I work for a small local pharmaceutical company run by this
dock and his daughter. We deal mainly with pharmaceutical and
healthcare products and is also the exclusive distributor of
a skincare brand.
Earlier this year, I was told there will be a pay freeze
across the whole company due to the recession. Which sounds
logical until you realise, hey! The company GREW 20% last
year. And my boss actually bought a Mercedes at the beginning
of this year!
Fast forward to May, profits are really starting to dip. Not
because of the recession but due to parallel imports being
sold in the market at a fraction of our official retail
My boss came to me for help asking me to suggest some
solutions. I couldn’t care less. When the company was making
money, I don’t recall him telling me he will give me a bigger
bounus for my efforts. If the company closes down, I will
just take a break before looking for a new job.
