I am appalled but not surprised about the Haggen bankruptcy. I believe anyone with a bit of business sense would have known that Albertson was going to offload their worst stores.
My concern is for the 10,000-plus great employees. I believe bankruptcy is always an attempt to eliminate unions and employee representation. I wondered why I was seeing so many new faces at the Ferndale Haggens.
Also, what about paying all the wonderful small, local vendors?. This is wrong in so many ways and everyone who had a hand in it should be fired.
Another example of capitalism run amok.
