Stop & Shop is a massive corporation that is probably second only to Dunkin’ Donuts in ubiquity here in New England. Often there’s a Dunkin’ inside the Stop & Shops. What makes those brands stand-ins for our region isn’t their corporate boards and the profits they shovel to shareholders, it’s their employees. They deserve everything and more than what their asking for.
Their strike is now entering its second week and in addition to not crossing picket lines, the employees can use all the support they can get.
I hope they prevail soon. I have to travel all the way to West Roxbury to buy groceries at Roche Bros. instead.
