not enough help at the pharmacy- and this endanger patient safety

There is never enough help at the pharmacy. they always cut hours at the pharmacy, keep pharmacy clerk and tech at minimum wage. and give pharmacist endless task so there is no time to train anyone new. tons of vaccine quotes, and task to do but not enough help. they do not even treat the pharmacist as a human being because no lunch or break or bathroom break. and this pharmacist is supposed to be checking every single prescription with 100% accuracy. could you do that? coming early and staying after 12 hours shift- isn't enough time to finish all task- because there is always something to do at the pharmacy. corporate doesn't care about pharmacist and treat them as slaves to make money for corporate.
