They sure will make bazillions at corp. while the average wags joe will make squat, now look at what else they are taking from the stores!
Here is a post you gotta see!
I cannot believe that today,Walgreens announced that there will be no company gift cards for Christmas for any of it's employees! That really stinks. I've worked for Walgreens for 19 yrs. and cannot believe that they would do this to us! Why not cut out the use of company cars,paying for gas for those cars. We all have to get to work one way or another be it public trans,our own cars,car pooling etc...work dang hard for our customers and the company and they deside to give us 25% discount several times a year! They want us to spend our money in our stores,keep our stores neat,clean,inventory and stock levels down and accurate and slap us in the face! It is very hard to stay positive and upbeat about the company when they take the "littlest things" away from us working class who are trying to stay above water in the hard times. It is leaving alot of employees with a bad taste in their mouth and in turn having an attitude that it's a job and thats it,no giving it 110% and thats what is so sad.
For goodness sakes stockmann, let me speculate about your insightful post:
terrible: the pristine balance sheet
terrible: the 30% gain in stock price since the first of the year.
terrible: the store expansion, in spite of a horrible economy.
terrible: the expense control, returning huge profitability to the stockholders.
terrible: the amazing outlook for this company.
terrible: your portfolio returns, since you probably have this stock short.
I'll tell you what I think is terrible, in my opinion: Your post. My suggestion to you, my friend, is to stay away from the keyboard and let the big boys and girls have their intelligent turns.
