Happy Friday morning! The sunrise was on fire, which means sailors need to take warning. According to Accuweather, we have a 25% chance of rain today. After they pass through temps are going to drop a bit, but not a lot, back down into the 50s (F) for daytime highs. And yes, we are just a little over a month away from winter.
I worked yesterday and let me tell you, retail was slow. I did manage to get a bit sale, but are few and far between. How bad are they? On the schedule that was just written, which covers the week past Thanksgiving, I'm only working 2 days, 16 hours. Payroll is always the expense that gets cut first because it's the biggest liability a company faces, and in retail, that's the part-timers. Unlike me, many part-timers, especially seniors, are working to supplement their income, so losing hours is going to hurt them. This is why Trickle Down Economics fails, because those corporations that received Tax Cuts are still getting them, however American Capitalism dictates that they also need to have 5% growth and they have no problem cutting hours to achieve that goal.
So, in spite of the fact that they're cutting hours, the great orange retailer did see fit to give me a cap for Veteran's Day. This is why I don't wear hats.
