Urbin Report

Thursday, March 27, 2003

Arrived in my email today. Having worked for Sears in High School & College, I'm not surprised.

This is true according to snopes.com:

IT IS ALL ABOUT HOW YOU TREAT THE PROTECTORS OF OUR LAND.

I assume you have all seen the reports about how Sears is treating its
reservist employees who are called up? By law, they are required to hold
their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a
big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up...

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining
all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all
called up reservist employees for up to two years. I submit that Sears
is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its
contribution.

I suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell
them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it
well deserves.
