Best Buy lays off 5,000 full-time employees, to replace them with 2,000 part-time workers
The company said it cut the jobs because more shoppers are choosing to buy online instead of coming inside its stores. Best Buy said it will replace the 5,000 full-time employees with 2,000 part-time workers. A group of workers has posted an online petition calling for Best Buy to compensate employees for lost wages related to cuts. About 792 of the nearly 4,000 signatures were from Best Buy workers, said Shannon Fulfs, the petition organizer who works at a Best Buy in the Omaha, Nebraska area. Best Buy shares fell nearly 6% to $107.05 in morning trading Thursday.
These kitchen items from Amazon I actually use in my own kitchen
You can get them all on Amazon, and since it’s Prime Day, why not treat yourself to something special for your kitchen? Instant Pots are insanely popular, so if you already have one, you know just how versatile this kitchen appliance can be. It’s really great for steaming veggies, too. Really nice Dutch ovens can get really expensive, but this one on Amazon is a reasonable price, and it’s a great quality. Having both of these items in your kitchen will be great additions.
