    Thumbs up Sears Email

    I HOPE you have all seen the reports about how Sears is treating its reservist employees who are called up? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up.

    Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years. I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution.

    I suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves.

    Pass it on.
    According to snopes.com and ESGR, this one is true!

    Actually there are a number of companies going above and beyond for reservists; here's the list:

    Here is another list with links to the company websites:

    We encourage you to follow these links, tell the employers you support them and, if appropriate, support the employers by buying their products or services.

    Jo,
    I noticed that my company is not listed, but we are paying the difference to our associates, too.

    That's great to hear Cindy!

    I heard a number of the troops are worried about loved ones at home who require frequent medical care and prescriptions.
