Forever 21 Demoted Employees and Took Away Health Benefits


batamotel:
MAKE IT VIRAL 

BOYCOTT FOREVER 21

Retail company Forever 21 sent this letter to all full time/non-management employees informing them that they will be demoted to part time, they and their families will lose their health and dental benefits, and they will no longer qualify for paid time off. Employees believe the company is punishing them to retaliate against Obamacare.

We were asked to share this by one of our fans, and now we are asking you to do the same. Don’t underestimate the power of your SHARE. Two weeks ago, US Uncut was the first place to widely publish McDonald’s now notorious budget, and it went viral across mainstream media. Thank you.

Damn that's messed up.

Shouldn't they have analyst who could have predicted they were operating beyond what they could afford? They are punishing their workers for them not handling their businesses.

The least they could have done was let them keep their benefits until the next enrollment period they would have had to renew.

I only buy their tanks and v- neck tees, so it won't be hard to cut them loose *shrug*

Bet ya the people at the top still eating good.

I still don't understand any of the  Obamacare healthcare plan that so many folks are opposed of..
I work at a hospital can they do this also? 
wow this sucks big time for the employees who work there fulltime .but for those who work there PT as supplement to their other fulltime job I guess it doesn't matter?

A lot of places are doing this so they wont have to pay health insurance for their employee's. They all stick around the 29.5 mark as well just under what is needed for them to provide health care.... its pretty sh*tty especially since these are already Min wage jobs. So there will be ppl out there having to work two PT jobs and still not get the health insurance that they need and still make less than 15,000 a year. They dont care.

This is why they dont feel the urge to change...lol sad truth is most consumers only care about how it would affect their way of life not the ppl who actually work for the company. It will become "poor people problems".... but when the "poor people" make up the majority its no longer just their problem... but  these will be the same ppl who will have to get gov assistance just to get by and ppl will complain again. Its all *&%^$#@Eed up really......

Exactly.  If you don't boycott, nothing will change.  And they know that people won't boycott for that very reason.

Outraged at the companies who do ish like this!! You're making millions annually, you really can't give your employees basic ass benefits? REALLY NOW? For God so loved the world or whatever it is you have printed on your bags? Really???

i can't boycott everywhere that's doing fcked up business practices.  sometimes you give enough of a damn and sometimes you don't...this is one of those times.  when i worked retail my employers did the same thing and obama wasn't even in office.  i know that obamacare will make it more widespread but i already did that with papa johns.  with all the recent boycotting in effect and my own personal ish going on, i just ain't got time to keep track of all of this.  they're not gettin anything but 20 bucks out of me every blue moon anyway, but i'm also not down to turn $20 to $30 somewhere else that's probably screwing over their employees as well.
