for WAG, RAD, CVS, ESRX, MHS....
I observe the WAG near where I live, the stored has 2 pharmacists.
M – F: 8:00AM-10:00PM
14 hours a day and these pharmacists make $50/hour which the store pays (14*50*2) = $1400. How much profit from drugs the store must sell survive???
More info from stockholders meeting!
At Dec. 31, Walgreens operated 7,131 locations in 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. That includes 6,636 drugstores, 596 more than a year ago. The company also operates work site health centers, home care facilities and specialty, institutional and mail service pharmacies. Its Take Care Health Systems subsidiary manages 678 in-store convenient care clinics and work site health and wellness centers.
Good response to what apparently was a post from Yank. I don't read his garbage and in fact have him on ignore but I have some advice for you. You responded like you were talking to a poster who gets it, and not a brick of cheese, which is what Yank is! He has had the same things "explained" to him for years, but yet he still comes back with his nonsense. He is just angry that he received an "involuntary separation" which means he was canned years ago for being a very poorly performing employee and even though this fact has been "explained" to him over and over he doesn't get this either. ROTFLMAO!
I realize that what pharmacists make sounds like a lot to someone who sweeps the floors for a living like chang.jin95, but if you want to make money like those you are envious of then you should go to pharmacy school, get registered and you can make some big money too. One problem, if it were that easy, then we wouldn't have a severe shortage of pharmacists like we do today. I thought we covered supply and demand in yesterday's seminar on why pharmacists are paid what they are paid. Moral, if you envy a certain occupation based on how much money they make but have no idea on what you have to do to be qualified for that job, then it's best fo keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot than to open it and remove all doubt! LOL!
