No one is safe, the tech teams are baiting each other and talking behind each others backs. So much so that Kroger is getting rid of everything but SHIPT.

Of course. They have to get rid of higher paid employees and replace them with cheap labor. If they replace them at all.

In our division. Walmart and target's starting pay is $15 an hour. Our top pay for all purpose clerks is less than that.
Right now Kroger is negotiating an new contract with the union. No increase in pay for anyone not at top pay. Top paid clerks will get 25 cent raise for 3 years. Might give a bonus check/gift card one year of the contract instead of raise. Clerk's health benefits cost triple with reduced coverage. Number of hours to get benefits go from 20 to 29. Benefits hours are on worked hours only. Examples...
Take time off to be with a new baby. No benefits the next month.
Take two weeks vacation in the same month. No benefits.
Take loa.. no benefits.
Want to stay anyway. Can work hard get promoted to assistant manager or store manager. Always have the possibility to get laid off.
Watch rodney cut all the labor out of the stores.
I tell everyone who asks. Not to work for Kroger. Period!

Better start getting use to saying, "Would you like fries with that?"
