ShawnDoc: Weaver95: And I'll bet that CEO honestly believes that he is well liked by his employees....Um, the guy in the story isn't the CEO. He's a former director hired on as a consultant.
impaler: SirEattonHogg: Yes, but one could argue that his money trickled down to the Ferrari salesman and the auto production workers at Ferrari, and his tax dollars will go in part for the laid off worker's welfare and unemployment benefits.So, in fact, this consultant/board member is actually a good guy. A hero, even.Nailed it!/this is what Republicans actually believe
Solid Muldoon: I've got a pitchfork. Anybody got a torch?
rudemix: And the pissed off, broke at Xmas ex-employee will go in and shoot the mug who drank his coffee once, and a secretary but not the owner.
stirfrybry: There's no disputing that those 45 employees were the best employeees ever and this company is the worst company ever.
OgreMagi: TV's Vinnie: Gee. Sure would be a shame if it got keyed.A lot.There are certain chemicals that won't be noticeable or will look like water, but will leave a lasting impression after a few days. It would be a damn shame if someone were to spell "douche" on that car with one of those chemicals.
xiola: / also an F50, not a 458 in the pic.
forgotmydamnusername: I had a job many years ago where the owner showed up in a new Mercedes on the day they told me I was getting cut back to half time. This sort of thing is so common it's barely even worth mentioning. Anyone with an IQ higher than a sack of flour is going to resent the hell out of it, though. "Enlightened self-interest" indeed. Capitalists truly are their own worst enemies.
Onkel Buck: What a prick. How dare he does what he wants with his own money!
WhiskeyBoy: F50s are worth a quarter mil. Not even close to a 458.
ELMiller: Umm...nobody else is a bit concerned that the article subbed is a supermarket tabloid?
untaken_name: This just illustrates the differences between people. I would probably never stop working for such a boss.
log_jammin: untaken_name: Industrial diesel engines AREN'T for working people? Who the hell are they for, then? Are people buying them as objets d'art?um...no...they are for companies involved in industry. WTF are you smoking?
Harry Freakstorm: They called each person up to the front office and then two Maryland Heights cops walked them back to their area to get their stuff and escort them to their car.One of the cops told the newly fired and crying lady: "Too bad for you but all this extra work is Christmas money for me and my family."
jso2897: Onkel Buck: What a prick. How dare he does what he wants with his own money!And here's another guy that likes to make unwarranted assumptions.
OgreMagi: xiola: Insensitive, for sure. But it's his money.It may have been his money, but his actions shows he is a complete douche-nugget. And since the company is defending him, I'd say this is the kind of company that doesn't actually give a shiat about the employees.Unfortunately, the company doesn't make anything I need to boycott. They make diesel engines.
Callous: So what's your angle? That he bought the car with someone else's money? I think assuming that he bought it with his money is not at all unwarranted.
unitednihilists: CSBMy director slid 50 lay off packages on to the table on the 23 of December, and said he wanted them handed out by the end of the day. I took off my badge and placed it on he table beside the envelopes and said, "your choice, you can take either the badge or the envolopes back." I bluffed and won, he took the packages back to HR and the company had to pay out stat holiday pay for all 50 employees.
Notabunny: Gyrfalcon: super_grass: *insert thinly veiled endorsement of violence here*F*ck the veil.I'm all over violence here, and the more overt the better. Go, terrorists, go.Terrorists. Thptpth! You really want to scare them?[img.photobucket.com image 606x444]
Mr. Shabooboo: I might very well be incited to pee all over, or in if possible, that car if that had happened to me.
wookiemonster: [i210.photobucket.com image 640x457]
dustygrimp: I don't understand why we haven't seen a "crazy" person with a high powered rifle shooting, one at a time, every jackass CEO of every soulless mega corporation that posts record profits while laying off employees or gouging customers by jacking up prices.Instead we get assholes shooting up high schools.
HAMMERTOE: Those less well-off assume that the better-off people got that way in life by dishonest means, or any other means except for earning it, because that's how they would do it.
FarkinNortherner: is concerned.
log_jammin: obviously those 45 employees were the WORST employees ever and this company is the greatest company in the history of freedom!
Giltric: You didn't seem to understand the concept of redundant workers which the article labeled them as.
Weaver95: And I'll bet that CEO honestly believes that he is well liked by his employees....
FarkinNortherner: Giltric: You didn't seem to understand the concept of redundant workers which the article labeled them as.You are aware that 'made redundant' is an English English euphemism for 'fired', right?
stirfrybry: impaler: SirEattonHogg: Yes, but one could argue that his money trickled down to the Ferrari salesman and the auto production workers at Ferrari, and his tax dollars will go in part for the laid off worker's welfare and unemployment benefits.So, in fact, this consultant/board member is actually a good guy. A hero, even.Nailed it!/this is what Republicans actually believeActually, it seems you believe your own strawman is real.
Trance354: worked for a niche start-up soda company for a while several years ago. They are in some of the box stores now, but those first few years were lean. The whole of the company was myself, one other factory hand, the advertisement/accountant guy, and the owner. Worked our collective asses off. Boss didn't collect a salary. Paid for food and such from the company slush fund. He wasn't eating well, either, and he drank a lot of the company soda, from the bottles that didn't make it to the label machine for one reason or another(...and beer; raging pre-alcoholic). He was, IMHO, what bosses should be, in terms of sacrifice for the company. He ran with the company, put his blood, sweat and tears(and a ton of swearing) into the job, and it is finally paying dividends. While I am somewhat sad about leaving, I couldn't stay with a boss who swore that much, lost his cool so often, or came in drunk from the night before so many times. I can still see him beating the soda processing machine with a wrench when it broke down. He kept wondering why it broke so often./got a call 3 months after quitting; double my salary, full benefits, 40+ hours per week, because they kept getting layabouts in the hiring process//not worth it, for the reasons stated above///stop hitting the damn machine!
