Talk about kicking a person when they're down. First off none of this is their bee's wax. There's lots of reasons why even the most conscience person may fall upon hard times. You'd think these would make for more desperate employees who'd show up to the job. Instead-- not to single out Wegmans-- many employers assume these individuals might be prone to steal out of desperation.
What this all boils down to is giving someone a chance to prove themselves for whatever number of days before condemning them. I'm so damn glad I'm at the age where I don't have to deal with these kind of things. In a world where people make assumed judgments against others before these persons' have been given an opportunity to prove otherwise their worth.
It isn't as if these grunts were applying to be directors of the company.
Just some crappy job restocking shelves or rounding up carts to put back in the store.
GIVE ME A BREAK !
