Letter to the Boss
Letter to the Boss
Thank you for taking the time to communicate with us concerning your thoughts about the deepening financial crisis and what it might mean for us employees.
You sound tired. Burned out. Perhaps it would be for the best if you cashed in. No one deserves early retirement more than you, sir. Enjoy your beach house and your pina collada. don't forget to send us a postcard.
And perhaps, we lowly employees will benefit as well. Perhaps the new owner won't be such a whiny, burnt out, narcissistic, bitter old prune.
Perhaps our new owner will be ready to embrace the new dawn in America. Perhaps they will appreciate our "sweat equity" as employees. Perhaps they will understand that we all pay monstrously high taxes - not just him/her.
Perhaps the new owner might recognize that we have gone 9 years in a row without a raise. That cutting our health care benefits two years ago was wrong. That fighting so strongly against the union coming in here was counterproductive and ill conceived.
I know, for my part, that I have worked as hard as I possibly can for the benefit of this company from day one. No one succeeds unless we all succeed.
But sir, you should pause a moment to thank your lucky stars that you were born into a family that could support your efforts to start a company on your own at such an early age. Let's be real - without your father co-signing that first loan, where would you be? Without your parents pulling the strings and providing the contacts early on, why, you might have had to go out and get a real job right out of college - why, if that was the case, you might very well have occupied the cubicle next to me all these years!
Then you could have complained to me about how you weren't going to be able to afford braces for your daughter because the company trimed the dental benefit two years ago. And Lord knows, your daughter needed those braces!
So, enjoy your retirement, sir!
