North Carolina Vignette: Guns And Police Race Relations On The Clinton Campaign Trail

A brief dispatch from Charlotte: "We are sick and tired of seeing hashtags, and buttons with our kids' faces on them, and t-shirts that have replaced our children's bodies," said Geneva Reed-Veal, whose daughter was Sandra Bland. Bland, age 28, was found dead in 2015 in a Texas jail cell, in a highly controversial case in which a minor traffic infraction was escalated by police into a major confrontation. A video of the confrontation was viewed by millions on You Tube. Reed-Veal is one of the group known as Mothers of the Movement who are touring swing states to encourage and inspire people to vote for Clinton. Theirs is a club, they say, whose membership they hope won't grow. It includes Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin; Lucia McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis; Gwen Carr, the mother of Eric Garner; Geneva Reed-Veal, and Maria Hamilton, the mother of Dontre Hamilton. Amongst them, they have plenty to say about America's criminal justice system, racial disparities, lax gun laws, and Clinton's commitment to addressing the violence and deaths caused by an under-regulated firearms market and a rash of racially biased- inflected deaths of unarmed people, for which the police have repeatedly been acquitted. When Mothers of the Movement spoke at the Democratic National Convention earlier this year, "Black Lives Matter" chants erupted. Clinton, they say, cares deeply about these divisive issues. The Clinton platform includes significant racial justice and gun violence prevention initiatives. "We have thousands of people dying from all these guns, it's really bad," said 56-year old Maria Hamilton, whose mentally ill 33-year old son Dontre Hamilton was, his mother says with evident pain, shot fourteen times by a Milwaukee policeman in a park in 2014. She also tells of a 15-year old who was able to obtain an automatic rifle within 45 minutes, pointing out the need for background checks, and closing the online gun sales loophole. Hamilton has been working on police accountability, crisis intervention training for police faced with mentally ill individuals, and other initiatives related to improving police/community relations. North Carolina is a key swing state in the presidential election, with hotly contested Senate and gubernatorial races. Geneva Reed-Veal and Maria Hamilton made a surprise visit to the two dozen volunteers in a makeshift North Charlotte campaign office in a little strip mall near an old police station and a Family Dollar store. They visited on October 21, one day after early voting opened in this state. The volunteers were a diverse and mixed crowd - some local Charlotte residents, a young man from Portugal, a few New Yorkers here to help out for the weekend, a Trinidadian-born woman who'd offered to make chili for twenty of the next weekend's volunteers, and an African-American Arkansan who, she said, had worked in every Clinton election "since they first ran for office in Arkansas". The volunteers stopped making calls to voters to hear the Mothers speak for 20 minutes. "We need someone in office in January who will pass legislation that will actually protect everybody," concluded Hamilton. Then she and Reed-Veal, a duet of tragedy and hope, left for their next inspirational visit, as the volunteers returned to dialing. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Muslim Woman Kicked Out Of Dollar Store For Religious Attire

A Muslim woman says she was the victim of discrimination when a Family Dollar clerk told her to remove her niqab or exit the store. Sarah Safi, 32, was at the store in Gary, Indiana, on Monday buying coals for a barbecue when she says the employee told her that she had to remove her modest Muslim garb or leave. “I might have made it 10 steps into the store and I hear the lady behind the counter say, ‘Ma’am, you need to take that off your face or you need to leave my store,’” Safi told ABC7 in Chicago. A niqab is a veil that some Muslim wear to cover their faces, with an opening for the eyes. Safi took out her cell phone and recorded part of the exchange. “I understand, but you have to understand too this is a high crime area and we get robbed a lot. You need to remove that from your face or remove yourself from the store,” the store employee says in the video. Footage of the incident was shared on the Vision Islam Facebook page, generating nearly 100,000 views.  “This is a country where we have freedom of religion and freedom of speech,” Safi is heard telling the employee. “I have a right to wear whatever I want to wear.” But Safi says she was faced with a choice. “Do I wait for the police to come and let my children see this, or do I go head and just go and let Allah handle it how he sees fit?” she recalled. She decided to leave. A spokesman for Dollar Express, which owns and operates several hundred Dollar Tree and Family Dollar stores, issued the following statement to The Hufington Post: “We deeply regret the incident that occurred recently at one of our stores in Gary, Indiana, and we are committed to taking steps to ensure that no customer is ever treated this way again. The conduct of the assistant store manager at that location was not in accordance with company policy and we are addressing this matter with her. We are also taking this opportunity to address with our workforce the importance of meeting the needs of a diverse customer base and providing a shopping environment that is respectful to all of our customers.” Despite the difficult incident, Safi still hoped for the opportunity to speak with the store clerk. “I would like to sit with her and speak to her about what I believe in,” she told the ABC station. “Because maybe if she heard and really listened to what I believe it would open her heart.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

10 Worst Companies To Work For

This article was originally published on 24/7 Wall St. Keeping employees happy can only improve a company’s bottom line. Employee satisfaction can significantly impact the productivity, sales, and reputation of any company. Despite its importance, many companies struggle to keep their employees content. While some companies have policies specifically designed to boost employee morale, others seem to prioritize it far less. For the fifth consecutive year, 24/7 Wall St. identified the nation’s worst companies to work for. 24/7 Wall St. analyzed thousands of employee reviews from jobs and career website Glassdoor. The site maintains a growing database of more than 8 million employee reviews for more than 540,000 companies worldwide. The worst rating any U.S. company received is 2.5 stars out of five, significantly lower than the 3.2 average company rating on Glassdoor. Three companies — Family Dollar Stores, Express Scripts and Forever 21 — received this lowest rating and top the list of the worst companies to work for. Click here to see the worst companies to work for. In an interview with 24/7 Wall St., Scott Dobroski, a Glassdoor spokesperson, explained that the three leading drivers of long-term employee satisfaction include: “culture and values, career opportunities, and trust in senior leadership.” For Dobroski, any company can improve these features by listening to employee feedback and addressing them in a timely manner. Many complaints about the companies with the lowest ratings concern the lack of those leading drivers. According to some employee reviews of RadioShack, for example, sales associates believe upper management is out of touch; they see little room for professional growth; and they are unimpressed by the company’s culture. Many employees at the worst companies to work for also cite poor work-life balance, low pay, and poor leadership as major reasons for their discontent. By contrast, technology companies such as Google and Facebook, which are some of the best rated companies, are notorious for high pay and generous perks. Tech companies are not the only ones that manage to take care of their employees. Wholesale grocery store Costco, for example, has some of the best employee reviews of any company. There are numerous highly rated companies such as Costco where pay is by no means the only factor in employee satisfaction. However, most of the worst-rated companies are customer-facing, low-paying businesses with high employee turnover rates. For nine of the 10 companies, the most commonly reported annual compensation on Glassdoor is lower than the national average annual wage of $48,320. The majority of these 10 companies operate in the retail trade sector, which has an above-average turnover rate, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The high turnover rates at these companies suggest employers treat employees as easily replaceable. With low-skilled workers readily available, employees at some of these companies may indeed be disposable. However, many companies with the lowest employee satisfaction are also not doing especially well financially, which may suggest that low employee satisfaction is but a symptom of poor management overall. The Employment Policy Foundation also estimates it costs a company an average of $15,000 each time a an employee leaves Just as employee satisfaction can impact profits, a company’s financial performance can impact employee satisfaction. Many major retailers are losing ground to online giants such as Amazon.com, and their in-store sales are falling. As a result, employees working on commission may find it more difficult to earn commission wages. Similarly, as many of these businesses close stores and implement other cost cutting measures, employees may be assigned shorter shifts and consequently earn less. In Kmart, for example, where cashiers frequently complain about the difficulty of working on commission at a failing retailer, all full-time positions were recently switched to part-time. To identify the 10 worst companies to work for, 24/7 Wall St. independently examined employee reviews on Glassdoor — this is not a Glassdoor.com commissioned report. To be considered, a