Wegmans Addresses Bus Monitor Incident

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — If Karen Klein wants a new job, Wegmans Food Markets may have one for her.

“#KarenKlein demonstrated grace and courage. She hasn’t yet, but she’s welcome to apply for a job @Wegmans,” Wegmans tweeted yesterday.

Klein, a 68-year old bus monitor for the Greece Central School District, near Rochester, was shown in a cell phone video being subjected to — and brought to tears as a result of — vicious insults and taunts by a group of middle school students. The video went viral on the Internet this week.
