Thread regarding Lowe's Cos. layoffs

Treating people bad will start to affect Lowe's financial performance?

The raises we are given actually don’t keep up with the basic cost of living that we experience. Our premiums for our insurance are definitely not limited to 3% like our raises seem to be. And most of the raises at Lowe’s aren’t even approved or reviewed by anyone in the stores anymore, they simply sp– t them out of a computer algorithm at corporate headquarters. Is it any wonder that people complain and quit when no matter how well you do your job it doesn’t seem to matter in your raise?
I’m all for being realistic. I’m not a fool. Lowe’s is a business that’s out to make money. They want to maximize their profits. But when you no longer seem to value your people, care about their opinions or job performance then it seems to me that it begins to impact their behavior, morale and eventually the companies financial performance.
Lowe’s needs to step up their game and start taking their associates seriously, otherwise they’re going to watch as eventually everyone in the building takes a walk to better paying employers.

Why are you complaining! We took a sound business model from one of the oldest company, that had been around about 125 years and we embraced it. We will teach the customers how to shop. Our former company was often compared to warren Buffett. Kramer said to buy just one share! Soon you will see the fruits of our work ! Now get back to work

The saddest thing is that, those at the top, i.e. the best and the brightest", simply don't care. Their BLOATED pay and bonuses are so massive, that they could quit today and live the rest of their hollow lives wallowing in their "hard–earned" wealth. Sadly, and I do mean sadly, this IS last stage American capitalism. Hard work and ethics are now things to laughed at. And as "they" say at the top. "Let Them Eat Cake"! Your move.

Corporate believes it can mostly become an online retailer with stores to act as pickup points. Thereby, eliminating most of their workforce.
They’re trying it now with selling kitchen cabinets. It will FAIL miserably. It is failing miserably. The returns of Allen–Roth from customers buying online who have no clue what they’re doing have started.

These are several thousand dollar returns each!!! This a Very Costly lesson for Marv and Joe!
