I know this might sound crazy - but it's true.I worked at Wegmans Warehouse on 1500 Brooks Ave from Feb - 03 to March. And what they have been getting away with is making me ill. What Danny Wegman does is - donate 20 to 25 Million $'s to the Catholic Church in Rochester. This might make him APPEAR to be some kind of humanitarian - but folks - it's just a smoke screen. What he gets in return is SPONSORSHIP from the church (immigrants need sponsorship and a job to get into this country " legally "). Wegmans exploits this loop hole by bribing the church , so that they can attain CHEAP labor.What this does is drive down the hourly rate for people like you and I.
Kodak Xerox just about killed this town ( by sending our jobs out of the country via the NAFTA treaty ). By Wegmans smuggling people in from INDIA , PAKISTAN , IRAQ , IRAN , AFGANISTAN ( just name a few ) it takes work away from the people that live in Rochester and are from America. Which -in turn - drives down the local pay for all area workers ( because when there is a shortage of jobs - people will work for less - ). And if that is not enough to make you want to shop at Tops - they also short these people on there overtime pay. The immigrants are too afraid to ask for the money Wegmans shorts them on - because they are afraid of being deported.
I have filed a complaint with the labor board - due to the fact that they screwed me an average 8 hours per week on my pay since I was there. But thats besides the point.. One of these jerks they brought in from Afghanistan tried to burn one of the American flags we had hanging up (needless to say he - was not seen after that)..
Do we want people like this in the country??HELL NO!!So do me a favor and do your shopping elswhere...If you want extra proof of my claims - I will give anyone who asks - names of other workers there - to verify this..
Thank you for your time -
