Default Re: Look Hu's Talking

We're getting emails about a donation campaign. The company matches 50% of whatever you give. The issue is this program only allows us to donate to United Way. Well United Way is a terrible organization. The CEO makes way too much, and only a certain percentage of the donation makes it to those in need. Other charities have a much higher %.

But we keep getting these emails about how our department only has 36% participation. Whatever, I'll throw a little money at evil pretending to be good. Hey, I can choose payroll deduction. It's like I won't have to do anything. Let's do a one-time payment in case I forget and give them money for the next X years. Let's go with $10.

"•Payroll Deduction donations may not total less than $20.00"

WTF?

Let's try credit card. Only $5 because you're greedy.

"•Credit Card donations may not total less than $20.00"

Fuck this. I'm picking:

"No Donation I choose not to contribute at this time"

Personal Information Donor Review
Name Haibing Hu
Status Pending
Payment Type No Donation
Pledge $0.00

God damn it. Pretty sure this info goes straight to the firing manager.

Take my $20 and like it.

Yeah, one of the companies I used to work for had a similar thing.

They didn't bother to hide the fact that any potential raises were affected by whether you contributed. They didn't outright SAY that they were... likely because saying so was not entirely legal... but it was STRONGLY implied.

HR "Accidentally" sent out a list of everyone who hadn't donated to United Way to the mailing list that includes pretty much everyone in the entire division. I knew that shit wasn't voluntary.

I will say I was never ever guilt tripped into doing it all the time I was at Petco. Though as a manager sometimes I would throw a 20 in one day here or there if we had a bad donation day, and to get a T-Shirt.

They make good yard work shirts.
