So it seems Wal-Mart is making a change to its dress code, and for some employees, that means buying some new clothes.

Which, workers say, is problematic because that costs money. Money that some say they just don't have. Instead of the T-shirts required before, employees will have to wear white or navy blue collared shirts and khaki or black pants. 

Associates will also now be required to wear a vest, but that will be provided by the company. A human resources executive made the announcement on the company's employees-only website last month.

Comments from angry workers were leaked to Gawker.
