    Big meeting today

    I think it shouldn't affect earnings for a couple of reasons - we are talking about 300+ stores from almost 5000 stores chain; in any case hotels, meals, etc. cost much less then salaries which pharmacists will not be paid while on strike. Just a guess that number of pharmacists will "cross the line" pretty quick and probably a lot of them after a couple of weeks not getting paychecks (mortgages, cars still need to be paid). But I could be wrong - time will show. If I remember correctly last time it happened, it lasted for about two weeks and customer service was great (probably due to extra tech staff).
