For Aldi it's normal. Aldi and Costco were light years ahead in the wages grocers pay employees.
/White Castle did the same in the restaurant business

That's cool.  They have to deal with so many of the unwashed on a daily basis.

dagoonite: Aldis is one of those places that I love to go to, but I hate being there.  Ours is a little run down and showing its age.  It's a hassle in there, and I feel judged the entire time.  But they recently hired a cashier who can smile and chat without being any slower, and when nobody's at her lane she's actively dusting, so that alone makes going there better than Walmart.



the ONLY thing i don't like about Aldi is that they tend to understaff.  this makes the staff who is there run around like chickens with their heads cut off.  they expect too much out of them.  they are not robots.   not yet anyway.

Aldi needs to focus more on keeping their stores staffed because, in the long haul, that will hurt them.   and it will lower their turnover rate too.

Good on them. Every now and again not every corporation behaves like penny-shaving bastards.

CS,B:

Did some contract nerd work for the company that more or less owns every franchise gym in North America, and they had a blood drive.

Asked my "report-to" if I could sign out for an hour and donate blood. He said to report it as working time. And I was expensive! Momentarily restored my faith in humanity.

I like Aldi too. I have not been able to go since March, but looking forward to going back. They have stuff you can't get anywhere else. I know that it has a reputation of being for "poor people", but ours will have a combination of 1997 mini vans and  Mercedes and Audi parked outside.

I love ALDI. Went to my first, while in Australia. We shop whenever we're in a city that has one.

Meanwhile, Whole Foods and Amazon employees get t-shirts, cut hours, and anti-union propaganda.

the only thing dumb working class/middle class murcans can think about is that poor lazy sit at home stock owner and his free capital gains money at 15% tax rate.

the Labor that puts value into those stocks matters not in Murca.


Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

unwashed, smart enough to buy real food from Europe over the processed food laden with sugar, etc, from Murca.

Aunt Eazy loves Aldi. I'm too snobbish to want to go.

But, they have the fastest checkers/cashiers I have ever seen.
