It is the elite club of whipped workhorses when sales are down in your industry.
The staff is already too small to cut from, so corporate will take five percent of your pay to offset what they call "loss"
Technically, it's not a loss at all.
Just less profit
already lining their
pockets with your grocery money.
Everyone could still
win, but won't.
CEO: We've had to make
decision today. Sales are down. To make
up for it, everyone will
take a 5% cut in pay until further notice. We will
as a whole. Everyone is important to the team. We are a company of people. People are our biggest resource. Without our people, we are nothing.
Workhorses: So we're all now five percenter's. At least we still have jobs.
CEO: Fire one person from each market.
Workhorses: What an ass.
