The more people learn about Manhattan multimillionaire Aaron Woolf, the less there is to like. Whether it’s the 83 health code violations at his business or his ‘do as I say, not as I do’ investment strategy, Woolf is making news for all the wrong reasons.
But all of that pales in comparison to Woolf’s position on food prices. Despite the fact that 76% of Americans say that rising food prices are hurting their finances, Aaron Woolf amazingly thinks Americans need to “pay more for food.”
Check out Woolf’s interview with NPR regarding food prices in America:
“Woolf says Americans should pay more for their food, the rest of the world does. And he wants shoppers who are willing to pay 12 dollars for a large jar of Brooklyn pickles or seven for a chocolate bar * * *.” – A Truly Green Grocer,” National Public Radio, April 23, 2008
And based on the prices from Woolf’s Brooklyn grocery store, North Country voters can only hope that Woolf doesn’t get a chance to implement his policy. Check out the graphic to the right for a quick comparison of food prices in Woolf’s infamous Brooklyn grocery store vs. food prices in Glens Falls.
NRCC Comment: “Throughout the country people are struggling with stagnant wages and a higher cost of living, but Aaron Woolf amazingly wants everyone to have to pay more for their food. That may work for Woolf, a Manhattan multimillionaire who profits from stock in Fortune 500 food companies, but it would absolutely crush middle class families in the North Country just trying to get by.” – NRCC Spokesman Ian Prior
