Wal-Mart says it will hire any veteran who wants a job and who has been honorably discharged from the military within the past year. The initiative, which starts on Memorial Day, is expected to lead to 100,000 hires in the next five years, the company said. Some observers expressed skepticism that the initiative will help veterans and accused Wal-Mart of limiting employees' hours to prevent them from receiving full-time pay.
