Lowe’s has been a hot topic of discussion in the food and beverage world recently.
The online grocery retailer, which sells food, beverages, household supplies and other household goods, is facing scrutiny over its labor practices, and many consumer advocates are calling for changes to the company’s compensation structure and its labor policies.
Lowe’s is the third largest online retailer in the U.S., behind Amazon and Walmart.
The retailer said it has received an average of 3.5 million complaints each month since March, according to the National Retail Federation, and it has not taken any action to address those complaints.
The group said its workers are paid a minimum of $8.25 per hour and that it has an anti-discrimination policy that protects workers’ rights to form and form unions and the right to form non-union organizations.
Lowe�s spokeswoman, Andrea Smith, told HuffPost she would not comment on the specifics of Lowe�takes-a-wait-and-see stance.
However, Smith said the company has committed to improving its compensation and labor practices.
According to a March letter to the Senate Labor Committee, Lowe�res currently hiring more than 200 workers a week in its warehouse in Easton, Pennsylvania.
In that letter, the company said it will create a new salary scale and a new overtime rate to be paid to workers and would create a merit pay scheme that rewards employees with higher pay and better working conditions.
Lowe has faced complaints about its practices for years, with many employees saying they felt unsafe working under the company�s strict safety protocols, including a mandatory chain link fence, and the company denied that the fences were unsafe.
The letter said that Lowe�ll not have any additional employees working on the Easton warehouse, which is also home to Lowe�mall stores, as of March 31, 2018.
