Costco CEO Craig Jelinek supports raising the minimum wage.
Costco announced record profits today, averaging $10,000 in profit per employee compared to $7,400 at Walmart.
The secret to Costco’s success is paying employees well, providing benefits, and giving them an opportunity to unionize.
So large corporations’ excuses that treating & paying workers well would damage profits are all a crock of shit.
Really interesting. Happy employees are always a great thing.

Angelina Opens Up About Her Double Mastectomy
Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy and details why in this powerful editorial. Not sure why this hit me as hard, but I can’t remember such woman who is a symbol of culture, power and femininity being this vocal about this kind of treatment. Bravo.
