Whistle While You Work...
The other day, CEO Joy Gendusa of PostcardMania, which is based in Florida, told employees that they should keep working through Hurricane Ian (in order to have a good end of quarter) because the hurricane was likely to be a "nothingburger." Unfortunately for her, the comments were made on video, and it became public. What I love is that, as a result of the public response and within the company, their president Melissa Bradshaw backtracked by saying that the CEO's words "weren't official company position"!!
Employee reaction was, not shockingly as I said, not positive, not just for the initial statement, but also the reversal. “There is no company worth sacrificing for,” one worker said. And another employee commented -- “She speaks for the company. She is the company. She is the boss.”
I have no idea if Ms. Gendusa is Republican. I do know that "nothingburger" has become the beloved term of disdained dismissal by the far right, after Don Jr. used the term to disdainfully dismiss meeting with with Russian agents during the 2016 presidential campaign.
