Today I had to say goodbye to two special ladies who, combined, served our company for almost 90 years. They were professional, kind, motherly, but in the end, unappreciated. Gone are the days of grande retirement parties and send offs from management. Gone are the days where senior employees are respected and revered. Gone are the days when companies care about their people.
This is a sign of the times. Our world is not the same. I've seen it change so much in just a few short years, and I'm afraid I've changed with it, for better or worse. I guess that's called survival.
I hope these ladies, and all of us, can look back with joy and look forward with hope.
