Compensation an average of $27.50 dollars an hour?! No wonder to the price of groceries are so high in the Bay Area!

During the strike, Raley's, can you please replace these workers permanently with non-union employees.

13 bucks an hour + benefits. Well, where I come from that's almost 30 thousand a year. One should be able to comfortably support at least 5 families on that. What are they complaining about?

$12.95 to $21.13 OMG! They make $26k - $40k per year! Time to slap down those union thugs. Minimum wage for everyone.

Pretty good wages for unskilled labor. B, maybe they should be paid 6 figures to further devalue the work that non union employess perform.
