I'd say that it happens regularly, but as a percentage it would be rare.

I have had the same cashiers at Walgreens for the last ten to fifteen years. You know why? Because Walgreens has health insurance. These women work there, a job that requires you to stand whether it is necessary or not, with aching backs and feet, because they need health insurance.
