Frontline’s Shoppers’ Alliance Presents: Scheduling


Hey, hey Ms. Shah, can I talk to you for a second? Um, it’s really busy. I mean it’ll only take a second. Um, okay. I was wondering if it was possible to reduce my hours this week. You know my daughter’s babysitter quit, and I have nobody to watch her after she gets out of school. Hah! Do you think this is some, some kind of joke?! You do know that you work in retail, right? Okay, imagine this. Imagine I gave everyone exactly what they wanted. It would be chaotic in here. Okay look, no disrespect but this place is already chaotic. I’ve been dealing with jacked up scheduling since I got here, and I’m pretty much fed up with it! Okay. There’s the door – either you get out, or you stay here and listen to me. Remember, you’re an at-will employee. The choice is yours. You’re just going to let her talk to you like that? I mean, what am I supposed to do? Childcare is hella expensive, it costs so much to stay in the city… I need this money, man! You shouldn’t have to put up with that. Maybe the Center for Frontline Retail can help you. Who’s that? The Center for Frontline Retail is dedicated to retail workers and creating a stable work environment. I didn’t know there were organizations that cared about retail workers. Yeah! I actually have a brochure if you’re interested. Yeah, there’s a membership meeting the first Wednesday of every month! This looks pretty cool. I’ll definitely look into it. Thank you for the brochure, but you know, I have to get back to work. Good luck!
