Grocery Store Manager Allegedly Mocks Customer's Food Stamp
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - One Georgia woman is on the front lines of the battle for the 47 percent.
Kroger, America's largest grocery chain, has transferred one of its store managers
after customer Cindy Nerger accused the manager of mocking her for
using food stamps, local news outlet I3WMAZ reports. Last week, she
says, the manager told Nerger that her purchases weren't covered by food
stamps. The manager later acknowledged that food stamps covered all the
items in Nergers' cart, but reportedly went on to say, "Well excuse me
that I work for a living and don't rely on food stamps like you.''
Nerger spends 12 hours a day
on dialysis and has been waiting for a kidney transplant for years,
according to an earlier I3WMAZ article. Her family relies on the income
of her husband, who only works part time so he can care for her. click here to read more
