Not everyone can fly like a Giant Eagle
“Giant Eagle Chief Laura Karet Gets in Front of the Camera,” April 27, relates how Giant Eagle CEO/tsarina — and don’t forget, Pittsburgher! — Laura Karet deigned to appear in TV ads with her smiling-for-the-camera-employees while touting how much Giant Eagle cares for the community by promoting contributions to food local banks, etc.
Maybe because the once Hughesian-shy “Iggle” is losing its virtual “talonhold” on the area, what with Bottom Dollar Food and Aldi’s that offer prices that working-class families — including Giant Eagle employees — can actually afford?
You want to give to your community?
Start with living wages for employees instead of hugs.
Not everyone can spread their wings and fly like an “Iggle” or roost in Fox Chapel like the scion Ms. Karet.
