Publix / everyone is not treated equal

1 United States Review updated:

Iv'e been working for publix for several years one of the best places i've ever worked. Unfortunatly some things are very unfair. If I was black it would be great but i'm white. White people have to go by publix rules while all blacks do not. I don't understand I thought all people were created egual but it seems its not. I see black women with finger nails 1 to 2 inches long. Let a white lady try this they would be suspended. Black men have long braids and dont't shave if I tried this I wouldn't have a job or be suspended. So even though I can"t say much because I really need my job. Why can't we be all be treated egualrules are rules' treat us all the same'

    Consult a lawyer about Reverse Racism in your area and see what you can get out of that.

    Publix is scared of blacks. Most big company's are. Its a numbers game. I have been told I have to hire a certain color(it has went both ways). If you were in a mostly black store you have gotten promoted. I know still not fair but that's how it work. A white promotion out of a black store.

    Now it's race? When I worked there for over 7 years ago in the 1990's, it was women.

    We were actually told by one manager that there was a hiring/promotion freeze for ALL men. Period. Not official, of course, but for about the next year, no guy should expect to be promoted into management. That's what happened.
    Women with less experience, poorer records, etc... were promoted into management. They skipped over many guys that were waiting in line.

    Publix will not get sued for skipping over a white dude. But will get sued over and over if someone thinks they (female, minority, etc...) might have been passed over.

    Sad. I liked working for Publix. The pay was low (of course... grocery store...) but goof benefits, and lots of nice people there.
