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.

This happened at the company I worked for eleven years ago. The owners later turned out to be engaging in financial chicanery, and their company went bankrupt... right after I left for another firm.

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.

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.

He wasn't the boss, he was an efficiency consultant paid a lot of money for the sole purpose of firing people because the actual boss was a huge pussy about firings that had to be done and it was easier to pay a guy 45 employees times a month of salary than put up with paying 45 salaries for the full year it'd take the actual boss to man up.

This isn't actually an uncommon thing... and it's not a silly thing, either, from the company's perspective.  Both parties kinda win.  Well, the people that get fired don't, but generally they're  supposed to be fired or have jobs that don't actually benefit anyone.
 
2013-12-04 12:42:20 AM  
An old boss of mine did something like this. We'd been three years without a raise, the whole shop. People were grumbling a bit, mostly because it was a young company, wages were several bucks an hour under market and he'd been pleading with everyone to "bear with him" for those first couple of years. He told us at several points he was going to get everyone fixed up. Hell, the business was rolling in and everyone was working maybe 6 overtime hours a week.

Then one day he came on on a shop safety meeting and told everyone that it wasn't going to happen, again. The next day he showed up with a brand new Corvette. Three welders and half a dozen machinists walked out on the spot, including his top fitter.

Shortly thereafter, he announced a policy that, if you wanted to get paid for a holiday, you had to work the day before, and the day after, plus an extra day on the weekend to make up for the hours.

So, in fact, this consultant/board member is actually a good guy.  A hero, even.


However if an angry employee were to acquire a firearm and off this hero (heaven forbid), the money from the firearms acquisition would of course trickle down to the gun salesman and gun manufacturer, plus those sales tax dollars will also help the laid off worker's welfare and unemployment.

Furthermore, the subsequent funeral of said hero would once again inject money into the economy and trickle down to the mortician and his assistants, as well as manufacturer of said coffin, hearse rental company, and so on and so forth. PLUS the inheritance tax the hero's estate would then go to pay for welfare and unemployment benefits, not to mention the monies from the resale of the hero's Ferrari and all its trickly benefits.

Heaven forbid.

So, based on that, I'm thinking that the 45 people who severely trash said car as also heroes, as their actions will allow the trickle-down of money from the rich insurance company to some body-shop owner and his employees.

Unless the company takes government money, or he manipulated stock prices, then there really is no issue here (other than the general idea that rich people should get taxed more). But this isn't even the US, so I'm sure he was taxed.

Please, save your outrage for corporations that lobby government and contribute to political campaigns, in order to get billions of dollars in handouts using taxpayer money,  which end up as executive bonuses.

The salaries for executives in the private sector tends to be on the low side.  It's those stock options that make them the big bucks.

And if you think the president gives a rat's ass about his salary, you are naive.  He's making connections now that will guarantee him more money than god.  Look at the senate.  Every single one that has been in office a few terms is a millionaire, no matter what their financial state was when they first entered office.  They certainly don't get rich from their senate pay.

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.

tbeatty: Did you think failing companies are selling their product?


working people don't buy their product because their products are not made for working people.

So it would be better for poor people if rich people didn't spend any of the money they make?

Probably, because then the day when poor people kill the rich people and take their stuff comes a little closer.


So then they'll be the rich people who are vilified for spending their money and killed if they don't spend it. And the cycle will begin anew.

What?  The "bootstraps" path to success is garbage and it's more dependent on who you know, rather than how hard you work?

Never mind.


That's still the bootstraps method. Every successful business person cultiviates relationships with people that can help them. Cracked.com explains this well in their pod cast.

Industry doesn't involve working? I mean, no, these machines are probably not being bought for personal use in most cases. But each industrial diesel engine purchased is purchased for some blue-collar person or persons to use, presumably, while working. It's not like the company makes Tiffany lamps or yachts, which was the inference made - that the products were useless to the "working people". But I'd say that providing work is useful to working people, and all of the engines that company sells put working-class people to work.

He was listed as a registered company director (with Companies House, the government agency that registers limited companies in the UK). He most likely owned the company (or a substantial part of it) and then sold it off, and retained as a consultant for a limited time.

