[QUOTE=Salty_;196173]An actual scan of the letter finally made it to my ship. For the pittance they’re offering, I can’t imagine they’d get many takers. People are already fed up; if they were going to quit, they’d have already quit.[/QUOTE]
I am amused by the perspective here, and a little puzzled. As I understand it, MSC is overstaffed, and needs to get rid of people. So instead of doing what private companies do all the time(lay them off and tell them to go on unemployment,)MSC actually gives them up to $40,000 to leave? Is this a guy a year away from retirement and getting shafted from his pension, or a guy with what, 3 years in? Because if it is the latter,the deal in the rest of the private sector is last hired, first fired, go on unemployment. Am I, as a taxpayer, paying for some guy’s $40,000 parachute because he happens to work, what, 5 years, for a company and then gets laid-off? Very few Americans get that deal. Great for him, not so much for me. Doesn’t sound like a pittance to me. But if I am missing something here, please let me know.
