You would have to be living under a rock to think that grocery is a career anymore. This is no longer 1950 nor is it even 1980. I watch many people with more education than a grocery worker left out in the cold by companies now. It takes little to do many of the jobs in grocery. I would honestly say out of the 120 average that work in a store 25 are qualified to earn a living wage and benefits. How can I say this? I work there and know the competency level. The competition in this industry no longer supports the allowance of a career as a deli worker til you retire. There is just not the market share for the profits to do this. I tell the people whom I work with to go back to school. I am doing the same. The union lives under antiquated ideas and strategies. Mickey lives in the past as a big time union boss scraping off the perks for himself while calling the companies greedy. It is definitively time for change.
