                          SELF-CHECKOUT

When it comes to shopping , never enable a business to destroy the job of a human being.

Self-checkout is being deployed all over this country for one Purpose and that is to achieve corporate bottom line. 

 Its sole intent is to replace people with machines that do not ask for pay raises and do not require medical benefits to protect themselves. THEY DON’T EVEN PUT YOUR  PURCHASES IN THE BAG.  “THIS  BECOMES  YOUR JOB!” It’s  a great strategy if they can convince shoppers like you and me that this somehow benefits us. 

 YOU SHOULD DO ONE OF TWO THING TO MAKE THE POINT.  If you are being informed that the self-checkout center is open.

 FIRST: You  request they open another register as you are in a bit of a hurry !                                                   

“IF THIS GETS NO RESULTS, GO TO THE SECOND STEP”.

SECOND : As you pull your shopping cart in front of this JOB KILLING MACHINE, you call to the  OVERSEER  of your work and ask aloud  “I NEED A CASHIER TO PLEASE CHECK ME OUT. I’M IN A BIT OF A HURRY !” 

If the reply is ” you’re on the self-checkout line”. Then you reply, “I’M SORRY BUT I DON’T WORK HERE ! THAT WOULD BE AN EMPLOYEE’S JOB !

IF NO SALES PERSON OFFERS ASSISTANCE , THEN…… YOU……SIMPLY…….LEAVE  YOUR CART WHERE IT IS AND DEPART.

 AS THIS BECOMES  MORE AND MORE A REGULAR  OCCURRENCE IN STORES ACROSS THE NATION, AND THAT SALES ARE BEING LOST AS WELL AS TIME LOST BY EMPLOYEES HAVING TO RESTOCK THE MERCHANDISE  CUSTOMERS HAVE  LEFT BEHIND,  THEN  THEIR PLAN BECOMES A WASTE OF TIME AND SURELY AN INEFFECTIVE TOOL IN THEIR ATTEMPT TO CUT MORE AND MORE EMPLOYEES FROM MAKING A SIMPLE LIVING AS TO ACHIEVE THEIR BOTTOM LINE.

 BIGGER  INCOMES FOR THE  FEW AT THE TOP,  AND LESS FOR THE MANY IN NEED OF A LIVING WAGE, NEAR THE BOTTOM !

 

One thought on “SELF -CHECK OUT !”

  1. I guess I have to be the voice of reason on this site….any American company will manage their bottom line any way they can WITHIN the law….getting angry with Walmart or any other so called wealthy corporate American company is silly…call the legislators and change the law…this website calls for a $10 minimum wage across the board for workers with no depend ants and $15 per hour for workers with dependants….let’s do the math…a non dependent worker works 40 / week at $10 /hr…that is a gross of $400 per week…after paying taxes which differ from state to state and who and how the employee filled out their W-2 and I-9…their net pay would be approximately $340 to $350…that’s a monthly net income of $1400…and an annually net earnings of $18,200..which is only $4300 above the poverty line…by time you pay a mortgage or rent…by gas…food…cell phone bill…cable bill….you’re upside Down…IT SIMPLY DOESN’T WORK…try this….go get a cashier job at Walmart for $8.00/hr….while you are not checking out customers make sure the candy rack is straightened out and ready for the customer….make sure the soda container is neatly stocked and sightful for the customer…practice smiling when a customer arrives…make eye contact with the consumer….GO THE EXTRA MILE FOR YOUR EMPLOYER…if management and upper management don’t recognize your commitment and talk to you about moving up in the company….QUIT…THAT COMPANY IS NOT FOR YOU…understand….if you work hard…show up on time…go above and beyond your job scope…create ways to better the company…learn and perfect a skill set….NO EMPLOYER IN THE WORLD WOULD NOT MOVE YOU UP AND OFFER YOU MORE MONEY…I am self employed and I have a motto….I don’t hire people….I rent their behavior….renting good behavior means my customers are going to get the best we have to offer…just ask anyone who has been in my restaurants….stop blaming corporate America…kick your own ass…go out and work as hard asbyou can….and by the way…bring a very long ladder…because you will climb to the top quicker than you think…peace to ALL
