"I have seen lots of excuses for why people took it upon themselves to call in sick, such as low morale, poor management, anger over pay cuts and frustration with labor negotiations," Lakefield said. "None of those excuses passes the test. We all have our jobs to do."


Dear Bruce, what’s your excuse?

There’s a point beyond which you can’t push,
pummel or threaten.  You may not see it,
but even those who don’t work under you
realize that you and your executive buddies have gone
past it.  

Happy Holidays.

Yet, several weeks after this report, it would seem that realization, and perhaps some nervousness has set in, that the anticipated retirement for airline employees is going to be cut in half.  Maybe they were all out looking for employment that won't be cut in half in the years to come?

“WASHINGTON — Franklin Raines, who was forced out as Fannie Mae's (FNM) chief executive after five years, is slated to receive a monthly pension of more than $114,000 for life, . . .

Federal regulators have asked Fannie Mae to hold off paying out any compensation to Raines until they have time to investigate the package, and whether it was appropriate for the federally chartered lender to let Raines retire early rather than be dismissed.

An additional point of contention is Raines' retirement date. According to the filing, "Mr. Raines has asserted" to Fannie Mae that his retirement is effective June 22 — enabling him to receive an additional $600,000 in salary. That scenario also would add $100,000 to Raines' post-retirement monthly payment. In the filing, Fannie Mae did not agree to those terms. . .

The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, or OFHEO — the company's chief regulator — pressured the board to act after the SEC said the company must make accounting corrections that could erase $9 billion of past profit dating to 2001.”

It’s this kind of never the less profiteering that drives the employees to indifference.
It sure to be happening at US Airways.  Executives get sweetheart deals that guarantee
their prosperity regardless of the merits of their performance; it’s the grunt at the
front who gets it in the neck.

LOL. There's a simple solution to that, John. All the grunts should immediately get jobs as executives.
