Why should ANY profession have a minimum anymore? Minimum wage, historically, was targeted at single-bread-winner families. Now that both spouses work in most cases the need for minimum wage is lessened due to that fact. You also don't need to pay teenagers a "living" wage.

I guess that it only makes sense that, in the great state of Illinois, where 4 of our last 7 governors have spent time (or are currently) in jail, that a CONVICTED felon could run for public office!

I can see police officers or medical workers or other necessary workers getting $15/hr minimum, but fast-food workers? All they do is work to provide a luxury. Most of them could and/or should go get some vocational training in order to get a job that pays better, such as Cindy Enriquez mentioned in the article. If she really wants to be a police officer, then I am sure there are scholarships or loans…

Walgreen to close 76 unprofitable stores

4 months ago from Chicago Tribune

From from Chicago Tribune:
Walgreen Co. on Tuesday said it plans to close 76 unprofitable drugstores starting in the second half of the year as part of a plan to save $40 million to $50 million per year beginning in its fiscal 2015.
 
Including the closures, the company still plans to have a net increase in store count in 2014 of between 55 and 75 locations. It operates 8,210 drugstores nationwide, 138 more than a year ago.
 
Walgreen will take charges of between $240 million to $280 million in its third and fourth quarters related to the closures.
 
The company did not immediately specify the locations of the stores.
 
“While we seize the opportunity for store growth as the population ages and consumers look to community pharmacy for their health needs, we also continue to focus on optimizing our assets and organization to position Walgreens for our future as a global company,” said CEO Greg Wasson, in a statement.
 
The company also on Tuesday said second quarter net income fell slightly to $754 million, or 78 cents a share, down from $756 million, or 79 cents a share, in the same period a year ago, as a slower cold and flu season and severe weather throughout much of the United States dragged on profits.
