Aw, the memories. The last time there was a grocery workers strike/lockout was a disaster. It lasted for 20 weeks with the big three (Vons, Ralphs, Albertsons) picketed.
The United Food and Commercial Workers Union is holding strike votes today. A strike is likely because the stores are playing hardball using a lead cannonball. The businesses want a strike because they want to crush union workers like insects. Scabs are being hired while I type this. It is a threat to public health to have temporary scabs handling the food supply. People will get sick, some will die.
Of course, I will not cross a picket line. Ever. Period. Double exclamation point!! Nor will I shop at Walmart. Triple exclamation point!!!
