    Just like gun violence, thoughts and prayers have little real world effect when a tornado rolls through.

    I can confirm that after working for a dollar store, they throw away a lot of food that's not expired. Usually the company puts out a memo with a target date (usually within or just over a month) for certain products to be deleted from the system as expired.

    Another day, another viral expose of the willful waste perpetrated by corporations across America. It gets repetitive but never fails to amaze me the levels of just plain evil behavior that we've been conditioned to accept as normal.

    Now my dad who worked for Walmart as a DM did bring up the point that they could have been recalled as well.

    I remember the Whole Foods CEO was saying some stupid **** a year or two ago about how people just need to shop healthier at Whole Foods and not need Health Insurance coverage. It's like, dude, most people get old eventually if nothing else goes wrong before then.

    True. But all you have to do is look at the comments to see the long line of retail employees detailing how willful waste is common policy in both restaurant and supermarket chains. (Not to mention clothing outlets) - Throwback to Kroger calling the cops to stop people from taking food from their dumpsters when the power went out on the west coast last year.

    Would be nice to think that these ******** would be held accountable for this. I've pretty much lost all hope for that sort of thing, though. Much less Congress actually passing laws to protect workers in similar situations...

    Big business is feeling the pressure. Keep applying it and they will crack.
