upchuck revisited

upchuck wuz this feller a company i worked for sent out from the mid west to “fix” the division i used to work for.

we had a christmas banquet. upchuck gave a rah-rah speech.he axed us who wanted 50 bucks for christmas bonus. the comapny wuz a billion dollar a yeer corporation. so sure, give us the money.

jump ahead to the following october. the company is sold or bought out by black heart group. all the principles are bought out or pull their golden parachutes. i read the prospectus. upchuck got 33 million dollars and had hiz COBRA paid.

upchuck wuz on the high end, there were two +100 million payouts, a bunch of tens of millions some single millions and some just hundreds of thousands. all told it wuz over $500 million to buy these folks out.

all that heel wanted to give use wuz $50! the people who done all the work.

in some other rah-rah meating upchuck sed we would never have any high end products made in china, especially anything with intellectual value. i bailed soonafter the buy out, that being 5 yeers now.

i recently met an ex coworker in a hardware store and i chit chatted with him briefly doing a catch up. he told me the company moved all manufacturing to china retaining only QC.

it gets better, this division had went to the state to get tax breaks to retain jobs and not move them to the midwest where the company wuz headquartered.

not only did the blackheart group dump the workers blackheart group fucked the state and all the other taxpayers. purty slick trick, hey?

no one who got let go got paid COBRA. why does a guy who gets 33 million need paid COBRA but the workers get squat?
