Many retailers are using the recession and Christmas to exploit new workers that they treat like slaves. No coffee break, no lunch break. Working extra long hours like way into the early morning then cut their time off just enough so they can call them only part timers. Giving them only minimum wages with no benefits. Hiring hundreds of extra workers that they treat like slaves until they drop and then the workers will just quit on their own because they cannot take it. It's all calculated exactly by the retailers knowing very well that 95 of the workers will not last until Christmas, but in the end it's just right for the retails.
Then thanks to our government the workers are being taxed to death. What happened to all the investigators that are suppose to protect our Hawaii people? Interesting, but I'm sure you will hear more about this from the actual workers themselves so you don't have to believe what I say.
