I started this job in July. Since then, there have been three new hires and five (maybe six) firings. The hiring strategy here seems to be of the “throw shit at the wall and see what sticks” variety.
The latest layoff was this week, when the only other male in the office besides the boss was laid off. Now we have a staff of nine, all female. I wonder how long it will be before we’re all having our periods at the same time. I bet once that syncs up the boss will start calling in sick that week.
Today I got cc’d on an e-mail the boss sent to our payroll department. Seems I’ll be getting a dollar more an hour starting next pay period. Woot! I guess this means I’ve survived the layoff tsunami.
