Thread regarding Giant Eagle layoffs

Bloomfield + Store closings

I used to work for GE in Cleveland in a leadership role several years ago and have close contacts still.

1) Giant eagle has bought Shur Save/IGA in Bloomfield

2) 2-3 stores will be closing in Pittsburgh, while keeping the pharmacies open.

For the last 30 plus years Giant Eagle has based its business on low wages. That’s how they built the empire they have. It’s only been the last few years they’ve raised wages and you see what that caused. Cut Cut Cut hours... And nobody applies at the stores.

So true about paying employees! It’s hilarious to attend these Foodbank Kickoffs only to hear them talking about those who suffer “food insecurity” and “poverty”, when they really mean to say “Giant Eagle Hourly Employees”!

We are basically asking the poor to help the poor! How ironic is that!

The big wigs don't care. They get their money. The stores (and non-management people at corporate) always get screwed.

PS. GE doesn't pay their employees enough to be able to shop at GE!
