I always get a kick out of bad managers who blame everything on the guys who just show up to work and do what they are told.
Auto industry, it was the fault of the guy putting the right wheel on Cadilac Escalades fault that the company was losing money, it had nothing to do with a management decision to make big tanks that nobody wanted and not make little cars. Yup blame the guy putting the wheels on.
You can blame the crappy workers all you want, in some cases it may even be true, who hired them ? They didnt just so up and start work, a good manager can see and pick a good worker.
If you have a clue in the 90 day probation period you can see if the person is going to work out,(if you dont have a 90 day probation period where either party can terminate employment without reason I apologize) if you choose to keep them, you are responsible for whatever they may turn into, you failed, you should have seen it, thats on the manager, not the monkey pushing the broom.
