Rosauers outclasses Microsoft

The Spokesman-Review

Microsoft recently announced layoffs of 5,000 employees. If you check out http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bs?s=MSFT you’ll see that Microsoft has $9 billion in cash and another $11 billion in short-term investments. That’s over $20 billion Microsoft owns.

But Microsoft has decided that those 5,000 jobs are expendable. They will keep the $20 billion and let the employees go.

Compare this to Rosauers grocery chain’s decision to keep the entire staff of their north Spokane store in spite of no longer having a store for them to work in. Rosauers made the decision to keep their employees instead of taking the easy way and laying off their employees.

Rosauers’ decision to do this demonstrates a lot of character. I thank Rosauers for that decision.
