My husband has worked for Walgreens for five years. We live in the Charlotte region of North Carolina.
This region rarely receives winter weather, and as such our road crews are ill equipped to handle winter storms. It is currently 6:43 AM and my husband, at 5 AM, was forced to leave our home to go to work. The news says road conditions ar "hazardous" and people "should not drive if it can be avoided." People here do not drive in inclement weather. We don't get this kind of weather enough to know how to drive safely in it.
Moreover, the roads are unsafe. Walgreens does not care. Frequently they demand their employees risk their lives to go to work. Why?
Because Walgreens cares more about the bottom dollar than the lives of the people who work for them.
Please do not shop at Walgreens. A company that puts money before safety cannot be trusted.