company needed to have a minimum of 1,500 reviews and be currently operating and headquartered in the United States. Employee counts are from the most recent financial documents for each company. For subsidiaries, head counts are for the parent company. These are the 10 worst companies to work for. 10. Kraft Heinz Company (NASDAQ: KHC)  >Rating: 2.6> CEO approval rating: 24%> Employees: 42,000> Industry: Food manufacturer Kraft Heinz produces some of the most popular consumer brands in the country, including Kraft, Heinz, Oscar Mayer, Jell-O, Planters, and Lunchables. The company was formed in 2015 as the result of a merger between Kraft Foods Group and H.J Heinz Holding Corporation. Many employees cite the merger as having had a negative impact on the company’s culture. The merger resulted in numerous layoffs and plant closures across the United States. Employees also commonly complain about the company’s cost cutting measures and their difficulty in maintaining work-life balance. One former employee from Pennsylvania echoed many other complaints by writing “corporate leaders don’t truly respect or care about their employees. They only care about making money off of them.” The average employee rating of Kraft Heinz is 2.6 stars out of five, tied for the second lowest rating of any U.S. company. 9. Dillard’s (NYSE: DDS) > Rating: 2.6> CEO approval rating: 37%> Employees: 40,000> Industry: Department stores Founded in 1938 by William T. Dillard, Dillard’s department store chain has nearly 300 locations across 29 states. Despite going public in 1969, Dillard’s is still something of a family business. Currently, four of CEO Bill Dillard II’s siblings work as company executive officers, and William Dillard III, the CEO’s son, is a senior vice president. While the Dillard family may be happy with their jobs, the typical Dillard’s employee is not. With a 2.6 job satisfaction rating on Glassdoor, for the fifth consecutive year, Dillard’s ranks among the worst companies to work for. Dissatisfied workers frequently cite unrealistic sales quotas and poor management practices. Not only is employee morale suffering at Dillard’s, but it seems business is as well. In keeping with a nationwide trend among department stores, profits are down. The company posted net income of $269.4 million in its fiscal 2015, down from $331.9 million the previous year. 8. RadioShack > Rating: 2.6> CEO approval rating: 40%> Employees: N/A> Industry: Consumer electronics retail After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February 2015, RadioShack announced plans to close about half of its stores and lay off thousands of employees. Many complaints about the company are the result of its decline. As in-store sales fell over the past few years, numerous sales associates found it more difficult to earn commission. Many employees have reported working shifts without a single customer entering the store. Employees frequently cite low pay and incompetent upper management as major drawbacks of working at the company. After the bankruptcy, most of RadioShack’s stores were salvaged through a deal to co-brand locations with cellular phone provider Sprint. While the deal saved thousands of jobs, however, it has not meaningfully improved employee satisfaction. One of the most common complaints from employees is the heavy pressure to sell cell phones. 7. DISH (NASDAQ: DISH)  > Rating: 2.6> CEO approval rating: 42%> Employees: 18,000> Industry: CATV systems As is the case with many of the worst companies to work for, a large share of jobs at DISH are customer service oriented. Also similar to many companies on the list, dissatisfied employees at the company regularly cite long hours and poor work-life balance as the reason for their discontent. The subscription television service industry is notorious for poor customer relations. The customer experience of DISH’s 13 million-plus subscribers is not likely helped by low employee morale. Low employee morale may also be having an impact on the company’s bottom line as well as investor relations. The company’s stock price has fallen by roughly 25% in the past year, significantly underperforming the market. In addition, net income is down to $769.3 million in 2015 from $928.9 million the previous year. 6. Kmart (NASDAQ: SHLD) > Rating: 2.6> CEO approval rating: 20%> Employees: 178,000 (including Sears employees)> Industry: Department stores Kmart is another retailer with declining sales and low employee satisfaction. The chain is owned by Sears Holdings Corporation, which also owns Sears — also among the worst companies to work for. Kmart’s sales have fallen drastically over the past decade and a half, and lower sales mean lower wages for cashiers working on commission. On Glassdoor, employees often complain about low pay, long hours, and out of touch management. Like many other department stores, Kmart is hurting, and the number of store locations is dwindling. The number of U.S. Kmart locations fell from 1,152 at the end of fiscal 2013 to 941 at the end of fiscal 2015. 