Sorry, Walmart: Catherine Plamondon says it's too little, too late. Plamondon was one of 19 people with intellectual disabilities receiving on-the-job training at Walmart stores in Quebec who saw the program cut, then reinstated, all in the past few weeks. After a wave of sharp criticism, the company reversed its decision, saying "all program participants who want to return under the same conditions that were previously available can do so." But for Plamondon, 39, who worked at a store in Shawinigan in Quebec's Mauricie region, the damage was done. She said she has no intention of going back to Walmart. "I don't want to go back. They caused us too much pain," she said.
