Many people have to work 2 & 3 jobs just to stay above water Abercrombie & Fitch doesn't have to pitch in to help out. Nor do they have to engage in this practice!
Thousands of Abercrombie & Fitch workers are petitioning against the company's "unfair" scheduling practices.
According to a Change.org petition:
"Bintou Kamara, a cashier at Abercrombie & FitchÃ¢ÂÂs flagship New York City store, is urging the company to stop Ã¢ÂÂon-callÃ¢ÂÂ shift scheduling, a practice that mandates an employee be available to work despite often not being asked to work for the shift. Kamara says this makes it difficult for workers like her to make ends meet.
Ã¢ÂÂWe arenÃ¢ÂÂt getting enough hours,Ã¢ÂÂ said Kamara, who started the petition on Change.org. Ã¢ÂÂAbercrombie gives us more call-in shifts than regular hours. We have to be available for on-call shifts, get ready for work, and then call in with no guarantee that weÃ¢ÂÂll even work. These on-call shifts make it difficult for us to have another job, go to school, or to arrange for child care.Ã¢ÂÂ'
Kamara has gathered 2,000 signatures in less than a week. They're also planning a protest at the company's flagship store in New York City.
This isn't the first time that Abercrombie employees have publicly campaigned against the retailer. Abercrombie has been accused of putting too much emphasis on appearance and discriminating against people who aren't physically attractive.