5. Xerox (NYSE: XRX) > Rating: 2.6> CEO approval rating: 36%> Employees: 143,600> Industry: Information technology services Xerox employees are far more likely to be dissatisfied with their jobs than employees at most other major U.S. companies. Frequent employee complaints include stagnant pay and poor management. CEO Ursula Burns, who worked her way up from an intern position with the company 36 years ago and is the first African American woman to lead a Fortune 500 company, is approved of by only 36% of employees. In addition to low employee morale and a lack of confidence in company leadership among employees, Xerox sales have declined in recent years. Annual revenue is down to $18.0 billion from $19.5 billion the year before and from $20.0 billion in 2013. Earlier this year, Xerox announced it would split into two distinct companies, one for business processes, including accounting and customer care, and another for document processing. The split is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2016, and has already spurred thousands of layoffs. 4. Sears (NASDAQ: SHLD) > Rating: 2.6> CEO approval rating: 19%> Employees: 178,000 (including Kmart employees)> Industry: Department stores A large share of Sears Holdings Corporation’s 178,000 employees work at one of 705 Sears department store locations spread across all 50 states. For the second year in a row, department store chain Sears ranks as one of the worst companies to work for. A disproportionate number of company workers complain about earning minimum wage and frequently declining commission rates. The company’s CEO, Edward Lampert, is also among the least popular in the country. Less than one in five Sears employees approve of Lampert — and likely with good reason. The company has posted a net loss of at least $1.1 billion every year since he took over in 2013. Low employee morale is likely affecting customers’ shopping experience. According to the American Customer Satisfaction Index, Sears ranks as the second worst department store for customer satisfaction. Sears Holdings also owns Kmart, an equally unpopular company to work for. 3. Family Dollar Stores (NYSE: FDO) > Rating: 2.5> CEO approval rating: 36%> Employees: 60,000> Industry: Discount stores With 8,042 stores in 46 states, Family Dollar is nearly ubiquitous across the nation. It also ranks among the worst U.S. companies to work for. The majority of positions at the company are in customer service, which many employees cite as the best part of their job. The customer service aspect of working at Family Dollar is also often part of negative employee reviews, however. Unqualified managers and poor work-life balance are the most commonly cited complaints on Glassdoor. One Family Dollar worker in Michigan complained succinctly, “low pay, long hours, unrealistic expectations.” Family Dollar was acquired by its former competitor Dollar Tree in July 2015. After the transaction, Gary Philbin was named CEO of Family Dollar, replacing Howard Levine. So far Philbin has not made a great impression on his employees, receiving an approval rating of just 36% on Glassdoor. 2. Express Scripts (NASDAQ: ESRX) > Rating: 2.5> CEO approval rating: 79%> Employees: 25,900> Industry: Health care plans Express Scripts is a third-party administrator of prescription drugs for various commercial and government health plans, and is the largest pharmacy benefit management company in the country. The average employee rating of Express Scripts is 2.5 stars out of five, tied for the lowest rating of any U.S. company. Employees commonly cite incompetent management, difficulty maintaining work-life balance, and long hours as major drawbacks for working at the company. Many employees report working 10-hour days. Though this is not the first time Express Scripts has ranked among the worst companies to work for, the company may be trying to turn things around. Earlier this year, Tim Wentworth took over as CEO. Chief executives can have an outsized impact on company culture, and some negative employee sentiment may have left with former CEO George Paz. 1. Forever 21 > Rating: 2.5> CEO approval rating: 30%> Employees: 30,000> Industry: Retail apparel The average employee rating of Forever 21 is just 2.5 stars out of five, tied for the lowest rating of any company based in the United States. Many employees cite inadequate benefits and strict company policies as drawbacks to working at Forever 21. Over the years, the store has been hit with several high profile lawsuits, including several filed by employees. In 2012, five Forever 21 employees filed a class action lawsuit against the company. The plaintiffs claimed that they and their co-workers were routinely detained in the store during lunch breaks and after their shifts without overtime pay so managers could search their bags for stolen merchandise — a part of the company’s former loss-prevention policy. Indeed, many employees on Glassdoor complain of not getting to leave the store until 2:00 a.m. or later, hours after the stores close, often receiving no overtime pay for the extra hours.

