Sears Credit Card Applications

Okay  I've worked at Kmart for quite a while now, and our supervisors have always been pushing for cashiers to sell smart plans and do more Sears Credit Card applications. I will not lie most of our cashiers do not ask  "May I put this on your Sears Credit Card today?" while ringing people up...which may have something to do with our Sears applications being so low. I however ask every customer that comes through my line (as it is my luck that if I don't it happens to turn out my manager is right behind me breathing down my neck waiting to yell), but today our managers gave notice slips to us stating that if  we do not get at least ONE sears credit card application processed and ONE smart plan sold by the end of the week we get a "verbal interview", then a the next day if still nothing "written notice" and then fired if by the end of the month we have none. (Did I mention all the cashiers are only working about 4 hour shifts right now and maybe maximum 4 days a week?) 

I do plenty of Smart Plans, but NO ONE wants a credit card with what 32.19% APR financing?????  I've given up on asking if they'd like to use their Sears card and now go straight for "Would you like to apply for a sears credit card today and receive a free gift" (our store gives away gifts...which happens to be a 2 liter bottle of pop...wooo what a gift.) Still I get all "No" answers, it's not my fault that someone doesn't want a horrible credit card, I cant exactly shove it down their throat and say that they will apply for it.

My question would be is this threat of theirs even legal? What if I do happen to be fired over this issue??
