The Softer Side of Sears*

These days, it's tough to find companies that share your values. But this holiday season, FRC is catching some retailers in the act of doing good. At Sears, they're giving back to the community by supporting our troops. By law, employers are required to hold jobs open for any military personnel who are called up for duty. Sears is doing our soldiers one better. To protect their workers from taking a pay cut and losing their benefits when they leave for the front lines, Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits-including medical insurance and bonus programs. A Sears Customer Service rep said, "[We] regard service to our country as one of the greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear." We salute Sears and other corporations who make their own sacrifices on behalf of America's bravest.

That's awesome! I've always liked Sears...hell any store that has power tools about 20 feet from Golf Clubs and weight benches gives any true red-blooded male the shivers. And if you stand at the right spot in the sporting good section you can point your wife to which lacy thing you want her to buy :D

I especially like this news, because I refuse to give Wal-Mart another nickel, for as long as I live.
