Ahole 700 People Could Use Your Support


You might remember Mike from The Moral of the Story is from his Welcome Wednesday post her on iab.  Over at The Moral Mike does a weekly post called Angels & Assholes and this week he was kind enough to let me do a guest write up for the Asshole nominee.  This subject is very near and dear to my heart as it has caused several good friends of mine and even more extremely good people (approximately 700 to be exact), to become jobless.  So please, go and check out my nomination for Asshole of the Week, John Menard, because these people could really use your support!!!!  It would mean the world to them and me!

UPDATE: There is a new news article out from the Indianapolis Business Journal, that further proves that Menard is an asshole.   Check out the latest here.

    Id be lying if i didnt say that letter made me start bawling…. i really hope he reads it….I will never step into a menards again

    • Thank you SO much for your support, Betty! That letter broke my heart…I hope Menard reads it too, but even if he does I’m not so sure it’ll have the same effect on him as it did us.

  2. Hey Lisa,

    This is very very sad. I feel so bad for those 700 people. Honestly, I didn’t even realize that Menards still existed. That’s how out of touch I am. However, I will not support any of his companies. The way he does business is abhorred.

    It’s amazing how heartless people can be. I am just dumbfounded. However, I believe that everybody is fallen – and has to (in the end) answer for all of their doings (rich and poor alike). It all works out in the end.

  3. Omgoodness Lisa. I have never heard of Menard’s (being from NJ). I have to say that the letter just made me cry. I feel for her and for the other 700 employees. Sadly, though they can try to recover what is there’s the cost might be too prohibitive. I so wish I was a lawyer who could help out, but sadly I am only a stay at home wife who worked as an admin and hated it. The best that I can do is to keep all these people in my prayers and hope that they will all come out better than they currently are.

    Everyday the rights of workers gets chipped away at. Corporate greed is at an astounding high and yet people want less regulation of them. Many people are against unions but at least with unions you can fight back stronger like a lawsuit that they did not honor the WARN act.

    What a tragedy, 700 jobs lost the ripple effect of that will hit the community and individuals hard. And to think there were options to keep them going. I know understand your submission for him being an ***hole. I hope these people find new doors and choices open up for them as soon as possible.
