millions of customers are not returning to Walgreens after the ESI mess so it seems it might be a good time to ease up on the hate for anyone.

I just read an article a few days ago that most of the ESI people are returning. Also, wasn't our stock price at a 52 week high recently?

It's not what it should be yet. I do hope for the rewards cards to work out, I think all workers including the SM must sign up 50 people a shift.

A 52 week high is still pretty weak. Our stock has been in the dumper for a while. Until the investors have some confidence in our business plan, the stock will stagnate. That confidence won't return with Wasson at the wheel.

I guess you don't get the concept of how it works. Yes, our 52 high is still weak. It's called being undervalued. That's why we're rated as a 'buy'. It means that when we get our shit together (and investors realize our value) the stock will climb. If everyone had great faith in our company,, our stick would be worth quite a bit and we'd be overvalued.

Let's face it. Things are going fine under Wasson. What's got your panties in a bunch? You got a few less budget hours and make a couple less dollars? I got news for ya. It's got much less to do with a man named Wasson and much more to do with a man named Obama. Hoping for WAG to fail and it actually happening are 2 different things. News of our death is greatly exaggerated.

Things are fine under Wasson? You're either a corporate troll or a complete moron. Things are okay, financially speaking, but they SHOULD be so much better. If you can't see that, you're part of the problem.

Has anyone noticed when he screws up and does not properly sign in, his location shows up either Chicago or somewhere in Ohio? Now I am wondering...does he sit in cubicle or have a window office that he does his data survey job from. The results that he provides are the cause for fewer hours all the stores are now receiving. He only spends the other half of his waking day on this forum in order to help back up his research and provide value to his own job! Stop feeding into his nonsense.

You're right. I can't help but think he is the poster child for the "new " Walgreens which is emerging
Scary.

Wrong. Wasson and Wagner both have stated that the changes taking place were long over due and has nothing to do with ESI or government. They have wanted to get to "industry standards" for some time and now seemed like the right time to do so. Amazing how the right time just so happens to be the time Wasson took over.

If you want to blame Obama, let's see what happens when he is no longer president. You think Wag will go back to the way things were before Obama after Obama is no longer president? Of course, Wag won't because it has been their plan to do what they are doing before Obama was elected.

Let's say youre 100% right Nick. It's still irrelevant. Walgreens doesn't exist for the pleasure of the employees. Walgreens exists in a semi-capitalist country where the primary goal is to please the shareholders.

You and I are like stock prices. We are only worth what the market says we're worth at any given moment. There is not a lot of value in unskilled retail labor, so we aren't worth that much (at least not until we gain experience or agree to take on increased supervisory responsibilities).

You can keep dreaming about companies like costco and the one or two other retailers out in the country who make an attempt to kiss their employee's ass. Unfortunately, those companies are few and far between and their business model is the exception, not the rule.

By the way, wife and diane, you guys need a new installment of 50 shades of grey or something. If you're researching my post history, you got way too much time on your hands. I don't blame you guys though for your little liberal and socialist dreams. Women usually are socialist. There aren't many who are able to think freely.

The thing you are leaving out of your statement is the fact Wag controls the market. Therefore, they control how much value they can place on a worker. You point to a capitalist COUNTRY but you are not looking how Wag is being ran. In a time when the company is telling its employees to be a leader, Wag itself is being a follower.

You want to point to a title and make blanketed statements on how your stock price is worth more based on that title. Your stock price should be based on a skill set not a title. This in a nut shell is exactly what is wrong with Wag. They put a title on someone who is not qualified to do the said title and people like you seem to think your stock price should be higher than someone who is actually more qualified to do the job because your title says your worth more.

By the way you make it out, people should respect your title and not you as an individual. All your value in life comes from the title you hold, not the person who holds the title. And you call it capitalism.

You must have read something in my post that I didn't read. I don't recall making any reference to my title whatsoever. In fact, I used the term "we" repeatedly.

Secondly, I stated that experience and the willingness to accept supervisory responsibility leads to a greater "stock" price (i.e. pay). No one would honestly dispute that statement.

The company is doing great financially, so apparently "they" ARE picking mostly qualified people, with some exceptions obviously.

Wag does not control the market. You can leave at any time and sell your services (employment) to whatever bidder you like.

You sound really bitter. If you're angry about being passed over for a promotion AND you still think getting promoted is mostly about substance and not politics...you're making a huge mistake. Stop wishing for the way things could be in an alternate world and accept the way they are in the real world.
