⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
They were the first ones in the area to really fight back against the unions. They had union emplyoees.. But they didn't have any baggers, because they didn't want to pay the union bagger wages. So the customers all had to bag their own groceries. They left our market after a few years...
But they were quickly replaced by stores opening without any unions.. that could keep costs lower. The non-union stores kept taking market share from the 2 dominant (named in the prior post) until Dominicks tried to get a new contract with the union 5 years ago or so.. The union wouldn't cooperate.. Dominicks kept looking for a buyer... no one was interested due to the union problems and costs... and finally they closed right after Christmas. Jewel is really on the ropes too.. Even though my wife currently works there.

I used to walk into Dominicks for a specific item, just to walk out empty handed shaking my head at their costs. They had little choice on the cost issue.. They had a lot of people they had to pay.
