Family Dollar Stores - Christmas greed at its worst
Urge Family Dollar to reverse this injustice to hard working employees…and to Christmas!
This Christmas, Family Dollar Stores is breaking new ground by opening some of its stores on Christmas morning. All other major discount retailers (Fred's, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, etc.) are honoring families by remaining closed to allow employees to spend time with their children.
In an internal memo received by AFA, Family Dollar shamelessly shows corporate greed is behind the decision: "Only 2 people working per store on Christmas day. Each store needs to do $1100 in sales in order to break even, this is why we only have 2 people working."
This means on Christmas morning, while Family Dollar executives are sitting around the Christmas tree with their families, their employees will be leaving their children at home, just to make a few paltry dollars for the company.
A great many of Family Dollar employees are mothers, many of them single parents. Shame on Family Dollar for breaking up families on Christmas morning!
Urge Family Dollar to reverse this injustice to hard working employees…and to Christmas! Let's stop the corporate greed of Family Dollar before it starts!
If Family Dollar opens its doors this Christmas, it will open the floodgates to other discount retailers doing the same. In a few short years, Christmas Day will give way to full-blown corporate greed.
Let Family Dollar know, in no uncertain terms, if it opens its doors on Christmas Day, you will take your business elsewhere!
