((HUNTER SCOTT/SHOPPER: ITS ACTUALLY A LOT MORE EFFICIENT, QUICKER, SMALLER LINES, MORE HELP.))

Indeed more help may be the reason why.
In the last few years, there have been too many job openings and not enough people to fill them.
Thats led to longer lines and shorter tempers.
But this year, help is on its way.
[SOT 15:03:00]

((JUSTIN McLEOD/REPORTING: IN THE PAST, SOME STORES HAVE HAD TO OFFER INCENTIVES JUST TO GET APPLICANTS IN THE DOOR. THEY DID GIFT CERTIFICATES EVEN SIGNING BONUSES. THIS YEAR YOU'LL SEE LESS OF THAT BUT ONE THING THAT DOES REMAIN THE SAME IS A COMPETITIVE STARTING WAGE.))

Wal-mart recently raised their starting wage.
And now turnover is down nearly forty percent.
K-mart also starts above minimum wage.

[Runs= 14]
[OUT Q=aspect of it]


Better service leads to more happier returns.
But remember you eventually, you have to pay for all those presents you buy.
So if your credit card is maxed out, you might want to consider a temporary job.
That would guarantee yourself and store managers a happy holiday.

Virginia governors have been taking office for almost four hundred years.
The first actually elected by the people was Joseph Johnson in 1851, who had a private ceremony performed by a justice of the peace.
But they've gotten flashier.
So as Virginia gears up for its latest inauguration, the Library of Virginia decided to look back.

That's the way we do it now.
Library of Virginia researcher Brent Tarter is asked a barrage of questions every four years, inspiring him to find some new facts this time.
Like, this isn't how Virginia's always done it.
Before the end of the 19th century:
[sot tape 16:08:19 ]

((BRENT TARTER/LIBRARY OF VIRGINIA: NEW GOVERNOR CAME TO TOWN, SIGNED AN OATH OF OFFICE, AND WENT TO WORK. THERE WAS NO CEREMONY, NO PARADE, NO NOTHING. DIDN'T EVEN GET MENTIONED IN THE NEWSPAPER.))
[runs= 09]


The first inaugural speech was a whopper, at more than 45 minutes in length.
That was Governor William "Extra Billy" Smith's speech in 1864.
This is a rare early outdoor ceremony -- Frederick Holliday in 1878.
They didn't do parades like James Price's in 1934, until the 1890s.
The first ball was in 1886... a tradition begun by Fitzhugh Lee, but NOT done again until groovy 1970, when Linwood Holton became Virginia's first modern Republican governor.
The Library can't explain the significance of the V-8 cans.
The first broadcast on radio and amplified for the crowd was Harry Flood Byrd's in 1926.
In 1946, new Governor Colgate Darden actually drove his own car home to Norfolk.
Amidst all the pomp and circumstance, there have been such human moments, one observed wryly in 1982 by Chuck Robb.

The inauguration of Doug Wilder in 1990 was an all-new spectacle.
Crowds that had numbered at 10 or 15 thousand in years past swelled to 30 thousand.
[sot tape 16:11:49 ]

((BRENT TARTER/LIBRARY OF VIRGINIA: I THINK WILDER'S WAS BY THE FAR THE MOST WIDELY ATTENDED INAUGURATION. IT WAS AN HISTORIC EVENT. THAT FIRST CAN NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.))

The election of the grandson of slaves made Virginia unique among American states as the only still to elect an African-American governor.

((GOV. DOUG WILDER: SO THAT I CAN SAY TO YOU TODAY THAT I AM A SON OF VIRGINIA! THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.))

After 12 years of Democratic rule, Republican George Allen set a revolutionary tone -- making his inauguration not only the coldest recorded temperature in Virginia inaugural history... but pretty cold in tone.
[sot tape 94-3 31:33 ]
