The Fairest Layoff Letter Ever!
[This letter was sent this week by a major employer here in Calgary. Do you really wan this kind of change everywhere else in Canada??? ]
As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Rachel Notley is our Alberta Premier and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%.
But, since we cannot increase our prices right now, due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off 60 of our employees, instead. This really has been bothering me, since I believe that we are family here, and I didn’t know how to choose who would have to go.
So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lot and found 60 ‘NDP bumper stickers’ on our employees cars and have decided that these folks will be the ones to let go. I can’t think of a more fair way to approach this problem.
They voted for change, so I gave it to them.
I’ll see the rest of you at the annual company picnic!
