Sniveling Sears Pays Execs Bonuses While Eliminating Severance For Workers


Punishing loyalty while rewarding failure

Sears Canada is betraying workers who gave their loyalty to the company, while rewarding the same executives and top managers who led the company to failure.

Sears is cutting 2,900 jobs, and isn’t paying any severance to those workers – many who gave decades of service to the company .

And yet, Sears is giving $7.6 million to 43 top execs and senior managers.

Disgustingly, Sears says the huge bonuses are “necessary to keep key staff.”

This is similar language to what Bombardier, not to mention the big banks after the 2008 crisis, use when giving out huge bonuses. It’s total BS. They say they need to pay for top talent, but if the talent at the top was so great they wouldn’t be declaring bankruptcy in the first place.

It’s a total fraud.

What’s really happening is that the pathetic failures who ran Sears are stripping the carcass of the company to enrich themselves while disregarding those who actually kept the company going as long as it did.

And not only is Sears Canada refusing to give employees severance while paying massive bonuses to executives, they are also cutting insurance and health benefits for many employees – benefits they were guaranteed in their contracts.

It’s disgusting, and if those Sniveling Sears executives had a shred of integrity they would refuse their bonuses and pay the severance Sears workers have earned.

Don’t hold your breath on that one.

  1. Could Sears front line staff put a lien on the stock in the stores to encourage the “key staff” to make a decision on severance?
