Forever 21 is coming under fire after a letter sent to employees was leaked online. The
letter states that Forever 21 is demoting a number of full-time, non-management employees to part-time positions. Those positions include stock associates, sales associates, cashiers and others. The letter states that the demoted employees will no longer receive health benefits and that their regular schedule will not exceed 29.5 hours per week. This has caused a social media uproar, with thousands calling for a boycott of the store. Forever 21 released a statement via Facebook saying the realignment is in no way related to the Affordable Care Act. Forever 21 operates 480 stores nationwide, including one location in Crossgates Mall.

About Crista Leigh
I used to be "The Rock Goddess" on the local affiliate of a nationally syndicated morning show. I spent my nights hanging out with band members at local concert venues, DJing and MCing various booze-filled events, and wearing outfits that involved more studs and spikes than could be found in every combined circa-1999 Hot Topic.
Now, I'm the "Keto Goddess," helping you navigate this way of eating that has changed my life.
Doesn't really have quite the same ring, does it?
