We were recently bought by a private equity group.
Monday they gave us our new name.
Yesterday they had a big conference call to rally the troops and celebrate the new company.

We're strong and profitable.
We're gaining efficiencies.
Our future's so bright we gotta wear shades, dude!!!

[Some positions, mostly empty, will be eliminated.]

Today they layed people off.
Effers.
Bastards.
Mother effers.
I hate this sh@t; being part of
The Beast;
Multinational,
dollar-worshipping,
corporate-raider America.
I fraking hate it.
Here's my retirement plan after I get me a paddle and make it back down the creek.
Cue the Jimmy Buffet & Woody Guthrie.

I praying the cycle turns on the elephant soon.

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Just to be clear

I'm still employed. Some people I like are not. This money fueled drive to the bottom ride we're all on really frakkin' sucks.

It stinks, Leslie.

I'm sorry this happened.

Thanks, lcloud.

I long for the day when employees are people again, not resource hours.

I hope the folks who saw doors close

will see big old welcome windows open....just like Momoaizo. (Unfortunately, I think the window swallowed her.)

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Hope so, too.

They're good people.

P.S. I miss mo. HI, MOMOAIZO, wherever you are!!!!

She's been under the radar for a while.

Haven't seen her around these parts (in real life) for a while either. I know the new job had her busy busy busy and she was loving it, but was exhausted.

Maybe those who are "let go"

will find some wonderful way to earn even more money that won't involve making money for soul-sucking ingrates.

May I recommend a book?

The Anti 9-to-5 guide: Practical Career Advice for Women who Think Outside the Cube, by Michelle Goodman

It's really interesting and helpful.

Oooo...thank you

As the girls get older and don't need me quite as much I'm itching to venture out...so to speak. Will look for the book.
