my name is joyce stout, and i have been employed by P&C foods since 1990, when they bought out grand union. i was an employee of grand union from 1984 until they bought us. i enjoy my job very much, and i am a people person, that is why i have stayed with P&C for that many years, and i would love to have had it stay that way alot more, but we all know the story from there. tops took us over, and i was dropped down from $16.86 to $13.47! plus my 4 weeks that i had accumilated had been stripped of me! DO YOU THINK THAT WAS FAIR?? apparently our great union did, cause they did nothing about it, and just let us get screwed. and now, you people are going to screw us again!! why dont you just let us alone. i work at the P&C/tops at Ellis hollow rd in ithaca, along with alot of other very devoted employees. Have you ever had your paycheck torn in half?? you people wouldnt know what it would be like. You probebly make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Just as long as you get your paychecks, what difference does it make about a few smaller people. Before you throw us to the dogs, you should look at the hard workers and think what's best for them. we all know our jobs, and if we didnt like it there, then why would we have stayed for so long. you should go to the stores and talk to the customers. our store is out by itself. these people dont want to drive all the way downtown to get groceries, or just a quick thing for dinner. YOU NEED TO SIT BACK AND REALLY LOOK AT WHAT YOUR DOING!!!
