Why I am voting NO on the Atlanta contract?


Just joined Kroger or new at Kroger? Want to know what is the starting wage you will get? If yes then this blog is for you! As one of the newly joined employee posted his concern on the Kroger public forum.


While he stated: it only provides minimum wage increases (25 cents) and does not bump us up to what new hires will be paid which is $12/hr. On 6/26/2022 pay rises to $10/50/hr/ 6/25/2023 is $10.75/hr. On 6/23/2024 $11.00/hr. It’s bad pay rate for Courtesy Clerks, at the expense of higher wage increases for other employees and new hires that will start at $12/hr.
