Walgreens sent out their benefits update for May 2009. In big letters it said "Combining Good Business Practices with Caring for Our People", which would lead you to believe they are going to improve employee benefits.
Instead it was about how they are taking away employees retirement medical and prescription drug plans. This will not just affect people who have just started but many who have been with Walgreen's for years. People who had been promised these benefits are now having them taken away.
One of the comments in the paper was, "Our goal is to reallocate our money to provide benefits to the greatest number of individuals at Walgreens." Does that mean the CEO, board members, and the upper levels or management? Hey Walgreens for a business that promotes families you do a really bad job for your employees!!!
