    The last time I was there, I found that A&W needed to fix their fries, and change how they cook the meat in their burgers (generic, McD's type stuff). They also didn't have a full lineup of A&W products, just the root beer and diet root beer. Where's the cream soda? Offer something that can't be found in the next shop down the street.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

Whole Foods likely won't go to that extreme, based upon brand expectations, but they won't keep the same pricing structure as they have now.
    And the workers will be the ones that take it in the shorts to make up for it...

    Having never had a single interaction with Whole Foods, I'd have to guess that they're following the standards for the rest of the retail industry. Translation: the staff is already taking it in the pants.

    Besides, retail is one of the very few industries where the majority of costs are associated with the product and not labor.

    Depends on who you ask.

    According to this, Whole Foods is a great place to work.

    But an opposing view says like many other retail chains, Whole Foods is the devil.

    This is beautiful. Originally aired in 1988.

    There are three or four clips aired on that show when they went after Trump. If only the kids realized what they were doing at the time. Those jokes likely went over the heads of a lot of the adults watching with their kids, too.
