About a week ago Atlanta got hit with a major ice storm that shut down the whole city for about a week. When the news starting reporting that the storm was coming and that it wasn't going to be a typical Georgia snow storm all the local schools and businesses starting taking precautions so that their employees would not have to drive and everybody would be safe... Oh not Houstons! I have to say that I love my job most of the time, but there are some occasions that they really need to look past the bottom line and make sure that they are taking care of the people that come in there every day and work hard for them. So about 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning I got a phone call saying that we were going to be open for business and that if I would like to come in early that I could come on in. (which I said no to by the way) To say the least I got a another phone call about 45 minutes later saying that they where going to close for the rest of the day. ( I could have told them that) In conclusion I just don't get it they spent more time and energy trying to open and it didn't even work. Why do companies do this, why not just do the right and safe thing for your employees? Is it all about the bottom line?
