Ask Ford, GM, and Chrysler how unions worked for them. Or the Rock Island Railroad.

Re: Starbucks Closing Some Stores Nationwide Due To Safety

I think they would do well if they affiliated with the SEIU.

Worst union created ever...a union only concerned with how much $ they can get from the Gov't and the taxpayer. Even FDR was against govt employee unions.

It’s cheaper to let a private bottler make soda for them under contract (Like Kalil Bottling in Arizona) Also Kroger is probably supplying private label ice cream to SoCal from its Arizona plant.

Re: Speedway/7-Eleven integration

The main competitor to Slurpee was/is Icee, which was introduced a decade before Slurpee. In fact many 7-11s sold Icee before the introduction of Slurpees.

Re: Costco Raises Food Court Prices

Glass is heavier than plastic-meaning a truck full of glass bottles uses more fuel than one with plastic/aluminum containers. Plus the energy and chemicals required to wash/reuse glass containers.
