Employees Should Be Scared, but the Employers Should Fix That

Best Buy Is Worried About San Francisco Employees Quitting, Getting Traumatized Thanks To Frequent Thefts | The Daily Wire

Employers should do one of three things:

  1. If they can, they should move out of these areas.
  2. If they can’t move out, they should hire more security. Armed security.
  3. If they can’t do that, they should tell their employees that they are free to arm themselves, and they should put up signs warning looters that employees at the store may be carrying concealed weapons.

Best Buy chief executive Corie Barry is concerned that retail thefts in California stores will provoke employees to quit.

“These are traumatic experiences, and they are happening more and more across the country,” Barry told CNBC. She explained that San Francisco and other California cities represent “hot spots” for the thefts.

“When we talk about why there are so many people looking for other jobs or switching careers, this of course would be something that would play into my concerns for our people because, again, priority one is just human safety,” she said. “And it’s hard to deal with this potentially multiple times in one location.”

This is a failure of the cities. They need to police better, and they need to make it clear to potential criminals that if you get caught on one of these, that you’re going to be in prison for a long long time.
