Food 4 Less Workers Considering Strike
Employees at Food 4 Less, a grocery chain owned by Kroger, are threatening to walk off the job, reports the OC Register.
The workers are reportedly angry about claims that workers at Ralph's, which is also owned by Kroger, make up to $3 more an hour than they do. The union has been in talks with Kroger, and they're expected to pick back up towards the end of the month.
In the meantime, Kroger is issuing such believable statements as this:
“We will continue to work with union leadership to negotiate a contract...Our employees do not want a strike and they look forward to serving customers in our stores throughout the holiday season."
