There severance speech was heartless on the previous layoff also they didn’t care. Just get your sh– out of our trucks we don’t trust you anymore. Lies told to us for years. Now who knows what goes on there, unless you are an a– kisser that’s the only thing that remains the same. Don’t care if you are a mediocre employee.

The severance package in received was a faked empathetic speech from management, a pittance, and a swift kick to the behind on the way out.

I wonder what the chances of winning a lawsuit against them would be? 97 percent of chalk changed hands and a whole new board. That sounds like change of ownership to me? That would mean a considerably different severance package.

Either way we can sit here p-ss-d off , complaining about everything and won’t make a difference to anyone. They obviously didn’t give a c-ap about us when we were there, they really don’t give a sh– about our opinions lol. They will goon living like we weren’t there. All we have is the satisfaction of is sitting back and hoping that they don’t make it..

Dilly dog,

The management has seen firings and resignations among themselves.
Many will likely never be hired again.
Not sure where you came up with the 'trickle down effect' line.

The management was paid way too much, but so were many of the lower line workers.

Remember that median income per US household (everyone in the households income combined) was about $60,000, pre COVID. Now much lower due to COVID. We were paid and received bonuses much better than the average American.

Though management is higher on the chain, they do go largely off the recommendations of their workers. And many of us did not speak up, or if we did, we did not follow through.
Many of us just sat on our a$$e$, nodded out heads, brought nothing of value to the table, collected a massive paycheck for years. Some did work very hard though.

Don't get me wrong, management did a terrible job.
But this isn't some "workers vs the wealthy, let's all become socialist" scenario.

So is this what they meant by what they called the trickledown effect. In the past 4-5 years they have slashed their work force by close to what 55-60 %. Because they can’t afford it, but all the top dogs that took more money than all the employees combined over years. Piss in them. The workers sure didn’t send them into bankruptcy. Be the man and admit your faults you losers.

So in the past 3-4 years they have dumped about approx. 60% of their employees I guess. Maybe more if you include the Kodiak takeover, we know that was a huge success. So now they have this huge office building in downtown Denver. They fired a huge portion of the staff there, now they have a empty building. This all makes sense, along with the other offices that are scattered in North Dakota 1/3 used. My oh my what a predicament . Oh I wish I could rub the crystal ball and watch how soon this place is going to go down. Snicker, snicker.

The best we can hope is that something dramatic happens and this company can’t recover.Hopefully they have to run so damn tight that operating cost supersede profits. I want this so bad and have for a year since the prick laid us off the last time. I know he is gone and it doesn’t matter but the company is still what it is.
