Yup.

My mom worked for over 20 years as a department manager at Nordstroms and Macys. She was mentioning that there is now a shortage of CS people in retail. Either people don't want to risk of being in public or the unemployment pays better than what they would be paid to work.

There is also a growing trend of restaurant servers moving into retail has the shut downs have made that line of work uncertain.

TRUTH. Had a very similar experience at a retailer recently.

It royally pisses me off seeing businesses blatantly slash operating costs (staffing, maintenance) under the guise of the pandemic. They then wonder why B&M retail is dying? Why would I make a trip out to the store when I can get superior customer service from the convenience of my home? And superior selection?

To expand on that a bit, it's moreso a piss off when companies use the pandemic as an excuse/crutch for anything or everything negative. Even when it really isn't relevant.

A better example: My insurance company does all of their business online or over the phone. Wait times are usually non-existent to speak with an agent. Pandemic hits and boom -- 1 hour plus wait times consistently. Recorded message indicates "due to these challenging times, wait times are longer than normal." Why? What about your business model has changed? Pretty much every call centre agent in Canada is working from home now?
