I doubt it. Itís just a screw at the bottom of a hopper, right? Steel foodservice equipment like that usually disassembles easily for cleaning.

If cost-cutting is the driver for the Great Onion Change of 2018 then on the face of it this doesnít make sense. Itís way more labor to portion and pack a bunch of cups than it is to fill a hopper.

This ignores the outrageous expense of white onions in TYOOL 2018.

I'm pretty Gotham sure the highest wages and benefits for employees should be on the cooling block long before the onion dispenser if activist investors were running the company.

So I tied an onion to my belt, as was the fashion at the time, you couldn't get any yellow one because of the war, only big white ones, Shelbyville was called Morganville and the ferry cost a nickel, nickels had pictures of bees on them-"give my five bees for a quarter" we'd say

They're actually pretty easy to clean. The worst bit about cleaning them was getting a whiff of the pickled onions that have been sitting in there.

Honestly that's why I'm not too heart broken about it. I'm always a little skeeved, it's just that my love for onion overpowers any kind of sanitary fears I might have.

It is probably to discourage onion salads, and for sanitary reasons. If you go to Costco and ask for a cup of onions with your pizza and they say no, then be worried.

Went to the church today, got a dog.

People were literally fighting over carts outside, the runners weren't able to bring them back fast enough. I feel sorry for the cart runners, it's hot as hell out there today.

Yeah, the parking lot wasn't quite full too, and it wasn't like there were tons of carts abandoned in the lot, I had quite a walk to go fine one in a coral I could use. Maybe the shareholders have insisted on less carts per store.

I usually park in the back half to third of the lot depending on how busy it is to avoid having to hunt for a spot. I do strongly prefer to park on one of the rows that has a walkway between the cars so that my kids aren't playing in traffic on the way in.

So put your faith

Holy gently caress goons are dumb. Costco has a long storied history of actually telling shareholders to gently caress off.
Literally every shareholders meeting, a bunch of genius capitalists squawk about reducing wages and benefits, especially for part time employees. Just a couple months ago they gave all American hourly workers a big increase (in addition to what is included in the 3 year employee agreement).

There's been a long standing discussion about the onion dispensers ranging from:
- Food safety
- People getting pissed off if they are empty
- Cheap motherfuckers like several in the last page bragging that they never buy onions
- The not insignificant amount of time staff need to spend monitoring and refilling them, vs the ease of monitoring how many cups are left in the fridge.

That said Costco is not immune. gently caress it's possible Amazon could just buy us, but nothing of consequence has happened yet. If they start clawing back part time wages and benefits and increasing the proportion of said part timers, you can sound the alarms. Until then, ask for onions at the counter.

If there were actually a shareholder revolt that $1.50 Costco dog would be the first to go, not some measly onions.

Costco is down 14 cents last week. the hedge funds that read these forums will look to force Costco remove onions if they haven't already
