    no, blue laws forbade businesses from operating during those (usually religious) spans
    even if the demand existed for them to operate during blue law periods they could not
    if business finds that the rewards (profitability) of remaining open during blue law periods is greater than not operating during those times, be assured the businesses will hire the staff to open and operate. that IS the basic nature of business

    just read post 209. that said it much better than this post

    Sales is what creates profits, not cutting operating expenses. Without sales, it's impossible for a company to make money. Without operating expenses, it's also impossible for a company to make money. So why would any business chose to cut operating expenses at the cost of a reduction sales?
    Businesses do not have much control over their sales.

    a shortage of skilled workers have the advantage, they can demand it.....not sure that is as true now as a few decades ago...

    Sure they do. That's why they hire salespeople, and advertise, and have displays, and try to offer quality products at attractive prices. Any business can increase it's sales, as long as customers have a few bucks in their pockets. Demand is the only limiting factor that any business has, that's why our economy is demand driven (and not supply side driven).

    I got a buddy who works for a major consumer finance company, and he is basically a troubleshooter. If a branch isn't making enough loans, he will go to that branch and teach them how to get customers. He told me that he once went to a branch that basically had no business, and found the employees just sitting around waiting for customers to come in. When he asked them why they don't have customers, they just said "we dunno, I guess no one wants to borrow money". He told them that they needed to go get customers, and he took the branch manager with him to find customers. They put up signs in target neighborhoods, and even visited some retail electronics stores. At the electronics stores, he spoke with the managers and some of the sales staff, gave them a handful of business cards, and told them that when they had customers who didn't have the money to purchase, to refer the customers to his branch office. By the end of that first day, that location had made something like a dozen new loans, by the end of the week they had people waiting in line to borrow money.

    I could increase my sales if I got up off my lazy arse and made some sales calls instead of just sitting around picking the low hanging fruit.
