Helping those less fortunate and in a bind is a good thing. Taking away from your employees to do it maybe not so much.


I think it was lost in translation...

Pretty sure they mean they aren't doing "Secret Santa" or giving gifts to co-workers. I don't think they mean Xmas bonuses to staff or something

Yep. That's how I read it (and the one that makes sense). The other option is just evil (taking from employees)

They said "individuals we work with".....working "with" is the collaboro-speak version of working "for". Individuals gives the final clue, rather than "businesses" we work with.

I don’t believe it is as sinister as some think.


Exactly!

If it meant the employees then it would have said "individuals who work for us".

Then again Castanet reporting isn't known for it's great choice of wording, or spelling for that matter.

A person almost wants to wonder if it is a sophisticated and deliberate ruse.
What did Forrest Gump say, "Stupid is as stupid does."? I think dimples has a new campaign slogan.
