I've read many comments on here, but none seem to touch on the reason it all started. I work for Kroger myself, but I also own 2 small business, and see what many cannot. A lot of you understand, or are at least aware of, something called 'versus... —  read more

Is this true?

Corporate cuts are coming in 2020. 15% reduction in head count. Where did this info come from? Is this just somebody guessing or is it based on something concrete? Any more info would be appreciated.
