Make sure you follow up with the report when the Fed finds no racism existed. But I doubt you will.

In fact there is racism that exists within the wegmans workplace.I have worked for wegmans for 4 years.I have been discrimnated against ,mangers made all the black employees do all the work.We have been retaliated agaisnt.Majority of the wegmans employees are white.The only reason they hired blacks because they had to reach their quota.

What I wrote to wegmans......I was at your store on East Ave appoximately 7pm when I was approached by a causcasian couple, who while I was in the parking lot, cursed and yelled racial epithets at me unprovoked and appeared as though they were going to attack me. The helping hands at the store stood within 10 feet watching the whole thing and wouldn't even get store security to help me. When I finally got to the store the security guard asked me to identify the couple I pointed them out and he said he would talk to them and told me to go to a different area of the store, he never appoaches them, then comes to me and says that he can't do anything as he did not witness the incident himself and that I couldn't call 911. WOW 2 days before thanksgiving and this is how Wegmans treats their customer's. Leaving them vunerable to racial hatred and physical harm.....Unbelievable, your helping hands staff was of no help, and when I was in need of assistance 2 males just stood there and did nothing. Your security guard knew who these people were that had approached me and did nothing. You should be very ashamed of your staff. I know I was very ashamed and disappointed to be a wegmans customer, and I used to brag about your store and tell everyone to shop there, but it is clear there is racial bias at your store, IF this how you treat your AA customers, god help your AA employees. I will no longer be a customer. I am so disappointed in wegmans WOW!

trying to find some one who cares about your business, your customers,your good will,and not just a pay check ,can be a problem.especially when yourhave to fill a government quota .for myself , i dont like the idea of ,you know who. spitting in my sandwitch..getting the order wrong . sam has a nasty habit of kicking the can into somebody elses back yard. ive know quite a few that closed up shop, because they were run with employees with no sense.sometimes me thinks its just about the money,the discrimination police,and sucking on the business wallet.washingtons way of "LAWS WITH FLAWS".

Idid not have my cell but when I did get to call they said they wouldn't have been able to do anything. I guess I mistakenly thought store security and helping hands would actually help. Rochester is just awful. Now I know how wegman's is, I will no longer spend my money there.
