i had a boyfriend that lived in my home with my children and I for about three years, things are not the same and i realize i do not want to marry this person or continue allowing him to stay any longer under the same roof as my children. he lost his job and has been at home for two months now.
he does not pay rent or help with any mortgage payments. i have not done partition of my property yet and may need my ex husband to file for eviction notice since the home is in both of our names. i will contact the sheriff office in my city because he has become extremely aggressive.

I got caught shoplifting the other day at one of the stores commonly shoplifted from. I got brought to the back and they went through my inventory and even though I had paid over $100 for the rest of my items, they claimed I stole $60 something worth of items. But then allowed me to purchase one of those items anyway. But the police were called and I am supposed to go back to receive a citation. Well later that night after reviewing my receipt I came to find out I had actually paid for one of the items they had charged me for that cost $25. But so then I realized on top of that that they let me repurchase the same item before leaving despite having had gone through all my inventory. I’m not sure if this is a big enough mistake on their part that I can use against them or not. But I also can’t seem to get anyone from there to call me back about incident either. Do I have leg to stand on in this case or does it not matter?

In 2010 I relocated from Gainesville, FL to Houston, TX and worked for a retail pharmacy chain. I had worked for the company for about 3 years and had a position as Lead in the pharmacy upon transferring into a store in Houston. While awaiting he approval of my license with the state board of pharmacy I worked in another department of the store. About 2.5 months after the transfer I was informed that my title and pay would have to temporarily change to reflect my current position until my license had clear. My pay was then cut by 20%. After I was licensed and once again held a position in the pharmacy my title was never changed back to Lead and my pay was never increased to what I was making previously. I first approached management, who in turn spoke to the district manager. My manager informed me that my pay wouldn’t change, with the explanation that the cost of living is much less and my current pay would align with the that cost and what other employees of that position earned. I fought this with HR and employee relations just to receive the same answer of a cost of living decrease. After doing some research of my own, I found that there is no such decrease, the cost of living is similar if not greater. Many of the raises I recieved in Florida were for merit purposes. After 5 years in Houston with the company, I still make less than I did before I moved. Is there a cost of living decrease that can be legally used to cut my pay by 20%? And if not, is there anything i can do or file against the company?

From this website it seems like Walmart has a lot more shoplifting questions/issues. Why are there almost no questions about Target shoplifting? Is Walmart stricter?
