Walmart cutting greeters from workforce

Walmart is cutting greeters from its workforce, and some workers with disabilities say the company is targeting them.

More than a thousand store locations are making the switch to customer hosts instead of greeters. This means higher pay, more responsibility and more physical demands.

One employee, who has cerebral palsy, says he will lose his job as a Walmart greeter in April. Because of his physical limitations like heavy lifting and standing, he says he cannot apply as a customer host.

Walmart says it will extend its transition period to see if employees with disabilities can be accommodated.
