Ok, it wasn't diplomatic, business saavy or polite, but I'm glad this guy said it out loud, and sorry his whole family and all of his employees and suppliers are having to pay for it. Anyone in Banff, Alberta need wholesale gourmet food?

I wonder just how fired he is. I imagine he'll be ok. I can understand wanting to save the company. It's nice to imagine one would stand up bravely for this principle, but it is a terrible price she is being expected to pay. Recriminations from relatives for losing the family business, from employees for costing them their jobs, from suppliers who will have to either lose their business or else everyone else's, as well as losing her own job. I haven't had to face a choice like that but seeing it written down makes me think I'd try to find some weasel way to cut myself loose from the whole affair. I'm ashamed of this, but I can't blame anyone else for capitulating. My assumption here is that they more or less agree with him, of course, and that's just my assumption; maybe they do suck. I really hate the unearned power these perverts have.

The problem is that this is solely kept going by the capitulation. If everyone just stopped that, it would fall to pieces.
