Food Lion is the fastest growing supermarket chain in the nation, but there is concern over how the company treats its workers. A lawsuit has been filed by the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union over the company’s “unfair labor practices.” Employees interviewed are upset over long hours, no overtime pay, low wages, and a culture of fear. Questions are also being raised about the company’s profit sharing policy which benefits only one in ten employees and is perceived by many to have been the reason they are fired before they can collect the benefits. Food Lion refutes all claims.
