Safeway Fires 6,000 and the Employees Retaliate!

Safeway acquired Dominck's grocery chain and promptly shuttered a whopping 72 grocery stores resulting in 6,000 jobs lost. Their excuse was that these grocery stores served "low profit margin geographical locations".

In other words, Safeway doesn't want to offer grocery access to poor people.

In response, the workers made an outrageously creative video thanking Safeway for their unbridled greed. Then Safeway retaliated against the video's creator by suspending him from his job --- on the same day he would be fired anyway!

AWESOME VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The full article is here with the YouTube video at the Economic Populist.

Sadly though, now 6,000 more Americans will only have 6 months to find another job --- or they are toast.
