Well I did hear that because of the new healthcare initiative and the fact that there are too many pharmacists coming out of schools all of the major chains (Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc) are going to seriously be cutting back the number of stores in the next two years. We're looking at a severe surplus of pharmacists with the average unemployment rate nearing 20% by the end of 2012.

Well I went to get simple ear drops for my swimmer's ear yesterday and I was charged 100-something dollars for it at the pharmacy. I got mad and didn't pay it. Stupid health insurance.
