What made it noteworthy? Well, Beth quit over the PA system … and she had a lot to say.
In the video, she calls out the store manager Jared for being “a pervert.” She also names and shames two other managers for “constant gaslighting,” and for treating their employees, particularly the elderly, “like s—t.”
“Shame on you for treating your associates the way you do,” she says. “I hope you don’t speak to your families the way you speak to us.”
After listing the names of several colleagues and expressing her support for them, Ms. McGrath added: “Walmart doesn’t deserve y’all.”
“F—k management, and f—k this job,” she concluded. “I QUIT.”
The video has garnered over 5.3 million views and over 850,000 likes on TikTok. It’s also gone viral on Twitter.
McGrath also posted a follow-up video, in which she explained her motivations.
“I didn’t record the video for clout,” she says. “I recorded the video for my fellow co-workers to let them know that I do love them, and I do want what’s best for them. I wanted to be their voice. I wanted to be my voice.”
McGrath lets viewers know that she is “so grateful” for the emotional support and monetary donations she has received since the video went viral. Getting choked up a little, she ends by saying that if she could give anyone advice based on the experience she’s had after posting the video, she would say, “Do not be afraid to speak your peace, even if it tears you down first.”
