Thread regarding Lowe's Cos. layoffs

This is discrimination against older employees

The random scheduling is the way Lowes discriminates against older employees. It is rough hardly ever having two days off in a row, one weekend off every two months, closes followed by opens, four long days then a short day. Its bad enough being on concrete floors for an eight hour shift, depending on how the days fall, four 9-10 hour shifts in a row can be murder. Lowes wants youthful people with little to no family to interfere with their work life. The new schedule started with Marvin. What easier way is there to maximize shareholder value than to drive out the older, tenured employees and replace them with lower paid twenty somethings who have no memory of all the things Lowes has taken away from it's employees. But, but, the stock price... sure, too bad almost no hourly associates can afford to invest any meaningful amount into the shares.

Perfectly stated, @3ska+17GJaWzH.

Lowes is trying to run all the seasoned employees. They are trying to get rid of all the knowledge. Anyone can sell you two pieces of tile but what grout is going to stick them together.

Where have you been for the last 2 years? Or did your store/region not get the new scheduling until much later? The Central FL stores were in the “test” market for the massive mistake of a new scheduling system. Without a doubt, tenured associates were affected the most and many left as a result. It wasn’t a “test” but a plan.

Very true!

They want generation Z teens/twenty’s who’ll work for peanuts. Most still live with their parents, have no work ethic or knowledge.

But hey, they’ll work cheap when they show up!
