Walgreens Complaint - "The Company that Cares" Does NOT Care About Their Employees!
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA -- It is 6:22 AM in the Charlotte, NC region. This area of NC rarely receives snow, and our road crews are ill equipped to handle this kind of weather. As a life long resident of the Charlotte region I know that when it snows people stay home. People do not go shopping. People do not buy anything.
My husband has worked for Walgreens for five years as an Assistant Manager. When it snows and ices Walgreens is the only store in the whole region that stays open. They don't get much business at all. They probably spend more money forcing their employees to drive in unsafe conditions than they actually make all day.
Walgreens never delays opening their stores or closes for inclement weather. My husband just slid off the road and had to be pulled out. He still has to go to work. His district manager is from an area in the midwest where it snows frequently and therefore people are used to driving in the snow where he is from. His name Mr. Vanderduke. He does not even blink when he forces his employees to risk their lives by driving in unsafe conditions.
Please boycott Walgreens. Any corporation that cares more about the bottom dollar than the lives of their employees does not deserve customers.
