ALDI Doesn’t Care About Your Town and its Citizens

In towns throughout the Northeast, ALDI Corporation has hired a number of contractors to develop and redevelop its stores. These contractors hire carpentry subcontractors who pay their construction workers LESS THAN area standard wages. Also, very few of these contractors supply health insurance or retirement plans to their employees.

This is an issue that everyone should care about, as All Americans suffer when middle-class workers are exploited.


On many of these construction projects:

    • These contractors don’t contribute to these communities…
    • They don’t spend their money in these communities.
    • They don’t pay their workers good healthcare and retirement benefits, which puts a tremendous drag on healthcare/senior services in these communities.

So, there’s that. … but there’s also this: 

Is this somewhere you want to shop?

Tell Aldi that you oppose its hiring of construction contractors and subcontractors that are not complying with the company’s Social Standards in Production policy that states that: “as a minimum, our suppliers and business partners shall comply with the wages mandated by the government’s minimum wage legislation, or industry standards approved on the basis of collective bargaining, whichever is higher.
