I will just say anonymously that Publix in Florida will give out tons of food to the Harry Chapin Food Bank for "poor" people (read that as people ALREADY getting food stamps and all the free goodies given to them on the backs of the taxpayers.) If a Publix employee gets one bakery item on Christmas they are lucky. They throw out so much food, too!
Why don't they give the out-of-date food to their poor employees that work for years and receive little pay?? "Someone" I know who is a bagger makes $8.50/hour and has worked there 6 YEARS! You are going to tell me that you can't give that poor person food that you are going to throw away or give to people already filling their fat bellies on food stamps?? These are the working poor, many who do not qualify for welfare or food stamps because they make "too much money." This country is going down the sh#tter, thanks to greed politicians and banks who could give a *** Plus, they have the NERVE to give you a pin on your uniform stating "PLEASE, NO TIPPING", if you're a lowly bagger.
Many people WANT to tip. Unbelievable!!
I would say Publix should be sued for poor employee practices and abuse of their employees, but I do not want my friends to lose their jobs in this already God-forsaken job market. Sad...very sad.
Publix Pros: More organic please.
Publix Cons: Way they treat their employees.
