Default Big Trouble for Big Company

Look up "Demoulas Market Basket" They're a pretty big regional grocery chain, that was sort of hostly taken over by the CEO's cousin. The courts backed the takeover. Well, the ousted CEO was beloved by ALL the employee's, and they so have his back. The new guard is just greedy, and are now threatening the employees with their jobs. Funny (and unusual) thing; the CUSTOMERS have the EMPLOYEES backs! I was there today after work when it's normally packed. There was almost no one there! The employees are out by the road with HONK! signs, and a lot of people are. The chain is bleeding about 10 million a day, and there are some stores that can't make payroll. So, the new guard is shooting themselves in the foot, to day the least. Interesting.

What's also interesting is that the shelves are pretty bare. No meat, bakery, dairy. The company's trucking branch is shut down. The only reason there is anything in the store is that no one is going there. I have no doubt that the place would be totally cleaned out if people were.

It's food for thought, and kind of disconcerting. This is the second time this year that has been show to us locally in 2 different grocery stores. (The other closed all their NH stores).

Generally the courts are going to side with what's legal... not always what is right.

Really, the court has not a lot to do with this. It's more about a family fight. And it's also about their customers and employees standing up and clearly stating what they want, and then actually DOING it. Which is unusual nowadays. It's what needs to be done with the Feds on a larger scale.

The consumer has the most power in this and most situation like this. I love it when we step up and use something other than jaw-wagging to display our disapproval. The big shots in industry never want us to realize our potential, when 10% margins can mean billions or bankruptcy, it doesnt take much to shake them up or shut them down. BTW, most of our elections as of late have been decided in single digit percentages.

Lessons learned should include us realizing that anyone that takes a stand violating our rights or sensibilities can be nullified if we work together. Like Costa and a few of his Holly weird friends, if you step over the line, you and anyone that supports you dont need to profit from a single penny of my earnings or my vote...

Thanks.
