I am going to make my comments based on 20 years of sales/management and as an owner in fields other than the hair business.
As a manger there is NO!! reason to demean another associate, period.
You and the other stylist DO have a voice, if constructed and delivered in a uniform assessment of the situation that the owner is not managing in the best interest of the salon As a group there is more weight and HOPEFULLY the owner will listen to everyones concers or issues.
As a group you do have more power but ultimately if the owner does not care...ALL of you will be seritipously put to more scrutiny.
To speak or not to speak!!!! Tough call for most but I believe in what I stand for and that is not letting people get run over by BASTARDS.
