  •  He's not just the CEO (1+ / 0-)

    He's also the co-founder of Whole Foods.  He's truly a nutcase who talks out of both sides of his mouth and is the worst "phony hippy" I've ever known of.  John Mackey is virulently anti-union, is a climate change denier, and cops to the label of "free market libertarian."  

    The fact that he's co-founder means that, regardless of any formal position he may have in Whole Foods' chain of command, any dollars you spend at Whole Foods will result in dollars in his pocket.

    We just had a new Whole Foods open near us but I guarantee that I'll never set foot in John Mackey's store.  We're fortunate to have a Trader Joe's and I fully support them and their well-treated employees in every way.

    It's not a question of whether our founding fathers are rolling in their graves but rather of how many RPM they're clocking.
