WASHINGTON, D.C. – Marc Perrone, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW), made the following statement regarding changes at Whole Foods in the year since they were acquired by Amazon.
“Slowly but surely, Amazon is making Whole Foods a much worse place to work and shop.
“This is unsurprising. Amazon’s retail vision replaces good jobs and talented employees with automation.
“Political leaders must realize now, before it’s too late, that the massive job loss this business model leads to could cripple our entire economy.
“The dedicated men and women who work at Whole Foods have earned and deserve better than the treatment they are receiving from Amazon.”
