Workers in a Wal-Mart warehouse in Riverside County, CA, are suing Wal-Mart Stores Inc., warehouse operator Schneider Logistics Inc., and two staffing firms for forcing around 1,800 employees to work long hours under poor conditions without proper pay. In an amended complaint filed Nov. 30, the workers place the blame solely on Wal-Mart, insisting that the retailer pressured a contractor and subcontractor for faster work. However, Wal-Mart says it has no control over Schneider, and Schneider says the staffing firms it used to outsource labor are responsible for the management and payment of the warehouse workers.
