As an Employee of Kroger's....I would like to respond to this. The only people that are exempt from joining the Union are people under the age of 18. When you are hired in the Company, you have a 45 day probation period where you have to prove whether or not you want the job but most importantly if the managers want you to work for them. After your 45 days are up, you are told to pay Union Dues which are 9 dollars each paycheck. However I can tell you that with my own experience as far as some issues that have come up with certain supervisors....the Union has helped me out on several occasions. I hope this answers your question that you have. Take care and God bless

Maybe someone is familiar with "prevailing wage" here's a fact...prevailing wage for construction wages is based off of the union wage for the area
