#askSwell | Walgreens pharmacists and workers walking off the job today! #ladyfi

So that means that I have to get medication for that. And every year they get the same promises. Every year, people put a Band Aid on the problem for them. They just want better working conditions. Can you blame them? I mean, I'm engaged. I'm listening. I want to know what's going on. Because the people that fill my prescriptions, I don't want them to be too tired and get it wrong. So we really need to take a look at this

I saw a couple of people talk to them like they're just scum, and it's not pleasant, it's not cool. People need a reality check. And although I would have hated to be stuck without the ability to get the prescription for my fiance yesterday, it's hard to say. Like, I support it, I understand it. It makes sense. I think people need to wake up in reality check

They're frustrated and overworked, probably underpaid, but more so, they're just frustrated with the amount that they have to do, according to what I read. And I do want them to get it together. Because I cannot imagine going without my medication. Or my children's. Or anyone, for that matter. And I thoroughly agree with you. People talk to Walgreens employees like they've lost their freaking mind, like they have no politeness

So I called the pharmacist answers, and she says, oh, wait, I see a note off to the side where this person has taken the note about your request. However, she was like, I apologize. Unfortunately, I don't believe this person ever completed the task. So she was like, I'm on it right now. I'm going to make the call to that other pharmacy and have your prescription forward it to us

Well, I don't know about the Walgreens walk off. Let me see, because I am commenting right now, and I should have followed it, but I was sick the other day, so, no, I don't see anything about Portland. Walgreens are impacted by the national walkout, so I guess they did. They had a nationwide strike, and I don't know if they're still on strike, but I'll try to keep you guys updated. All right, thank you so much

I said I was going to keep you guys abreast as to what has happened. They did walk off, but I guess it just comes down to more staff and better pay. Of the 30,000 retail pharmacy technicians in the United States, about 7500 of those are open. So the pharmacists, they need more pharmacists and then they need more pharmacy technicians. And the pay is just not right. It needs to be brought up to standards

I heard you mention that you were not feeling well. I hope you are feeling better or on the road to recovery

You. Thank you so much. Yeah, this cold has got me down it's, coughing, sneezing, just, you know, the works. But anyway, I feel a little bit better today. I'm able to breathe a little bit better today. And then trying to control my sugar is a big thing too. But thank you for saying that. I really appreciate that. That was so nice
