Walmart Greeter With Cerebral Palsy Could Lose Job Due To Change In Job Description

A longtime Walmart greeter's job description is being changed by the retail giant and because of his cerebral palsy, he may have to find a new place to work. Adam Catlin has been a greeter at the Walmart in Selinsgrove for about 10 years and he is customer favorite. But on Saturday, Adam says he was told that due to a change in corporate policy, his job description will change. He must now stand for his entire eight-hour shift and lift up to 25 pounds. He says those tasks are impossible for him to do because of his cerebral palsy. Adam tells our news partner Newswatch 16 that he has until April 26th to comply with the new job description or he no longer has a job. Adam’s mother posted about the situation on social media and the post was shared thousands of times. Responses to the post shows that many people are outraged. And, a coworker has started an online petition in the hopes that Adam will get to keep his job. A manager at the Walmart told Newswatch 16 he was unable to comment.
