Wal-Mart has security camera issues

In 2015, a woman named Lisa Kennedy was using a handicapped dressing room at a Wal-Mart located in Michigan when she noticed a security camera in the reflection of the mirror. It wasn't located directly inside the dressing room, but it was a ceiling camera just outside the door. The camera was positioned such that it had a clear overhead view into the dressing room, making Kennedy uncomfortable enough to snap a photo and post it on her Facebook page. She even brought her husband back the following day to confirm her beliefs, and after spotting the security camera himself, he approached several managers and other Wal-Mart employees regarding the situation, including both the store manager and assistant manager. The only response they received was that Wal-Mart's corporate office decides where the security cameras go, and that there was no way the dressing room could be visible. Wal-Mart later claimed that the camera was never functional and was simply there to deter shoplifters.

A separate Wal-Mart location in Pennsylvania had even worse issues with a security camera that was discovered in a bathroom. Reported by the Huffington Post, several Wal-Mart employees discovered a hidden camera in a unisex bathroom, used by both customers and store workers. The camera was installed crudely on a shelf, hidden behind a cardboard box with a peep hole drilled through it. You might be thinking that some pervert installed the camera so they could make some extra cash by uploading the videos online, but in reality the store managers installed it. When confronted, the store managers denied the accusations. However, having photographic evidence allowed these employees to not only sue Wal-Mart but four of their managers as well. Their reason behind installing the cameras in the first place was to prevent theft, once again proving that Wal-Mart managers will do a lot to make sure store loss isn't taken out of their paycheck.
