Read the information accumulated by Snopes at http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/sears.asp. If you have an option, when you are shopping, please choose Sears. I choose to not support the war, but I do choose to support the troops - and the amazing company that also supports our men and women in uniform. I will be doing my shopping with the company who cares!I HOPE you have all seen the reports about how Sears is treating its reservist employees who are called up? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up.
Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years. I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution.
I suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves.
Pass it on.
