In Corvallis, Oregon, sits a WinCo Foods discount supermarket. You might drive by without noticing it, but I assure you, it’s an extraordinary building, a laboratory of capitalism worthy of pilgrimages by the world’s great business schools. Inside the store labor 130 employees of WinCo – grocery clerks, shelf stockers, display builders, bakery workers – and their combined retirement savings roughly comes to an astounding $100 million. And that figure is growing rapidly, such that in a few years the average wealth of these employees could easily exceed $1 million. Quite a few individual workers already have account balances above that level.
