Hero pay going bye bye

So the pandemic is still going on but this cheap ass company is ending the hero pay. Its time for that co ck sucker Rodney and other higher ups to take a pay cut. If we are required to wear masks then you are required to pay hero pay.

Agreed. If we are being forced to loose hero pay, then corporate should be forced loose their bonuses. And if they don't like it? Quit.

And it's not just Kroger workers, but Walmart, Whole Foods and Starbucks...

Do people really think that even during this pandemic, these businesses are SUFFERING??? Our business has been UP...WAAAAYYY UPPP!!! So, no one has an excuse to NOT offer the pay...

One of the articles quotes Kevin Garvey of UFCW Local 75...

"UFCW Local 75 president Kevin Garvey said the union will continue to pressure the company to provide bonus pay for as long as the pandemic goes on.

COVID-19 is not going away soon, he said. "Our members still have to work in the same conditions and deal with the same pressures. They are worth every penny of the $2.00 premium and the (latest) bonus.
