One Step Forward...Two Steps Back!
What's sad is that we've got one group of employees who are serious about their jobs and want to do things to improve conditions for everyone. But, on the flip side, we've got employees doing everything they can to line their own pockets and they are making things bad for the good workers.
The fact is that there will be turmoil through the weekend as the rest of the thieves are weeded out. Unfortunately, the first two that have been caught are Black women. This isn't to say that everyone connected to stealing will be Black but they will be Black or Hispanic because we comprise almost the entirety of workers at this store.
Those of us who have been doing the right thing are disgusted because, while these workers will lose their jobs, we will all be faced with the aftermath of feeling like you need to be proven innocent--even though you've been accused of nothing.
It's unfortunate that some of us engage in stereotypical behavior, but you have people of all races who get down like that.
I just wanted to bring this up because this is not uncommon at other workplaces. There's always a group trying to do the right thing and another group, who seems determined to undermine anything positive that can happen.
Which side are you on?
Are you part of the problem or part of the solution?
It's something we all have to reflect on.
