Breaking News From Kargas Inc Headquarters, Senior Leadership Vows To Slash Health Care Benefits In Attempt To Cut Spending.
Today Kargas Inc CEO, Rachel Kargas announced that the company has decided to significantly cut back on health care benefits for support staff. The impacted staff are all long-term, loyal employees, having put in as many as twelve years with the company. Understandably, staff is outraged with the announcement.
Kargas released the following statement; "While we regret this difficult decision, we have come to the conclusion that the overall health of the company is being negatively impacted by rising veterinarian, err...health care expenses, and we have to cut back somewhere. Quite honestly, we have been questioning the contributions of our lower level employees for some time now." Kargas cited several examples of recent medical bills the company has been asked to cover. One staff member informed the company that she would require nearly $1000 for a professional teeth cleaning which would require anaesthesia. Another employee requested a thyroid test with a $500 price tag. This employee who wished to remain anonymous told us that he believed his thyroid test was denied because of his age, and claimed that the company was retaliating because of property damage he caused (unintentionally) to company headquarters.
The effected employees are planning a strike, but this is unlikely to persuade Kargas Inc senior leadership who claim that the workers don't contribute anything more than their good looks and are highly replaceable.
A mediation between staff on management is scheduled for later this week.
