Thumbs down to Sears!

Postby Calyxes » Wed Apr 13, 2005 12:14 pm

I was reading in the paper today about how Sears sent out layoff notices to a whole bunch of it's workers on April fools day. The bad thing thing though is it was for real. I guess upper managenment thought they would have some good laughs for April fools day. Seems they could have waited to April 2nd to do that. :-t

Being they are a large corporation, they didn't even get what day it was. They were just looking at the day of the week, Friday. Still suck for those workers. :-t

What sucks worse is half of them probably thought it was a joke and went in and got humiliated in person.I would have gone postal if that happened to me... :-P

Everyone thinks that sticking it to the man is cool, but when the man sticks it to you.. it's unprofessional and cruel. Hypocrites! Good job Sears. ;-D
