I don't think Wally World is the only large corporation with serious employee appreciation issues...Our VP is still confused as to why everyone didn't enjoy the hotdogs and popcorn we got for our Xmas 'dinner' last year...Back in my retail days, one store manager could not be made to understand why a vegetarian and a Jew refused to eat the special ham dinner she had had catered for the holiday...Then there's my buddy, who received a raise of a whole .925% the year before last(no, the decimal is not in the wrong place, and no, she was not on an improvement plan or any such nonsense)...
This is obviously a can of worms here, so maybe I should go rant on my own Blog instead of cluttering up yours...*snort*
I am still trying to work out in my head a plan for the unionization of office workers...
