"I really loved my job and ordered two Teslas for myself, which I have since canceled."

If he's got enough money for two f*cking expensive cars I'm thinking he's gonna be just fine. Another rich turd whining publicly when things don't go exactly according to plan.

I worked at a top heavy company that started to circle the drain. Re-org every 6 months with layoffs in between. First year they offered severance packages that caused all the senior techs pack their shiat and go work somewhere else. Then it became a game of musical chairs where your performance made no difference because you barely knew who your supervisor was and your KPI's were going to be irrelevant in 3 months.
/ Year three I told my boss, he shuld let me go in the next round
// Year four I started to run my mouth to C-suits in round tables,
/// Year five I just quit

Meh.

If laying me off will save the company money, do it. It's a job, not a charity. If my efforts produce so less value than my salary+cost of keeping me as an employee....I don't want that job.

The moral of this story is, never work for a company with a high market cap.

Yeah us blue collar types have been dealing with that since the 70s. Welcome to the party.  Maybe now we can start working on guillotines?

Nope
Thats the Turd of Termination bouncing off your skull.

The wealth always trickles to sit at home stock owners.

Oh you poor baby. Work is hard. Business is hard. Think it's all kittens and rainbows to run a business? Start your own.

As an employee, you're compensated for your work. The end. You're mostly insulated from any pain the business is going through. Meet a nice girl and want to run away to be with her? Go for it, you don't owe the company anything. Your services are no longer needed? A good employer will recognize your value and try to find a place for you...you are not, however, entitled to that.
