Accountability for and by whom and at what level?

I quickly read the cited article and it referenced a conference
call that included folks associated with "people of color" (their own description), Hispanics and "low-wage earners" generally. But, what about the women in their 50s and 60s who are single income households with mortgages, car payments, house and car insurances, property taxes, house repair emergencies, general property upkeep, heating oil purchase and a family member's funeral cost tossed in for good measure?

These are all called, "LIFE", and no one ever said life was fair, but when the Target in-store hierarchy is allowed to literally cuts productive workers hours in half, there is a major BRAND problem. Women in this store are now losing $300 (or more) PER PAY CHECK. There have been ten checks since the beginning of the fiscal year. Do the simple math--that's $3000 basic dollars out of just one woman's household "budget". Insufficient income=bill collectors, cancelled accounts, embarassment, frustration, loss of property, having to write to creditors to explain why they can receive their rightful payments.

So, who is to blame for these decisions to weed out the women (regardless of age, pregnancy or experience--it's a very slippery slope), the people of color, the Hispanics, et al? It's easy to lay this at Greg Steinhafel's feet, but is he the originator of the problem or the organizer of the solution? I don't have that answer. Can anyone out there offer insight?

Target has now become a magnet for perverts:

Fairfax Virginia County officials said an 11-year-old girl reported that a man touched her bottom as she was shopping with her father on June 18 around 5 p.m.

Officials say that surveillance video proves the girl’s claims.

Police released a description; the molester was wearing a gray shirt and dark shorts.

Transgender woman/man arrested for voyeurism at Target

A transgender Idaho Falls woman was arrested Tuesday on one count of felony voyeurism for a report that she took pictures of another woman changing clothes in a dressing room at Target in Ammon.

Shauna Patricia Smith, 43, is in custody in the Bonneville County Jail under the name Sean Smith, according to the jail’s active inmate roster. A Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office news release said the suspect also is known as Sean P. Smith.

Sheriff’s deputies responded Monday to the store after a woman reported that someone was taking pictures of her while she was inside a dressing room trying on clothes, the release said. The victim noticed the subject reaching over the wall with a cellphone taking pictures. The victim confronted the suspect who then fled the store on foot, the release said.
