Understaffed and corporations not doing anything about it unless the law is changed!!

Pharmacies are understaffed and pharmacists are overworked and all corporations care about is business and productions but neglect hiring sufficient staff nor increasing pharmacy technician pay despite the rigorous training and work put into registering for the tech in training program. Then they quit after all the training is done and they are a licensed technician because the pay is not competitive enough. The law needs to change to provide better staffing and increase technician pay.
