      Kroger, the parent company of grocer Fred Meyer, announced Friday that it will provide “thank you” payments to hourly employees after a union outcry over the company ending a $2 per hour pay bump it implemented in March amid the coronavirus pandemic.

      The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union held rallies Friday at Fred Meyer stores seeking additional pay for workers while the pandemic continues, KREM-TV reported.

      Kroger officials said Friday that bonus payments of $400 and $200 for full- and part-time employees will be paid in two installments in May and June.

      Gee, what a deal.  In WA, I think minimum is $11.10.  $2 bump makes it 13.10/hr.  $2 extra for a 35-hour week for 4 weeks (1 mo) = $280 x 2 = $560.

      Awfully white of them to offer $400.

      can’t have anything continuing for the length of this crisis.

      When the going gets tough, the tough help each other.
