Safeway's Stock Soars 67% in 2000

Same store sales rose 4.9% in the firms fiscal third quarter with profits of $270 million on $7.5 billion in sales.

This is great news for investors and management but

Working people buy Safeway's groceries and working people provide the profit!

Safeway stores are built by working people. Many of these people work for contractors who pay substandard wages and provide little or not benefits. Is this fair?

Why should works have to suffer while Safeway profits soar?

Send a message to Safeway management

Boycott Safeway!

Why should works have to suffer while Safeway profits?

Tell your Safeway Store manager that you support good wages and benefits for workers and that you don't approve of policies that are bad for Arizona Construction Workers!

Think about it! Aren't We All Workers?


When a person with NO insurance gets sick, who pays the bill?

In many cases you (the taxpayers) do.

Many of the contractors that build Safeway Stores pay their workers substandard wages and provide little or NO benefits,
Like health insurance or a pension plan.

Workers earning substandard wages have a hard enough time just surviving without having expensive medical bills to pay.

It's the taxpayers, like you, who have to make up the difference. Is this fair?

Safeway treats its employees fairly. They have a Union Collective Bargaining Agreement that provides fair wages, good working conditions, health insurance and a pension plan.

Why can't that same standard exist for the construction workers that build Safeway's stores?

Every workers deserves fair wages and employer paid benefits that taxpayers don't have to subsidize.

Urge your Safeway Store Manager to let their management know that you support fair wages and benefits for workers.
