    Union employees are underpaid and over worked. Corporate management is absent and constantly pushing for more with no reward. Management is taken advantage of and it shows in the appearance of the stores. The branches are understaffed and employees lack real training. Unfortunately, it's not only the employees who are being abused. The customers are suffering because of selfishness of corporate management.
