My daughter currently works two jobs. During the day, she works as a substitute teacher and on nights and weekends, she works at Kmart.
She would like the teaching position to become permanent, but a wrench has been thrown into those works. The district where she does most of her substitute work has a student teacher in her specialty who also is a basketball coach, and this is a district with a storied basketball heritage. Because we have screwed up values in this country, "Basketball Jones" is more likely to get hired before my daughter.
She was told a couple weeks ago that the Kmart where she works, and has her benefits, will be closing in May. She asked us not to say anything, but it was in the news yesterday. She was told that it wasn't likely that there would be anything open in other stores. She has been with Kmart for over 10 years. But according to this story, the employees were informed of openings in other stores. I say we all take a trip to Hoffman Estates, Illinois, to the headquarters of Sears Holdings and see if we can fins a bunch of people with long noses.
Now there more disgruntled soon to be former Kmart employees who may become future Evil Big Box Store(tm) employees. Or they may aim at the local Target.
