This Is Interesting

We often hear about the toll that shoplifting takes on retail stores - it can cost them tons in profits and force them to raise the price on items that us honest folks want to buy.

Well, Gawker is reporting on a study done on shoplifting, and it turns out that the help who work in the stores are the biggest culprits. The study found out that "larcenous employees averaged $1,890 in theft, compared with $438 for shoplifters."

You can click the ink above to hit up the site and follow Gawker's leads to the original story, but Gawkers language is a little raw and not for kids.
