Let the cashiers sit while working.

As a physical therapist assistant I see an increadible number of patients who suffer from back, knees, feet pain, and in the last months I've had near a dozen of these patients who happened to be Walmart cashiers. They work their entire shift standing, which is not healthy at all, and what is worst, not necessary!

 As a client I would not feel disrespected by an old lady in her 60's, sometimes 70's because they are getting their job done while sitting. The nature of this job does not demand to be standing 8 hours, you can do the exact same work in a more comfortable posture. I am sure they would be happier, healthier and what should count the most for owners, they would provide the public with a much better service. 

 I have no idea of what the policy is, or if there is a good reason for Walmart's management for have their cashiers (most of them women) on their feet, but I consider there is no one more important than preserving the employee's health.