I heard from some guy that sun block residue from one's hand will leave a lasting color impression.  This guy said  modern (water-based) paints are not as hard as the nitro-cellulose or isocyanate paints used on older cars and that they are susceptible to an ingredient found in many sun protection products, including the sunscreen.

Now, it would be a real shame should someoneaccidentally over-spray sunblock on their body while standing too close to this car.

Transference. 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. No working hard, staying in school, studying hard, scrimping and saving, deferment of pleasure for greater reward at a later time, going to bed early, avoiding parties. No, all of that behavior is for the nerds.

The nerds they end up working for, that is.

One year at a job, our boss sprang for a lavish holiday party for us:  a dinner cruise around Baltimore harbor,
but didn't actually attend.

A week after Christmas, we had a 3pm Friday meeting where he announced our office was being closed and
all of us were to be laid off.

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!


There is no winning being the boss and that isn't a position to be in if you are a people-pleaser. What people don't realize is that while some actions may seem callous and insensitive, decisions must be made for the collective health of the company. Sometimes, that involves letting some people go so everyone can keep their job. Being a business owner will likely have a very long range payout. You might not even benefit from the fruits of your labor in your lifetime, but instead your children or grandchildren will. The guy in TFA appears to be a doucher, but most people have no earthly idea what it takes to run a company. While your former boss may have just been hot-headed, the amount of stress and pressure he was under could have very well been the cause of his problems.

It's nothing of the sort. We have no information on the economic performance of Lister Petter prior to the redundancies nor of their ongoing impact on the company's growth. It is likely that short-term losses have been reduced, but if the company is unable to bid for a future contract, or unable to complete an existing contract on time and on budget, owing to its reduced workforce (and I can give you dozens of examples of that, The Butterley Company being one close to my heart) the long term impact on growth of workforce reduction may not prove positive.

Yeah, those people would be much better off if he'd made his morning commute in a '93 honda civic to lay them off.

And here's another guy that likes to make unwarranted assumptions.

How many tours you two done in the Class Wars? Seen any action or do you just sit around and biatch because life is so unfair.  I will admit I love these threads, you get all these dipshiats on here who think they can spend other peoples money better than they can by pissing it away on some broken money pit of a social program because it makes you "feel good". You know what else feels good? Plopping your ass down in a Ferrari!

I say he made them feel worse by showing up that day in a brand new douche car.  His actions were the equivelent of rubbing salt in the wound.  So yes, they would have felt better had he made the commute in an old Honda beater.

where would you say your butthurt is at?

Are you mad because people lost their jobs or because someone spent their own money on themselves? Maybe you can post your address so people can ask you for stuff since you seem to be rather charitable, at least you do with other peoples money.

Where one spends their money is their own business.  How they got it, like it or not, is usually a lot of people's business.  And if *everybody* is just standing in line for a chance to wipe their ass with all of the things that keep the society in which they wish to be viewed as a "success" in, in working order, eventually, the Ferrari is a bigger joke than the person driving it.  Everybody likes to harrumph about "the complexities of the market" until they get a chance to f*ck the dog and show off their pelf.  All the sudden, the market is staggeringly simple.  Hooray for me, f*ck you.  But that isn't what keeps the world turning for long, is it?

Forbidden Doughnut: 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.

Maybe. Compared to most of the the (European) Monarchies of the last 3 centuries however, they've been FAR more successful at getting the 'plebs to fight among themselves and to vote against their own interests. This particular class of people certainly knows the value of propaganda....


It's clearly suboptimal management. When you as a boss pull shiat like the above, a loss of productivity may occur, as might incidences of sabotage and theft. Key employees can bolt the company. While my experience of organizations is that no one is truly irreplaceable, the loss of someone really good at what they do can create headaches for a while, and also may cost the company some money.

CtrlAltDestroy: Mr. Shabooboo: I might very well be incited to pee all over, or in if possible, that car if that had happened to me.

Rookie.

- Get a whole, fresh fish or two
- Puree it with a little water
- Let it sit in an open jar in the sun for a couple of days
- Pour it into the cabin air intake at the base of the windshield

The smell will never come out.

Theoretically, of course. Never actually do this.


I didn't mention that I would eat asparagus before doing it :)
