What will they think of next?

Well I don't get out much, except for the frequent trip to Target but we have been flooded with emails from self proclaimed Slave To Target correspondants all over the country who want to tell us what is up in the world.

This is the latest in "what will Target do next" chatter. Hmm gives me an idea for another t-shirt- "what would Target do?". On that note have you ordered your Red Cart Romance tee yet? I surely did and its right here on my fabu body as we speak, er well um, type.

So getting back to my story- Jennifer from wherever she lives, USA writes in that we have to tell you about Target branded photo booths popping up in select locations around the country. I think this is a fine idea and when one comes to my town I am surely going to have a photo sesh.

Where would we be without camera phones? Thanks Jennifer for taking this pic and sending it in!


  • Do you know what stores in the US have these photo booths?!?! How exciting that I don't have to attend a fair to use a fun photobooth!!!

  • cannot believe someone would have an I love Target website. This company has a horrible human rights record. My husband worked for their distribution center for 5 years, and finally quit after being treated like so much disposable garbage.
    Cases in Point
    1. Every employee is required to see the company nurse before they can leave work for illness. However the company nurse only works Monday-Friday, with no weekends. There is no one that a person working the weekend shift can see to have an excused leave from work. I don't think it would scratch Target's profit margin to employ an additional nurse for the weekend shift.
    2. At the particular plant my husband worked at in Cedar Falls, Iowa there was a water main break. There was not running water for drinking or sanitation for more than 6 hours, yet Target forced its' employees to keep working in 90 degree weather. I was appalled this could even happen in the United States.
    3. They do not allow any kind of personal correspondence within their buildings or parking lot, for fear of organized labor unions(which they desperately need). This means if you want to give your co-worker Sally a sympathy card because her kid died, YOU CAN'T. Unless you want to be fired.
    4. At the retail stores, the starting wage for employees is $6.15. A person could not buy health insurance AND feed himself Top Ramen with this wage. But at least you can buy your plastic Isaac Mizrahi shoes for 10 cents cheaper.
    And these are just minor incidences I can recall from my husband's experience with the "Bullseye".
    So please, find another company to worship. Companies like this are bad for the American work force. And I realize most of you won't give a damn, because you and your husband both work white-collar jobs, but some don't. And you support a business that are treating your fellow Americans like trash.
