The Gold Standard of Union-Hating Retailers


Menards 2015 Employent Agreement (1)

That’s what Hamilton Nolan called Menard’s, a Midwestern home improvement store chain. It’s CEO, John Menard is an anti-union extremist and is close friends with Scott Walker. For years, it’s had a policy that if you are a Menard’s manager and you allow a union to form at the store, you the manager will lose 60% of your salary, which is essentially firing you. But the company made a mistake in actually placing this in its contracts with managers, creating a major backlash that forced the company to withdraw the offending clause. But that’s not going to change the massive pressure corporate places on managers to ensure that workers have no voice on the job. Just another day in the New Gilded Age.
