Seattle Goodwill Industries
October 28, 2011

Just thought I would pass along this article from MSN money. The lady who moderates the blog, lives in Seattle. http://blogs.moneycentral.msn.com/smartspending/archive/2009/03/24/are-thrift-stores-now-overpriced.aspx?PageIndex=3 You REALLY need to examine the comments section - I thought I would validate this comment by saying....as a former employee of Seattle Goodwill this comment is very insightful and completely accurate! Seattle Goodwill abuses its salaried staff by making them work 60 to 80 hours a week - pays the people who price merchandise minim wage while expecting them to 'produce' (price & stock) outrageous amounts of donations which are calculated down to the SECOND!!!!! All of this while retaliating against individuals who have workplace injuries or take FMLA time off to care for their families. Someone should really look into how much this "Non-Profit" is paying out in settlements to keep people quiet.
