While Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods has received a lot of media attention, there has been little discussion of the impact on Whole Foods' employees. And the impact has been huge. But while Amazon's gutting of employee profit sharing is just plain greedy, it's nothing new.

And the conventional wisdom about good places to work, places like Costco, Trader Joe's and others, ignores the fact that in 1980 grocery store workers made nearly twice as much.
