Squeezes

What is the Big Squeeze? Whirlpool is SQUEEZING us in many underhanded ways, all while executing their long-term plans. The list of SQUEEZES is long, and it is not always obvious that there is intent to harm. Perhaps not every SQUEEZE is aimed at us directly. But, with this long list, a pattern emerges: executing Whirlpool’s plans, disrupting our business and costing us money.

Each of these SQUEEZES could have been handled differently. Whirlpool has incredible resources to do their research, respond to our inquiries, notify us regarding impacts from their development, fix mistakes. They have chosen not to. We are inconvenient to their plans, and they don’t care if we are collateral damage.
