I wonder, would some of their women employees, say that they're pregnant, when they're not? Then they'd get the $4,000 payment, and go on a vacation, in a State where abortions are still legal.
Maybe someone should bring up that question to the Media?
Kroger has been peeing in my corn flakes figuratively speaking for about a year now. With what they've done to family and their social agenda. The bad news is that they are only one of 3 chains that are a reasonable distance away to get to regularly. The others being a very poorly/narrowly chosen inventory and high priced IGA and the other being an often out of stock Walmart. Going farther afield, I can find a Food Lion and an Aldi, but those are inconveniently placed being 45 minutes away or more.
I don't count dollar stores except for poor quality emergency essentials when I must.
I miss living in Northeastern WI where I often had 6-9 different chains fighting for my business, all excellently stocked.
