No need to shop there if this is how they treat employees who are trying to help the company.
The story behind this:
John Schultz WAS an employee for Whole Foods on Washtenaw. Was because he tried to stop a shoplifter his manager and others had cornered in the parking lot there. The idiot shoplifter broke free from between the cars where they had him cornered (and isn't CORNERING someone still considered false imprisonment?) so Mr. Schultz ran after the man actually catching up to him and GRABBING THE SHOPLIFTERS COAT at Washtenaw Ave and Huron Parkway. When the manager showed up to where Mr. Schultz had grabbed the man by his jacket, the manager told Mr. Schultz to let go and he immediately complied.
So, the next day Mr. Schultz, an employee of Whole Foods for FIVE YEARS, was called into the office and fired. Schultz says since he was on break and the incident happened off of Whole Foods property there was no cause for termination. Whole Foods talk head spokesmodel Kate Klotz disagrees. "The fact that he touched him, period, is means for termination. He is still considered an employee of Whole Foods Market regardless of where he was and what was happening," she said.
Got that Whole Foods employees, better not try to stop someone from breaking into your car on the lot there, or depending upon what types of Sauron's Eye seeing everywhere company policy Kate Klotz thinks they employ, maybe not in your own driveway either.
So, Washtenaw County, now would be a very good time to simply stop shopping at Whole Foods for a while. What kind of sane company does this? OK, you want to punish this guy, ever hear of a "write up"? YCD thought Whole Foods was supposed to be the hippie, krunchy, liberal company, GUESS NOT.
Again, simply, if you choose, stay away from Whole Foods for a while. They've earned no less here.
