Maybe They Didn’t Want To Share Hotel Rooms To Help Keep Costs Down

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. confirmed Wednesday that it fired several executives but would not detail the reason.
“Three company officers were terminated for failing to follow internal company rules,” spokeswoman Mona Williams said. Four other workers who were not at the executive level were also terminated for failing to follow Wal-Mart rules, she said.
The terminations occurred over the past several days, Williams said.
The Benton County Daily Record newspaper reported in Wednesday’s edition that among those let go was Jim Haworth, executive vice president of operations for the Wal-Mart division.
