Sometimes capitalism sucks March 29, 2007

Filed under: in the news — Emily @ 8:44 am

I used to work for a national retail company who yesterday announced they were laying off around 3400 workers who were making too much money working for them.  I have some good friends who were affected by these layoffs; one girl who just had a baby in January and was scheduled to return to work from her maternity leave today got called in yesterday morning just so they could fire her.  Another friend had been with the company for over 12 years. 

I hope the CEO enjoys his new yacht.
