This will not protect you against this kind of actions.CoffeeCustomer wrote:So much for whatever compassion my post had.
If you recall, we had a poster who got sued a couple of years back, I think about a motorcycle part or service.
While I do have compassion for the people who work there, not so much as to risk a defamation suit.
Is there a reason for you taking this SO very personally? It seems more than a little unnatural.CoffeeCustomer wrote:So having said all that, what about the general premise? - Should a company that puts emphasis on their people cut them wily-nily like this?
One one hand I know all too well about the realities of corporate existence, on the other, this just reeks of something repulsive. I say that as a customer, and maybe my reaction doesn't have to have a basis in understanding the realities of the business world. Or, maybe I'm just being silly and idealistic.
If you were a patron of the company, would you remain one?
From their website:
People. We employ almost 200 people, the vast majority of them degree or diploma holders or in school working towards that. They all have a few things in common -- bigger smiles, better pay, and better love for service. It's that simple.
Yeah, I found the whole 'Genuine Canadian Pizza' thing a bit strange as well when I moved here. And there was me thinking pizza was an Italian invention.zzm9980 wrote:I find it funny with chains like this. San Francisco coffee? Really? They're even from San Francisco!

Welcome to the sad reality where everyone is expandable. No one is an asset, and the bottom line is all that counts.CoffeeCustomer wrote:I don't know about taking anything personally, I do know that today I said goodbye to 10 people I could call friends who I've seen every weekday for over 5 years, who all lost their jobs at once and without warning, and who are understandably upset, having to look a stack of flyers on their counter that say "WE ARE HIRING! The place where real people serve........blah blah blah".
Perhaps that is perfectly natural for you.

So in answer to your question, would I patronise a place when they sack my friends - probably not. If they sacked faceless staff - no problem.
