Thread: Grocery Strike?

    Default Grocery Strike?



    Saw this:
    http://www.9news.com/news/article.as...5347&catid=339
    And went to do a couple weeks worth of shopping tonight. Figured I would avoid having to deal with the whole situation if at all possible.

    Just have to walk past some very cranky picketers. I am going to suggest to my jobless son that he go down the street to the Safeway and KS and pick up an application

    I'll cross the picket line but I'm not a fan of unions in general.

    Yes, I have been a union member in the past.

    I just figure that with 2 weeks of groceries that I won't have to side one way or the other. Gives me 2 weeks to decide who if anyone I want to side with.

    I thought about working at a store, but that deters me from really focusing on my career search. Don't want to get off track from my real goal. If I wasn't working on a career and just needed a job I would be all over it.

    I don't like unions, I was here in 87 when they went on strike last time... my now ex-wife was working as a checker with all the union dues they paid the best the union could do was get them a pay cut and less benefits..... unions just don't have the pull they used to and I really don't think that we need them anymore. Just a personal opinion from a paralegal student currently in an employment law class.

    I was fired from my last union job for instigating a wildcat strike when the company said we weren't getting the contracted cost of living raise. The union rep met with the owner of the company before talking to me. They negotiated my return at 30% of the pay I had been getting.

    Nice union support :rant:

    i'm sorry but what do they really have to strike over? how much do these people think they should be making to scan a barcode? or put a can of beans on the shelf?

    Ditto. I have put in more than my share of time in school. Still finding trouble getting a decent job. Maybe I should work at the grocery store?

    well when i got laid off from nextel back in 03' i had a mortgage and i worked 2 subways back to back to make a full time minimum wage. It made the bills and such but it was tight. I have never had to take from unemployment.

    I very much agree. Earn it. One thing I feel that is way too prevalent in society is the overblown sense of ENTITLEMENT many seem to have adopted.

    ive started over 3 times now and every time i have done better for myself. And i did this all on my own. Its hard but nothing is easy in life if its worth it. I grew up poor and damnit i am not going to live poor knowing i can do very well for myself. I did have family and friends help a little financially when i was out of work or not able to meet bills due to minimum wage work that i still did to support myself to an extent. I feel if i cant do for myself, how am i supposed to support a family someday.... failure is not an option in my book and i think there are way too many goddamn lazy people milking the system and society.

    It is a useless job anyway. You can scan your ***** faster at the self checkout. (and be outta there quicker)


    Unions these days are totally worthless. They take your money and don't stand up for you anyway. Besides, are the work conditions really that poor that grocery store workers need union representation?
