Larry knows what he is doing, and he’s doing just that. He doesn’t give a crap about us on the bottom. The Executives are there to make themselves and their investors rich, not us. People need to wake up and realize that if you work for a large company you are made to feel important only to keep morale high enough to generate income for the company, outside of that, you mean nothing. Payroll is the only thing a company has absolute control over, think about it. You can’t make people shop in you store, and you can’t make them spend large amounts. What you can do, is cut your payroll down and increase you profits. The less checks you are writing, the more money you have in your pockets plain and simple. Companies also like to see what your limits are. If you can run your store just enough on minimal hours with generating any major problems, then they are going to see if you are capable of doing it with less and less until they find that thin line where it is just absolutely undo able. I don’t mean to sound like an a--hole or condescending, but it’s the facts and it’s taken me 13 years in retail to understand that. I wish everyone on here the best, and my advice is get out while you can.
