Oh,. My Lord,, the stories I could tell you about the grocery industry, from the baggers (Courtesy Clerk) to midnight stocking, management and beyond. Every time we negotiated more money in a union contract, the price of groceries increased within 2 months.

A have hundreds of fun stories. One time I was stocking very early in the morning, and this Asian lady was piling all the canned dog food into her cart. Something just didn’t look right about it, so I approached her and asked if I could help. She did not know hardly any English, and declined my assistance. Something told me to keep trying to help. So... What do you see on a can of peas or corn? You see exactly what is in the can, peas or corn. What is on the label of a can of dogfood?? The head of a dog. The Asian lady thought she was buying canned dog. When I tried to relate to her what was actually inside those cans, she acted disgusted and left the store. I have many more stories to tell later.

No mandate now so you can get by without any insurance at all. My wife and I are both 65 and have had no healthcare insurance since January 1st 2014 and we’ve saved an incredible amount of money.

Yep. Rank and file outside not getting paid, etc. leadership tells them “we support you” and goes back to their nice houses and 6 figure salaries that the rank and file payed for.

Exactly, and its why we need blue-collar apprentices and workers. We are worth our weight in gold.
