2016 year book
Hi acording to the 2016 year book the borg sent 6,000 people from bethels around the world "home" i think they might be struggling a bit LOL
Who knows, some may be here in this forum already.
I've heard it said by some how Bethel "was the best career you could have, nothing would compare to its retirement plan".
I'm sure it's been a rude awakening for many bethelites.
Can you imagine what uproar there would be if a corporation with a workforce of 26000 just made around a third of it's workforce redundant in a few months, including many with years of service?
Can you imagine the disgust of people when they heard that those sacked were left without homes or jobs and given just a small stipend to cover a few weeks?
Can you imagine the fury of the customers of the company at suddenly being expected to jump in and house, feed and employee these ex-employees?
Can you imagine any of those ex-employees then going back to appear in corporate videos thanking the company for sacking them saying how happy they now were?
The WTS has pulled off a master stroke of HR management here,
As a "religion producer"*, it was easier to do and required not mastery over PR but mastery over slave labor.
* I actually read that term in an article years back about religion's place in the economy. Economists found that religion pulled people away from producing more, but also gave them essentially a product they could believe in. I think it was in Time but I'm not sure. I'm pretty certain this religious product in particular did not help the economy at all.
