Lux still has a 401k and a Pension, they also are not rewarding poor performance of unconsistant behavior among associates thru doctors. They have NOT laid off anyone and they have frozen increaseses for Docotors on up the the corporate ladder.
Lux is making these changes so that they can control there profit a little more closely and not have to do layoffs. Whats so wrong with that?? Payroll is the number one contributing factor to Cost Control in any business and with how spending from the general public is going we cant afford to have the same amount of people on our staff because we arent making the money need to support those Hours.
This is just simple business, If you Sell more units you have more Hours. Dont complain about having a job, especially a job that has a 401k, pension, multiple dentals plans, multiple Health insurance plans for Full and Part time Associates and Great Discounts on Eyewear for employees...
Look at teh BIG picture. Look at what we have as a whole, look at personal performance so that you can get those maximized hours in your location.
These are just cost control measures any smart business person would take so that they can still grow there business in a slightly declined economy.
