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 -

Spencerport, New York

J.R Cahoon is at it again

AUTHOR: Pete - (U.S.A.)

This is Pete Helfrich. Let me set the records straight. There never was a "Mustafa" working there when I did.

This is J.R Cahoon(the same loser I called a friend for nine years; for lack of better judgement)attempting to yank my chain and smear my name, once again.

This past Saturday morning(around one am)he called my house and left a death threat on the answering machine. I have it taped if anyone would like a copy. I star 66ed it; and it was traced back to his home phone(he's a real brain wiz, calling from his own house).

If anyone thinks this clown is telling the truth; then your are as ignorant as he is.

J.R is under investigation for identity theft; when he used my account to buy gay pride t-shirts and various items of junk.

One more thing about J.R Cahoon. He works at a home for the handycapped. He was under investigation for spanking a patient. They never proved it. He has in the past told me "Sometimes those tards need a good smack upside the head. If you give them a quick swat; on the back of the head, it won't leave a mark".

I had a teacher that perfected the art(of swatting someone good enough to shock you, but not leave a mark)..

This guy is sick..

Since I have known him for 9+ years; he knew I worked at Wegmans..

You can think what you like.. I'm not what this clown says I am..

Don't let his anti-Wegmans propaganda fool you

AUTHOR: Mustaffa - (U.S.A.)

I worked at Wegmans Warehouse the same dates this Pete Helfrich did and I am here to tell you that he is not only full of crap, but he is a neo-n**i supremacist pig!

I am 1st generation American, my family moving here in the late 70's from India.
My parents moved to a bad part of the city of Rochester (Avenue D for the ppl who know Rochester's ghettos)because that's all they could afford. Life in that neighborhood was tough-mostly black thugs who used to rob and beat me on a daily basis-but I stuck to the hard working ethics my immigrant parents taught me, and made it through high school. I earned a scholarship to RIT and worked at Wegmans Warehouse to get me through my 4 years of school. From 1999-2003, I toiled like crazy to make ends meat. In Feb of 2003, Peter Helfrich started to work with us and thus began the month from hell! He came in on a high horse-acting like he owned the place from the beginning. He constantly bragged that his grandmother was from Germany, which made him part of the "master race." Any of us employees who were from India, the Midddle East, or Asia were "3rd world scum" by his account and "Illegal parasites" and he constantly talked down to basically anyone who wasn't White.

Two employees who were friends of mine, one African-American and one Caucasian confronted this racist pig and he backed down like the true coward he is, saying he meant only to prove his "patriotism." However, when these two co-workers were not around, Peter would go around and say "seig-heil" and do the right handed n**i salute!

Don't let his anti-Wegmans propaganda fool you; He is no better than members of the Bush administration! That is why this loser, Pete Helfrich, is no better than members of the Bush administration (he is a big supporter of George W. Bush, go figure!)It's no wonder that this fanatic only lasted one month at Wegmans Warehouse. Keep spreading your lies Pete! You're the "parasite on Unemployment!
