My husband is one of the aging emplyees. After 26 years with the company - he has been job hunting for 3 months. But....Sears is saving you stock holders his salary, his 5 weeks vacation, and his retirement. They changed the name of his job and made the employees reapply with resumes etc. and didn't rehire the oldest employees. By the way .....We are stock hoders too. Take your violin and stuff it.
