ralpho has a point. In the situation above, Wally would definitely be hosed for making insinuating comments. It is funny, ironically, but sadly true in many aspects. The laws we create to improve equality end up in turning the tables the opposite direction. EOE is another demonstration of that.
Frighteningly accurate. The CEO lied about investments in mortgage back securities for 9 months, was driving force in pushing nearly 100% of our cash into them. The company is sold to a venture firm, the stock drops like rock and many people get let go. Sadly, he got a huge chunk of change, free lawyers for life, full pension and deferred compensation intact. Best yet, indemnified in the event wrong doing is found.
No increases, the good people leave, the wheels begin to come off the cart. Those of us who stay hope to get in on the generous separation packages being offered. Actually, I feel sort of cheated out of seeing executives on trial and sentenced to prison.
Wally knows how to push her buttons. The hot lady can now be fired for losing her cool. But that won't likely occur. The codes of conduct are weapons of women designed to be used against men. America is divided in so many ways--rich vs poor, race vs race, and women vs men--it is difficult to see how it will hold together much longer.
