Re: “Joe's Foes

Yes, we in the neighborhood are confused also. I am a strong Union supporter and I wouldn't cross a REAL picket line. But this is a case where the union is just plain WRONG. Why? Unions might call it "Bread and Circuses" but Farmer Joe's (Joe and Diana) have been an integral part of the the Laurel, and now Dimond, community for over 12 years. They have ALWAYS donated to community events from produce to whatever is needed. I find produce there that I can't find in other stores. Well, IF I wanted to traipse over to Berkeley Bowl where I have NEVER shopped (my disabilty prevents me from parking a long way off), I might find what I need. But I prefer to shop in my neighborhood. I have never purchased anything expired or moldy. Of course, if I take it home and let it sit for 5 days, my produce can become moldy. Joe and Diana have borrowed to the hilt to create an attractive community venue from a eyesore. Opening was delayed over 6 months because of environmental issues. You SHOULD have been there last year on June 24, 2006 when ithe Grand Opening was a huge community event. The neighborhood is angry at the Union and that makes me sad. As far as I am able to discern the Union was called in when two employees were fired..for CAUSE. The neighbor hood can tell the "Healy COmmunity" group is another one of the Union shennanigans. Why doesn't the Union go picket TRADER Joe's? Or Wal-Mart. Those places don't care about the community or theie Employees. Joe and Diana do.
