Praise be to God.
Now let me review this new-found religious friend:
A franchisor spends 5 years directing a publicly-traded, near-monopoly system which openly ignores, abuses and, ultimately, lifts $20,000 directly, this year, from each franchisees’ family business annually.
With more to come in 2010.
- He foists the idea that their business is worth 25% less than it did last year.
- His underlings appropriate without compensation (overnight with zero warning or chance to remedy) 100% of some terminated franchisees’ life savings because of some phoney-baloney return policy BS violation while waiting 4 months after the alleged offence happening?
- His team continues the farce of participation in a lapdog council without answering a single reasonably phrased franchisee question, for years (“Park this” takes on a new, fairly soprano meaning).
- He threatens termination, cuts an IndFA leader’s sales by 15% (we had no choice), refuses to deal with a lawful association, tries to bait a franchisee litigation response, etc.
- Leads an outfit so bankrupt of ideas that they even stoop to abscond with the franchisees’ “balanced life” model and
- Withholds any fairness $ return simply to not give credit to the franchisee group (table scraps to the help).
And we won’t even mention the link between overweening corporate arrogance and a series of public health catastrophes.
First Week of Advent: He shows up at a dock, taking home to his family $5,000 more a day than the franchisees who are obliged to attend these Wal-Martian meetings, and he thinks he can spin himself as “one of the guys”?
Just a normal, crotch scratchin’, cussin’, Buds lovin’, good ole MBA executive
Funny how a dominant, powerful franchisee association brings the sinners on home to Jesus.
What, exactly, did your teammate mean when he said:
“The natives are Restless“?
Were the franchisees or the First Nations that were the lower caste?
