Target: Thomas Perez, United States Secretary of Labor
Goal: Investigate Whole Foods’ alleged cheating of workers out of bonuses.
A former employee at a Washington, D.C. Whole Foods is suing the chain for supposedly cheating many workers out of their hard-earned bonuses, claiming that the store engaged in a scheme designed to pay employees as little as possible. Whole Foods is apparently investigating the claims. Whole Foods is famous for selling organic products at higher than average prices, but tends to enjoy a good reputation among most shoppers.
Despite the workers’ claims still not being 100 percent proven, it is important that their concerns be taken seriously. Right now, the working class of America is at risk of many losses due to Donald Trump’s desired cabinet and agenda being seemingly biased toward large, wealthy corporations. This is the time where the concerns of the working class must be heard loud and clear and addressed as thoroughly as possible.
Whole Foods has allegedly mistreated more than 20,000 workers. We must call for a more thorough investigation of the company’s alleged corporate greed and ensure that a solution be reached that is fair to the workers but does not defraud the chain. Sign this petition to demand a full investigation be conducted as soon as possible.
Dear Secretary Perez,
A former Whole Foods employee has accused the company of a corporate scheme designed to cheat over 20,000 workers out of their bonuses. Whole Foods claims to be investigating the matter, but more needs to be done. As of now, it is unclear how many of the employees’ claims are true, but this is a time where we must take the concerns of the workers seriously. Donald Trump will be in office very soon, and with his seemingly pro-corporate and pro-greed agenda, the working class needs extra focus and care now more than ever.
Please investigate this matter as soon and as thoroughly as possible. Whole Foods is an increasingly popular supermarket chain, but should the allegations against the company be true, action must be taken to ensure it corrects its misdeeds and does not get away with mistreating hard-working employees.
