EDITOR: On Nov. 7 I went to Raley’s on Placerville Drive to take advantage of the specials advertised. I am aware of the employee strike, but feel that is their business, not mine.

Most of the strikers were making noise, sounding like a high school cheering group. The so-called “security” was mingling with the strikers looking like old friends. At the door, a fairly large male got in my face and started shouting something about retirement and health benefits.
I told him I was there to shop for the specials and he told me I should go somewhere else to shop. He then babbled something else, staying loud and in my face. I didn’t recognize him as a Raley’s employee from this store, nor the two or three other guys standing around with him. I assume he was some sort of union thug sent out to intimidate the senior citizens coming to the store to save a few bucks with the advertized specials. I’ll be back.
