Wouldn't surprise me at all. Walgreens is ruthless and are starting to have a "mob " mentality.

Exactly what happend to my spouse. They could pay some "20" year old kid with no experience less then my spouse. Unfortunately for the store (other employees) nimrod kid has no clue and cannot do the same work that the older worker did. The SM is okay as long as she doesn't have to deal with other employees, she can order but cannot keep order in the store.
I feel bad for the other employees and the customers, they are left holding the bag.
Why stay there and work and why shop there, the numbers are going down every day and they still can't figure it out. Idiots.

They replaced my entire department with a combination of outsourced labor and temps, so yeah. Temps definitely tend to be younger, plus they get half the pay and no benefits.
