No sympathy to this horrible leftist.
In the Soviet Union he would have been shot.
For every action there is a reaction. :-)
Bernie Sanders.....paging the new millionaire socialist, Bernie Sanders. Help needed by a striking comrade.
Backstory, 31k grocery workers went on strike, citing increasing Insurance costs as one of the major reasons. Just three days they freak out that they can’t pay rent. Maybe they could ask their union bosses who make 6 figures off their union dies to help a fellow “union sister” out, right?
why don’t they get another job?
Silly question, but why are the names blocked out?
Fakebook is public, right?
So,....not Phil Mickelson.
What sane hiring manager would employ a striking retail employee looking for another retail job? The know that 1)this person is pro-union and 2) will probably no-call-no-show the second the strike is settled.
Learn to code!
I read they wanted the employees to pay an extra $5 or $10 a Week for their Health Insurance.
Obamacare cost us at least $50,000 (so far). I’m not getting any sympathy from the Unions.
I work in the grocery industry I pay $7.00 a week for my PPO full coverage medical insurance ANYONE complaining about having to pay an extra $10.00 a week needs to wake up and smell the coffee!!! GIVE ME A DAMN BREAK!!! If the Union even tries to put us on strike I WILL cross the line and park my car else where!!! I HATE unions!!!
IIRC, it was $3-5/week increase and they haven’t had ANY increase in the last 3, possibly 6 years.
Have a nice big bite out of your reality sammich.
It never crossed my mind that this was a "career" job. Just a job for some kid to get a foot in the door in the working world and some pocket money while going to school. Anybody making a career in a supermarket was either going into management or learning a trade (like butcher).
I would have cashiered as well but back then, only girls were expected to do it. In fact, that was all girls ever did in a supermarket back then and the reason given was that they were "more honest and trustworthy" than the boys and thus could be trusted with handling money.
These were the 1970s - back when you could say things like that and not get hit with lawsuits and bad publicity.
I remember one boy (very effeminate) wanted to cashier and management was in a pickle with regard to what he should wear as they were very uptight with their dress codes at the time. At the time, the girls at the registers all wore pink jackets and the boys (doing everything else) wore blue jackets. Management wore deep red jackets. It must have been considered unthinkable to have a "blue jacket" running a register so the one boy was issued a managers red jacket to cashier with. Though I think the kid would have happily worn pink if he was allowed.
