Slashdot post: Radio Shack E-Fires 400 workers. KingSkippus writes “You've got mail! …and no job! The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that RadioShack has notified 400 workers by e-mail that they are being laid off. The e-mails state, “The work force reduction notification is currently in progress. Unfortunately your position is one that has been eliminated.” Nothing says thank you for your years of service to our company quite like an e-boot out the door.”
Ow. I got laid off from US DataCenters via cellphone, as I was working from home the day they let everyone go, and I thought that was bad. (One of the best things that ever happened to me, though.) But email! That's incredibly insensitive.
