TD: How is the co-op to be a success and make money if the workers snarf heaps of food ?

Qx: That's an assumption on your part and who knows how much food management "snarfs" up without the workers?

TD: It's like putting a bunch of kids in charge of a sweet shop.. Sooner or later, personal greed rears it's ugly head, and the natural desire to want a little bit more becomes grab what you can while you can, which in turn becomes full on trolley dash. A little here, a little there, and who's that knocking on the door ? It's Ms Accountant with a bankruptcy order....

Qx: Oh yes...just like the St. Hubert store in Quebec where gross manipulation is the order of the day and pleas of sales losses were used to justify closing that store when the workers voted for union representation.
