Today we had the second company-wide meeting about the China Flu, and
one of the questions asked was whether there would be any job cuts
because of this situation. The lady speaking gave a long winded response
which did not address the substance of the question at all, something
about employee communication, blah blah blah.
Why can't these people just be honest? It's probably too early to know
if this is going to wind up causing layoffs, so just say you don't know
and leave it at that. Why is that so hard? Who do they think they are
fooling with these long non-responsive answers? All they do is make
themselves look shifty.
