Biden’s doing a great job of ‘screwing up’ America: Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus
Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus discusses the economy under Joe Biden, telling ‘Cavuto: Coast to Coast’ the president is doing ‘everything wrong’ and has no answer for inflation.
Home Depot workers in Philadelphia voted against forming the first store-wide labor union on Saturday night.
Workers at the world’s largest home improvement retailer voted 165 to 51 to reject forming Home Depot Workers United to represent 274 employees at the store, the National Labor Relations Board said.
The result is considered a loss for an upstart movement to organize at major U.S. companies.
Some activist workers have succeeded in unionization efforts. Employees at over 230 Starbucks locations in the U.S. have voted to unionize since late 2021. Near the end of August, Chipotle Mexican Grill workers at a Lansing, Michigan, restaurant voted to join the Teamsters, marking the first instance for the restaurant chain.
