In order for a blog to be effective, it needs to be representative of the opinions and preferences of its intended audience. I feel that when retail grocery workers need to look for information on issues and problems that directly influence them, they tend to face barriers. Even though the internet has provided these workers with an anonymous identity from exploitive employers, finding adequate social support can be a challenge. These sources of support are difficult to locate, access, and apply to a worker’s situation. This would include my first attempt at a blog devoted to retail grocery workers. Therefore, I am encouraging current and previous workers in the retail grocery industry to make suggestions. This will also include suggestions from family, community groups, employers, and government agencies. I believe the information that is available for retail grocery workers has created divisions within the industry. As a result, representation of these workers has not reached its intended goals. By establishing an audience, I believe we then can begin to organize the issues and problems that hinder the growth of this industry and its workers.
