All Employees




Subject: The Memo... all companies should follow this lead
Memo - To All Employees

As the CFO of this business that employs 140 people, I have resigned
myself to the fact that Barack Obama is our new President and that our
taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, I figure that our clients will have
to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8%, but since we cannot
increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our economy, we
will have to lay off six of our employees instead.

This has really been eating at me for a while, as we believe we are
family here and I didn't know how to choose who will have to go. So,
this is what I did. I strolled through our parking lot and found 8 Obama
bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will
be the first to be laid off. I can't think of a more fair way to
approach this problem. These folks wanted change; I'm giving it to them.


Sincerely, The Boss

Don't want to cut into the Bosses (CFO) Bonus,,do we, so lets fire employees instead.
That isn't how it goes for most of us.
I have never had a "bonus", virtually all my employees are gone, My personal pay has been cut 30% (by Me), and my billable time has been slashed 50% (by clients).
And I feel like one of the lucky ones.:mad:

This BO "Hate Thread of the Day" is getting OLD...:|err
Dare to expalin why your such a supporter? You wouldn't man up in PRF, how about here?

Funny that you work for a small business (Eliminator) and rely on Bob for a paycheck, but you support a man who is not on the side of small business owners. How do you support Obama, then look your boss in the face everyday?

<----- probably out of line huh?:rolleyes:

The best way to understand this is to risk everything you've got and go into business yourself. A couple decades later, you'll understand this perfectly. Until then, you'll have to use the employee's point of view. I know, the last check I drew from an employer was when I was 21. I'm 58 and not only understand the post but appreciate the re-post. It somehow never gets tiring given our current circumstances.
