Gee, you pack 500 the next day, instead of 1,000 the next day. Apparently the point was really hard to figure out.

 

Don't be dense.

WEO is far from dense

Unsure if you’re trying to prove a point here or just citing another good landlord. 
 

If you’re just citing another good landlord, good for him! 
 

If you’re trying to make a point. You didn’t. In your situation the other landlord gave no pass on rent to his tenants and told them they might have a place to live when this passes. Then gave a ton of money to the guys across the street for relief. But it’s a donation so he’ll get some of that back. 

 

What in the ***** are you talking about?

My point is, my employer is guaranteeing pay for 10,000 employees and is worth 20 % (about a billion) of what the Pegulas are worth. 

Hard to determine the total number of employees the Pegulas employ, given that they have so many different businesses, but it isn't 10,000... and again, they are worth $5 billion.

I get this, but they need to be taking care of the employees. My company has 10,000-plus employees, most of whom work on a strictly commission basis. If the company isn't bringing in money, we're not getting paid. But the owner/CEO/chairman of the company is vowed that not only will we not let go one single employee, they are paying EVERYONE their (almost) normal pay. All ten thousand employees. Hourly people get their full pay, commission employees will get 80% of their normal pay, regardless of if we work a single hour, and regardless of how slow our business is. 

 

THIS is how an employer should treat people.

The lease on my 4Runner is up in a couple of months and I've always planned on buying it outright (long story).

 

I recognized that name as having dealerships in Atlanta, and just did some googling and found Hendrick has a Toyota dealership, AND it's right around the corner from my work.

 

Since I originally leased from a dealer in NY but am now in GA, I can pretty much choose who I go through to buy the truck.

 

I'm going to Hendrick Toyota.

That's awesome, man. I'll tell ya - not to sound corny or to sound like I'm "drinking the kool-aid".... But Mr. Hendrick has always said - "If the company cares about its people, the people will care about the company."  And it's true. Once we come out of this Coronavirus madness, these people will be willing to go to war for Mr. Hendrick. At a time when other automotive companies are laying people off by the thousands (our big competitor, Sonic Automotive, has laid off almost half of their employees), Mr. Hendrick has made it a point to ensure that his people and their families are taken care of.

I work for a similar family of multi-billionaires (worth far more than Hendrick and Pegula combined), and they got there by always treating their employees better than any other company. It's even in the founder's will. Specific instructions on how to treat employees and give back to communities. So it's always good to see!

Jeff Skinner announced on his Instagram that he’s donating $53,000 to the fund started by Terry and Kim Pegula last week.

Skinner said he wanted to help health care workers, as well as FeedMore WNY as the fight against the coronavirus rages on.
