Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 19, 2017

Pharmacy practice is increasingly getting stressful and there is more pressure on Pharmacists to deliver more services and to be more productive. I just have some concerns regarding future of our profession: 1- we want to have rest time and break that is fair but then at that time the dispensary can not remain open. in this case corporations that invest in drug store business would look to save the loss and soon we are going to have some kind of internet or remote operating pharmacies. so there would be job loss and lost opportunity for our profession. 2- if pharmacist takes 1/2-1 hour break time, then pharmacy manager or owner needs to stay or come back to give break to the pharmacist. i am not sure if they want to do that, so what they do they cut Pharmacist's hours to the hours so pharmacist is not entitled to the break. again job loss. 3- i agree with minimum wages and holiday pay as hard working pharmacists deserve better and fair treatment.
