Fred Meyer - I just can't shop there anymore

Although there are so many reasons to shop at Fred Meyer, there is an even greater reason to stay away and that is their horrible treatment of their employees. When I first heard about this problem, I stopped going there - maybe two or three months ago. FM has opened itself up to a class action - so it's their policy - that doesn't make it ethical or moral I applaud the local union for taking a stand and not letting this just fall away. Sue the pants off these crooks and let that 70 year old retire on the settlement.
