Kroger employees are union whores and deserve this in spades.
YES, MANY Kroger employees (full time) are union. If we knew just how many of the 350,000 employees were union members, we would see just how much of an impact this will actually be. What this will likely do, is put more of a ‘pick-up-the-slack’ burden on the union members who in turn will revolt and go out on strike; and the vicious circle continues.
I find nothing wrong with private sector unions in companies that are not monopolies or in the too big to fail category.
The problem is with public unions who are in a monopoly situation and with unions that are in companies that are too big to fail because then they can blackmail the public for almost anything they want.
But private sector unions not in a monopoly and not too big to fail have a vested interest in having the company succeed and not fail. Bankruptcy is the ultimate check on union power here.
So I do not like the bashing of the Kroger unions here.
