Rite Aid Complaint - Employees May Be Rude For A Reason
SALISBURY, MARYLAND -- These employees may be rude for a reason..it's how they're treated by the company. I have a relative that has worked for Rite Aid for years. Unless you're a store manager, you're screwed. They continually treat their employees like slaves. They cut hours on purpose so they lose their insurance. They don't post their schedules until the last minute, so there's no way you can schedule a dr's appt or anything else. They are now cutting their elderly employees hours down to 15 a week so they lose their benefits and their health insurance, the thing they need the most. My Mother is 72 years old and only works to keep her health insurance. My Father just passed away and now they're pulling the rug out from under her. This is what you get after 25 years of service. You are just a body, not a person in their eyes. My Mother can no longer drive and since my Dad passed, they've scheduled her to work every evening shift, so a good portion of her paycheck now goes to a taxi service.
None of my family, including extended family, will ever walk into a Rite Aid again. They make me sick the way they treat these employees. The bottom line is the almighty dollar, they don't care about you. I hear now that they're considering cutting everyone's hours and hiring more people just so they can get rid of the benefits. I hope they go bankrupt...it would serve them right. Their stores aren't even that nice compared to other drug stores. They probably won't even be surprised when the attorney contact them.
It appears they have many lawsuits. What they've done to a couple of these women is illegal. I hope they Win big, at least big enough to keep paying for health insurance.