Ferguson Businesses Try To Rebuild After Protests

FERGUSON, Mo. -- Ten businesses here were completely destroyed by fire and several others were vandalized on Nov. 24, following protests over a grand jury decision not to bring charges in the killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. The McDonald's on West Florissant Avenue, a hot spot for protests since Brown was killed in August, was closed for over two weeks due to damage. On Wednesday, it finally reopened. Standing outside during a smoke break, two employees talked about how glad they were to finally be returning to work, and how tough it had been to go without pay. "Yeah, it kind of messed with our Christmas money, but we're going to earn it back," said one employee, who didn't give his name because McDonald's had told workers not to talk to the media. The McDonald's gained attention in August amid the protests that flared up after Brown's death, with police officers unleashing tear gas and rubber bullets on demonstrators just outside the restaurant's doors. The restaurant quickly became a haven for mothers, children, protesters, reporters and police. Lisa McComb, a McDonald's spokeswoman, told The Huffington Post that the restaurant reopened "thanks to the hard work of staff and restaurant crew." While repairs were underway, she said, McDonald's "did offer employees the opportunity to pick up hours in other restaurants." By Wednesday, the windows that were smashed in November had been replaced. Wooden boards remained nailed to the front of the restaurant and a door. The restaurant's television, which was looted, was still missing, though the mount remained on the wall. "It feels good we got the spot back," a McDonald's customer said, before ordering a quarter-pounder with Big Mac sauce. The morning after businesses were set ablaze, many employees who had lost their sources of income went to look at the remains of their workplaces. Nothing but a few children's toys remained of the former Family Dollar store. Examining the smoky remnants that day, an employee stood in shock. With his hands resting on his head, he nodded in disapproval. "I spent four years of my life at this place," the employee said. Workers at several nearby Family Dollar stores said no employees from the West Florissant location had been transferred to their locations. The corporate office did not respond to a request for comment about whether the company was working to get its employees new jobs. A few days later, Dennis Rose, 29, an installer sales specialist at O'Reilly Auto Parts in nearby Dellwood, stood by his workplace's remains. "My store looks like a crumpled-up soda," Rose said as he took pictures of the rubble. Rose was fortunate enough to be transferred to a nearby store immediately after the fire. "It's the holiday season," Rose said. "This is when we're expected to buy things for our families and kids and you shouldn't have this hanging over you." All of the employees from the West Florissant location have been successfully transferred to nearby locations, according to Mark Merz, a company spokesman. "A big part of O'Reilly's culture is our team members," Merz said. "They're our most valuable asset. We were fortunate enough to have other stores in the area that could accommodate them." Merz couldn't say whether the company will rebuild its Dellwood location, stating simply that the store is "damaged beyond immediate repair." Rose has worked in the area for two years and said Ferguson and Dellwood felt like home. "I live in Illinois, but I come here and work every day. This is my community," he said. "The news was talking about how riots can hang over an area. I'm hoping we're stronger than that and build back up." Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander recently announced the start of #FergusonRebuild, a movement that will provide nongovernmental grants to businesses in the community that were destroyed. "We have a lot of work to do in Ferguson and the surrounding area, but one of the first things we need to focus on is helping North County businesses that were damaged, destroyed or burglarized since August return to serving their community," Kander said in a statement. Towns that have experienced intense protests often have a difficult time recovering. In the late 1960s, racially charged riots rocked both Plainfield and Newark, New Jersey. Many residents subsequently moved away, and since then the communities have dealt with high levels of poverty and unemployment. Seretha Billups, 44, a Dellwood resident and an employee of Feel Beauty Supply, said business has been bad ever since the August protests. "Revenue has been extremely down. We don't have nearly as much business as we used to have. It's dragging," she said. Billups thinks her business is suffering because people from other parts of St. Louis County view Ferguson, and especially the West Florissant area, in a negative light. "People on the other side of town don't even want to come near Ferguson. They just want to stay away," she said. "People need to know that we are still here and we still want to have them as customers. We want them to come in this area and not fear anything." Businesses that don't have physical damage from the protests still face issues in the aftermath, according to Crystal Johnson, the owner of Creative Designs Gift Shop. "People don't want to hear that your business is in Ferguson or better yet on West Florissant," said Johnson. To keep her doors open, Johnson has offered to ship items to customers' homes and has relied heavily on social media to post images of her merchandise. Johnson thinks the community should hold a block party or "shop local" day to show support for the businesses. "Now that everything has happened, the ones that are doing the most suffering are minorities and small businesses," Johnson said. "We rally all over the world for this, but right here, where it's happened, we're suffering." Ryan J. Reilly and Hunter Stuart contributed reporting.

Family Dollar fourth quarter profit drops, same store sales improve marginally

Discount retailer Family Dollar Stores Inc (FDO.N), which is trying to ward off a hostile bid from rival Dollar General Corp (DG.N), said its fourth-quarter profit slid 66 percent hurt by inventory markdowns, restructuring charges and merger fees. Family Dollar, which has agreed to sell itself to smaller rival Dollar Tree (DLTR.O) for a lower cash-and-stock deal of $8.5 billion, rejected Dollar General's $9.1 billion all-cash bid saying the offer did not address anti-trust concerns. After being spurned twice, Dollar General, which offered to sell up to 1,500 stores and pay $500 million as a break-up fee if the deal failed to clear antitrust reviews, took its bid hostile and approached Family Dollar shareholders directly. On Oct. 1, Dollar General extended its tender offer to acquire Family Dollar shares for $80 a piece from Oct. 8 to end of this month.
