From the "Ethical Activist" who deprived of thousands of their livelihoods
By Nathaniel Popper
Behind the headlines about the massive layoffs sweeping the Jewish world are experiences like that of Rochelle Mancini.
Mancini worked at the American Jewish Congress for 23 years until December, when her employer learned that it had lost much of its endowment in the alleged Ponzi scheme of Bernard Madoff.
A few weeks later — just a day before New Year’s Eve — Mancini was called in late in the day and told the next day would be her last. To add to the trauma, Mancini was told that if she wanted her health coverage to continue beyond the next day, she would have to write a check immediately.
Mancini had sympathy for her organization’s unusual financial straits — more than half of the AJCongress’s employees had to be let go — but Mancini said she believes that there were simple ways to have handled her situation better, particularly at an organization that bills itself as a voice for Jewish values. “Had I had two more days of advanced notice, I could have saved hundreds of dollars on health care,” Mancini told the Forward. “Those kinds of things, when you are unemployed — they matter.”
Mancini’s experience starkly lays out a question being confronted by organizations across the country: What is the right way to fire someone?
Maybe Nathaniel Popper should know: he planned for months to shut down Agriprocessors and cause 100's (1000's for "illegals") to lose their jobs and become destitute.
Vicious Babushka has just as much, no, more education and experience than Rochelle Mancini and Herbert Lazarus, but has worked in the automotive industry instead of the "non-profit" book-shuffling old-Left entitlement world, so, can't claim benefits or a paycheck from doing from Babushka does FOR NO PAY anyway.
Did Nathaniel Popper ask himself about "Jewish layoff justice" when he conspired, with his muckraking employers "The Forward" about the thousands of families who would become destitute once he achieved his objective of destroying Agriprocessors, Postville IA, and the families of shochtim, mashgichim, slaughterhouse employees and yes, the "undocumented" workers of whom "The Forward" claims to be the champions?
"The Forward" which claims to be "The Nation's Jewish Newspaper" does not allow "talkback" or "feedback" on their pages. There does not appear to be any way to contact "The People's" media outlet. You can "contact" their "letters" section, but "The Babushka" will publish your letters in the Comments and maybe if we get enough feedback "The Forward" will pay attention.
