Target’s at Exterior Street in the Bronx has now instituted a policy that it’s customers will be forced to do self check outs. No cashiers will be at registers until 2 p.m. in the afternoon. Why? It gets crowded when they do have cashiers at the registers. Now the other little dig at the customers is this, it all those self check out registers work. Maybe less than half have a green light.
The cashiers are most likely working for minimum wage. They probably do t have health insurance, or a pension plan. So the company is saving money.
When I was leaving the store one customer was waiting for Target staff to unlock the wheels on her cart. He wasn’t by the door. The security person did t have the key to unlock her cart. Who knew where the staff was with the key.
Now, this Target is just about five or six blocks away from Yankee Stadium. Will they only man the store with cashiers at the registers when there is an early game, while making the community use the self check out at other times?
Is this a policy that runs throughout Target stores or just this one in particular?
Or is it that the Corporation feels that they are doing business in the Ghetto and that they can get away with this type of treatment when it co es to peopleof color?
They need to be called out on this. It’s an affront to both their customers and their staff. Which are equally being abused..
