Terry Reiter was right, in his Nov. 2 letter, about management of Lucky Stores being at fault, not Asher B. Edelman.
Management of a large corporation such as Lucky must work for the best interests of the company, which includes shareholders, customers and employees.
Gemco/Lucky's management didn't do its job, even at the end.
It sold Gemco too cheap, released 14,000 employees without trying to transfer them to jobs in other parts of the company and had them sign settlement releases to get release pay, not severance pay.
Also, it was announced that all employees would get help finding employment, writing resumes and a job-type fair would be held.
