I just found out that one of work friends, Tim, was let go. His boss called him into his office right before the Christmas party to tell him that they’re restructuring the company & that his services were no longer needed. The strange thing is that he’s one of their best, if not THE best. He made the company $3 million this year on just ONE of his promos. Based on revenue reports, he’s made them more money than anyone there!
For some reason, his boss doesn’t like him. We’re unsure why. He’s shy, so maybe he doesn’t go out drinking with his boss & coworkers often? Or maybe he doesn’t suck up to his boss? We don’t know. But, as of today, three weeks later, nobody else was let go because of “restructuring.” It’s become evident that “restructuring” is just an invented reason to get rid of him.
Unfortunately, we’re not surprised. They’ve been known to resort to these tactics when they try to get rid of people they’ve grown to dislike. Most recently, it happened to the girl who replaced me.
There’s not much we can do about it, but I’ve heard that the company has many lawsuits against it for fraudulent claims, false advertising, and who knows what else. (They’re a financial company.) I’m really hoping that the SEC (United States Securities and Exchange Commission) finally shuts them down
