It seems some companies don't take very good care of their employees.


The year that my husband didn't get a raise after exceeding all the impossible goals management set out for him, the CEO got a 23 million dollar bonus.
It's a really bad job market on Wall Street. There used to be a very large take-out place on Wall Street that went out of business. That was shocking because it was located right across from the stock exchange. A long time later a new take-out place opened up and that also went out of business. One wonders "where did all the people go". Well, automation has left many who used to work on the floor of the exchange, without jobs. They have to find other types of work and in many cases they are not suited to doing anything else. It's a tough time for people everywhere no matter what you do for a living.
