White youth and or even adults aren't that into working in supermarkets anymore, nor have they in years. Back when A&P and others ran things, and nearly all places were union things were different. Today your average high school or college age "white" person has far better employment options, that is if they want/need to work at all.


That being said you still find a few whites working in supermarkets scattered about. Many however have been with places for decades, and usually are working for union shops.
You'll find a decent number of white people working in Trader Joes. And of all ages, from 20s till old age. Trader Joes pays better, so of course white people work there.

Some people tend to forget nationally there are lots of working class white people who have no degrees and have to get whatever they can get. And that includes NYC itself.........

Lots of white people in Manhattan still work in restaurants, bars, or hotels because tipping puts them above minimum wage grocery store jobs like Gristedes. But they are still working in retail/services.

There you go again; more off the cuff remarks from sunny Spain.


Retail/service sector covers a vast and bewildering array of employment. From hospitality right down to stock in a supermarket. That being said not every position is same, and thus employment demographics will vary (by race if you want to get down to things).


Gucci, Prada, Tiffany's, Channel, and other luxury goods are "retail", but you don't see tons of minorities working in many of those stores. Mercedes-Benz, Rolls-Royce, BMW are also retail (car sales), but you don't see those shops full of minorities either on average.


Hotels have concierges, managers and other positions that are largely held by whites. While housekeeping, the kitchens and other staff largely are minorities.


In any event we were discussing *supermarkets* here, so please try and keep up.

The point is there are plenty of whites with MINIMUM education in NYC, and working behind a cashier is still working behind a cashier, despite the alleged "upscaleness" of the employer. Some of those "upscale" cashiers working in those fabulous white retailers are likely sharing a ROOM (not an apartment) with another person, or otherwise living a ridiculous number of people to an apartment. I certainly knew this crowd well from my East Village and Williamsburg days (it's where these kids would hang out after work) and life for them was not so fabulous.

So please drop your "heirs" Mr. Bunker.

The area’s been filling out with workers and housing developments for several years now. Its direct transit access is a full ten minutes walk from the nearest subway station, but there are buses directly serving the area.
