 The pay is fine. ASSociates are already making top dollar for doing hardly nothing.

And no way to get a raise. Work harder than others? Same pay. Started years before them? Same pay.

Well, well. Looks like the ASScociate troll decided to try to crawl out from under the bridge. Or got kicked out. And you would know best about doing nothing since you are nothing.

I'm sure this is going to be a post that starts debate........

A CEO should make MILLIONS, because they are in charge of the company. A worker should make whatever wage is in line with other retailers, etc. are in their area. If consumers want retailers, etc. to pay more, then they shouldn't worry about price and tell organization they will pay more for the goods and services. If wages are a real concern, why hasn't the local government, state government or federal government raise the min. wage?

I'm not saying workers shouldn't make a living wage, I'm saying calling one company out for paying the "going rate" is kind of BS. Why hasn't people looked past wages to see what the real issue is? Home prices in my area have risen 20% in the last year in my area, causing an increase in taxed, insurance and everything else associated with housing prices. Yes, prices increase, but people can't like one thing, and hate the side effects.

Example:
If China is a threat, why does the US continue to buy so much product from China? Why isn't "BUY US" being screamed, because its more expensive, and while everyone wants big paychecks, they want the cheapest goods and services they can find.

Summary for those who can't be bothered to watch random-ass youtube videos that aren't even hyperlinked:

Video 1:

"Will you have enough money to support yourself after you retire based on the wages and benefits you receive from Kroger?

92% say no.

The CEO wage has more than doubled in a decade to $23 million while his workers are engaged in economic Hunger Games.

Allegedly, the average Kroger worker is making $17/hour."

That's weird, right?  Pretty much everyone in a store is within a couple dollars of minimum wage unless they are a geezer with some old-school gravy contract.  If that figure is correct, I knew that corporate and executive pay was absurd but I had no idea it was so goddamned horrifyingly high.

"Two thirds of Kroger workers are living in poverty and 14% are homeless."

Poverty?  Sure.  I feel like I'm the only employee who doesn't have an EBT card.  I probably should apply for one.

One of my favorite coworkers (who is hopefully in her 50's) was telling me about her son's employment at McDonald's.  Not only is he making more money than she is, but he's happier and actually enjoys his job.  I can't even imagine not struggling with alcoholism and depression and bill paying every single day.

14% homeless?  ****.  My store is ghetto and I don't think we've actually had a homeless employee for at least a few years.  The last homeless employee I know of was a deli employee who resembled a particularly unkempt version of Bubbles from "Trailer Park Boys".  He lived behind the dumpster at the gas station across the street until a regular income allowed his drug problem to spiral out of control.  Again.

I'm too drunk to bother with the second video.

A good demonstration of your native language. What is it called? Trollish? Trollese? And the limited use of only two words shows the low level of your intelligence.

 

Another sad, smelly, lazy ASSociate

Again, great description of yourself. 

 

And it took you a long time to come up with so few words. Again, such low intelligence is shown.

 Have you considered not throwing away so much money on alcohol?

Remember, most Department Leads and Assistants at $19+, topped out associates are $17+. Oh...if you ask anyone in any industry they will always say they are underpaid. Also, so its a companies job to give workers a living wage, healthcare insurance, retirement, plenty of time off, work life balance, educations funds and basically everything else in the world? Next thing you know, everyone will be asking why companies don't provide housing, childcare, transportation and cookies to everyone!

While this might not be a popular statement, you do have a choice on where you work.

SO SAD. This post is a great example of why everybody is leaving this forum and going over to post on (or read) the Reddit.com Kroger page, where there is still (at least) a tiny mediocre bit of intelligence left.        Seems like the only bodies left here are scammers, spammers, and trolls.

 

SO SAD. And this website COULD potentially be of such great help and advantage to all Kroger employees.

 So you're at the point where you're amused by your own anger and you can't get enough of it. Perhaps you should seek psychiatric help.
