Let me just get right to the point:
Walmart is closing 63 Sam’s Club stores across the US as it moves in to ecommerce…
YOU NEED TO READ THIS…
Walmart is closing 63 Sam’s Club stores across the US, the company told Business Insider on Thursday afternoon, after reports of abrupt store closings began to emerge.
Sam’s Club has not said how many employees are losing their jobs. Each Sam’s Club warehouse employs about 175 people, meaning more than 11,000 people could be impacted.
In some cases, employees were not told their store had closed before showing up to work on Thursday. Those employees learned their store would be closing when they found the store’s doors locked and a notice announcing the closing, Sam’s Club workers told Business Insider. At some stores, employees were turned away by police officers.
NOW READ THIS…
Ten of the affected stores will be turned into e-commerce distribution centers, and employees of those stores will have the opportunity to reapply for positions at those locations, a Walmart official said.
Let me repeat the important part:
Ten of the affected stores will be turned into e-commerce distribution centers…
“Oh…but why would Wal-Mart be closing stores?” you ask. “I thought they were super-successful and growing??”
They just have less of a need for PEOPLE when they can AUTOMATE.
Did you catch that word…automate.
Yes. In other words, ECOMMERCE.
Sam’s Club doesn’t NEED to pay 11,000 workers. So they are getting rid of the them.
They don’t need you.
And before you start bitching about it being unfair, just know that it doesn’t matter…because they don’t care.
So if you think the ’40-year-career’ is going to take care of you…think again.
Robots have already cost millions of factory jobs across the nation.
Next up could be jobs at your local stores.
Between 6 million to 7.5 million existing jobs are at risk of being replaced over the course of the next 10 years by some form of automation, according to a new study this week from by financial services firm Cornerstone Capital Group.
That represents at least 38% of the current retail work force, which consists of 16 million workers. Retail could actually lose a greater proportion of jobs to automation than manufacturing has, according to the study.
Pull your head outta the sand. You KNOW this has been coming. It’s been creeping…and creeping…and creeping for years.
Oh sure, a percentage will be retrained and get new jobs. But that will benefit mostly younger workers (if it does at all).
Take yourself out of the job market. At the very least…partly.
Start an ecommerce or information marketing business (what I do) and control your damn destiny.
And to the ignorant naysayers who grovel ‘that’s a scam’…you you better get your head outta your ass before you’re left holding it.
The struggle is real…and about to get realer.
Will you be left holding the bag (with nothing in it)??
Who doesn't pal? If you have a rich Uncle, you're good to go. If not, then you better get real and realize that latest 'opportunity' on that Facebook group where you can make 300 bucks over and over for doing nothing is complete bullshit. ARE YOU READY TO GET REAL?? >> >> >> >>
