Labor Day Thoughts…

Lily

Would you do me a favor if you stop by today? Please read one of my archive posts. This is in connection with “Some Gave it All” and today was the deadline to submit the entry…So, here is my tribute to Brian Matthew Kennedy.

On another note. What were they thinking? RadioShack laid off 400 people in their corporate office in Texas. It is not that they laid off, but how they laid off their employees. Via email. Now – that is just very sad that they didn’t had the gumption to tell them in person…

Hope you all have a wonderful and save Labor Day…

PS: Don’t forget “In Other Words” and “Tackle Tuesday” tomorrow…

    Unbelievable! It does seem like a cowardly way to let employees go, for sure!

    That is so bad…To lay someone off on Labor Day! I mean, the day is for the working class citizens to enjoy some time off, but not lose their jobs entirely!

    My husband used to manage a Radio Shack. He and several others that had been with the company a long time were fired and people right out of college were brought in to manage the stores. Radio Shack never would let the managers know why they were fired…some went on to bring suit against RS…we decided not to because it was an incredible hassle and we felt that the job loss was actually a blessing….so I’m not a big RS fan…strange how they treat their employees.

    oh, btw, thanks for visiting my blog! lol!!

    Unfortunately, email seems to be the new way to handle mass layoffs. How impersonal can we get?

    Wow, layoffs via email. You can tell we’re in a “new age”, eh…

    My husband mentioned this too (he’s a techie type). I guess that’s how electronics companies do layoffs these days. Not nice!
