The Strike is over... I don't know if Mystix dad got the short end of the stick but I am happy I can walk to the end of the parking lot at my apartment and get grub again! Today, managers at Vons, Albertsons and Ralphs will start calling back some of the 59,000 employees idled during the 4Â½ -month work stoppage. By the end of the week, managers at the chains ? which reportedly lost as much as $2.5 billion during the strike ? hope to have most of their operations back to normal.
