Yep, pure union busting. Close store using phony claim, make current employees reapply for their old jobs. Only those jobs go to newer, younger, and much lower on the pay scale hires.
Walmart announced Monday that it is temporarily closing its Pico Rivera supercenter on Washington Boulevard due to plumbing problems but City Manager Rene Bobadilla said a union official told him that all 530 employees have been laid off.
Police arrested dozens of people protesting working conditions and wages at a Walmart in Pico Rivera Thursday after they allegedly refused to move from an intersection they were blocking.
Officers took 23 people into custody around 6:30 p.m. in the 8500 block of Washington Boulevard when they inhibited traffic at Washington and Paramount boulevards, sheriff’s Lt. Alex Villanueva said.

I'm curious more about profit in those areas. From what I'm seeing a couple have very low property value and high crime. It could just be simply they are closing and don't want to make the real issue shown out of embarrassment....whatever that may be.
As for using Walmarts as a detention center...that just really wouldnt work. There are tons of doors and exits all over the store. Be easier to just throw down some barb wire in a circle and put people in. But lets say for the sake of doom porn....it could store alot of equipment that people wouldnt be able to see...shipping bays are already there and tons of space inside to store stuff.
To me this shows more a sign of the economy. Like if Walmart can't even survive how can any business...
