Lehman, layoffs and laughing

maanantaina, syyskuuta 15, 2008

I've watched some people laughing about the fall of Lehman brothers. I've seen some software developers snicker about people having to carry out boxes of belongings from offices.
Please remember that there are a lot of software developers, IT, admin assistants, phone operators, security, envelope stuffers, money managers and a lot of other people that had nothing to do with the way that Lehman handled mortgages and its accounting. These people don't have jobs today. These are people that have families, mortgages, cars, school loans and bills. They were then photographed and mocked in a national forum.
Let's take a moment to be thankful for what we have and hope that our jobs don't suddenly disappear over business practices that we have no control over.
