“No, we are not cutting back for the holidays. … We actually had a Thanksgiving party today — we hire extra seasonal staff to do application reviews.”

“Probably not going to be cutting back any because we don’t do that much in the first place.”

“No. They do employee incentives and they’re encouraging family and friends to come in and giving coupons for them.”

Dana is a pharmacy tech from McLouth...and she is shopping at a Lawrence Walgreens? How dare she. Shouldn't she be helping her employeer's business by shopping there? Unless of course....She's a SPY!!!

Yep! My employer has canceled one of the companies' dinners. It just happens to be the one given AT work - NOT the one the company rents space to have it.' So now if someone wishes to attend the company party (and you happen to work that day), you have to drive all the way across town, then rush home, change clothes, and then rush to work. And any food left over gets thrown away, unlike the dinner at work, where just about everyone takes something home, leaving nothing to throw away but the cheap foil pans the food is brought in.

Does this question mean cutting back on expenses related to holiday festivities, or does it mean cutting back the actual company?

FMT6488-Those cheap foil pans can be recycled, then you wouldn't throw anything away. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
