Safeway must have paid someone off to give them this award - or else it is the shareholders that are saying this. Most Ethical? Ridiculous. Safeway's only concern is to their shareholders. That is it. No ethics at all.

It's all about the unions, see? Like first the unionists sneak their members into Greenpeace because, see, both the union and Greenpeace are communists anyway. Then the unionist mole gets himself in a position where he can influence Greenpeace's rating system. Same with Ethisphere Institute. Although their not communist, per say, they are very vulnerable to bribes. I know first hand that the union leadership of thugs held Safeway's corporate bosses feet to the flame and made them bribe Ethisphere. Reading ethics and unions in the same paragraph is about enough to make any liberty seeking individual puke.

I'm guessing that even if this ethical company rating that Safeway were true, that is about to change. Uber-greedy equity firms don't rate high in ethics, they'll do most anything to get the highest financial returns for their shareholders/partners. In some cases they also just loot the assets of the company they acquire, such as Cerberus did to Mervyn's.
