Employees at my local corporate weed store just got their hours cut before Christmas

There’s a different cannabis dispensary in this state that is electing to close two hours early across the state today for a huge employee holiday party

Employment has been shaky for everyone over the past two years. COVID nearly decimated many industries and at the very least shook-up the ones that survived. Despite being relatively lucky myself to be in an industry that saw an increase in revenue due to COVID mitigation practices, most of my closest friends were not so lucky. They either lost large portions of their salaries or their entire jobs altogether. I felt terrible watching this happen to so many people, as the pandemic was making life miserable for nearly everyone I know. Even though we’re getting close to the two-year mark, we haven’t seen the end of the shake-ups. For instance, the bowling alley in my city held out until a few months ago. Now they’re closing and a new church is opening in their old building in a few months from now. Similarly, one of our state’s biggest corporate weed retailers cut all of their employees hours back to 32 a week in the month leading up to the Christmas holiday. That means that all of their employees receiving benefits were notified of them expiring in just a few weeks before the big holiday, right when some are relying on their incomes to support their families. It’s really sad to hear about this kind of mindset going on in the corporate weed world. There’s a different cannabis dispensary in this state that is electing to close two hours early across the state today for a huge employee holiday party. To see two different mindsets from two different corporate cannabis stores is interesting, especially in our medical cannabis market.
