"Hi Dax! That's a great point that I forgot. I think the real point is that so many people are losing their jobs. Does anyone have any experience with observing how transitions like this were handled in the past, whether specificly by Whole…"
"Yeah, from what I have read, Whole Foods treats their employees really well. Do Stop and Shop or the other grocery chains hire only temp workers? If not, why suspect WF of that? Is it necessary for Whole Foods to expose all the details of the…"

"In terms of the 54 Forbes situation, at the last crime watch meeting, the police recommended not approaching the people living there in person.
I can't vouch for my neighbor's experience with the police. I believe him when he tells me his…"
