Lowe’s treats OSH work­ers un­fairly

Ripon Bulletin - - Opinion - Mar­lene Figone Man­teca

Ed­i­tor, Man­teca Bul­letin, This is a copy of a let­ter I sent to Lowe’s. I can­not be­lieve that a large cor­po­ra­tion can get away with their treat­ment of Or­chard Sup­ply Hard­ware em­ploy­ees.

Please send your own let­ter as it is un­fair treat­ment of these peo­ple.

Lowes

1605 Cur­tis Bridge Rd Wilkes­boro NC 28697

To your board of direc­tors and de­ci­sion mak­ers of your com­pany:

I am writ­ing about the un­fair treat­ment of the Or­chard Sup­ply Hard­ware em­ploy­ees that are not be­ing given a fair chance in the em­ploy­ment world be­cause of your de­ci­sion to close all of these stores.

I un­der­stand that you are not pro­vid­ing any em­ploy­ment (a min­i­mal open­ings of less than 7 open­ings in your ex­ist­ing Lowe’s stores) in cities that would only add ex­ces­sive costs to drive to work, and you are not pro­vid­ing any em­ploy­ment train­ing or op­por­tu­ni­ties in em­ploy­ment agen­cies to go into to the ex­ist­ing com­pet­i­tive sys­tem. Re­ally?

I know that sev­eral of your em­ploy­ees that have worked for OSH for over 20 years are in this same lo­ca­tion. Wow.

Do you treat your ex­ist­ing em­ploy­ees the same way at Lowe’s?

Cer­tainly, there are ways that you could and should be more sup­port­ive to these em­ploy­ees of OSH that need to work to pay their bills.
