Fry’s Electronics and Safeway stores are hiring

Thousands of Fry’s and Safeway employees are threatening to strike this Friday, so Fry’s and Safeway stores are hiring in anticipation of the strike.  It’s probably not the best time for any employee to go on strike, no matter what the reason, because quite simply they will have workers doing the job and won’t be in a hurry to negotiate with the strikers. 

The unemployment rate is at a high this country hasn’t seen since 1983 and is only expected to rise over the next year.  The current national rate employment rate is 10.2%. 

Picket lines are anticipated the next time you go to Fry’s or Safeway stores, and the employers aren’t taking it sitting down.  They have taken out full-page ads stating they are looking to hire thousands of temporary workers.

13,000 workers plan to strike on Friday over healthcare costs for new employees. A grocery store worker averages $20,000 a year, and Fry’s and Safeway are asking new employees to pay up to $2,000 of that money for their healthcare, the union stated that is unacceptable.

Temporary workers should expect to get about $9.50 an hour and they are looking for clerks, stockers, meat cutters, and baggers.
