Wal-Mart Technician Gets Fired For Eavesdropping Stephen Fung March 6, 2007 Extras Well, it was actually more than Eavesdropping. This employee was not only recording conversations between Wal-Mart and its Public Relations firm, but the employee was also intercepting text messages and pages that did not belong to Wal-Mart employees. Currently, no charges have been laid but the case is being looked at by the FBI. Williams said the technician gave Wal-Mart some indication about why he targeted the New York Times reporter, who has been covering such issues as the company's labor rescheduling program and wage capping, but couldn't go into detail now that the inquiry has been turned over to federal authorities. Barbaro declined to comment. Source: Houston Chronicle Share This With The World!
