Exclusive club lol. This isn't a loving super expensive country club where you have to get sponsored or something.

Pay $50, make up that $50 after going there a couple of times.

Sorry dude. This isn't an elite club. Sam's club exists (which you have to pay for) and it's still filled with Walmart degenerates.

Yeah I'd say mine is a Hispanic and Asian majority with a fair amount of Indians and African Americans, and white people being the minority. It's probably more a reflection of local demographics, as is any location, but it's definitely not some exclusive upper middle class white enclave

According to their pledge thing on the inside of the stores shareholders are third on the list for importance.
I don't really care too much though, it's just Costco seems to do things right.

It's number 5.
1. Obey the law
2. Suck member dick
3. Employee
4. Be nice to the people who's poo poo we sell
5. Do the other 4, shareholders get what they want

There has been a pretty long history of shareholder meetings going something like this though:

uh so your wages and benefits are too high and you could be paying ME dividends instead of these loving serfs. I demand you stop paying PT employees benefits.

Actually, the wages and benefits are the reason for our success and probably why you are a shareholder in the first place

They could cut benefits and pay for a very brief stock bump, letting shareholders sell off for a small profit, then just shut the place down because it would immediately suck

Thankfully the CEO and his hand picked successor agree: Costco *makes* money paying good wages.

About '93 my family and I were the first people in line for the grand opening of the brand new Costco. We even had our photo on the front page of the local newspaper.

Standing there, in the early and wet Oregon morning, mist hanging about the freshly paved parking lot.

Once they opened those doors, and I had my first free sample, my life was forever changed.

Kind of an odd combination cause winco is a good company and sam's club is owned by walmart.

Ask me about waking up at 3am to work at receiving in a Costco warehouse. Actually don't, I have to go to bed in half an hour.

That's par for the course when you do DC and warehouse work though, the fact that I had to get up at 3am to deliver paper products to three different Costco stores 90 miles apart by 6:30am doesn't mean they're a selfish evil company, just means that a lot of stuff needs to happen 24/7.

If poor people had higher IQs they'd all shop there its much cheaper in the long run.

Rich people shop there because they like to save money, its not really their fault.
