    I wonder if people still think the big banks’ intentions are benign now that both ING Direct and Ally have been snapped up.

    I am with PC Financial so I hope they do not have any plans to do anything drastic.

    What happened to the bank of Canadian Tire and the one Walmart was proposing?

    Re: Employee Theft (via Boomer & Echo)

    ‘Time Theft’ — I work for the government and am alloted various days off for sickness, family emergency, etc. I know people who do in fact schedule these days into their annual holidays and make sure they use every single one — sick or not. Thing is, if the employee is legally alloted these days, and uses them, then it is not theft.

    Other than gov’t/union employees, it’s rare a private sector employee enjoys the same paid days off benefits (ie. they miss work, they don’t get paid, ergo, no theft).

    As far as “coming to work late or leaving early, taking an extended lunch break, excessive socializing on the job and wandering around the office trying to look busy” goes, that behavior should speak volumes about the efficiency and management of said workplace.

    Of course there is the ubiquitous “executives cook[ing] the books to justify year-end bonuses”, such as the case with BC Hydro executives. Legal, yet, highly unethical. Resultant in bonuses for the management and decades of debt repayment and rate hikes for the tax payers. Theft that keeps on giving…er, taking.
