    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to (new) management: this company was purchased by your masters because it made a profit every single year it was in business until the year you were hired to run it. Heads are now rolling and it may be your head next. The Simpson family never fired a single employee in 40 years and still managed to turn out profits in the worst economic disaster zones. One slow period and you guys are sucking your thumbs. Try recruiting just a few people with some zip. The success of Town Shoes was built on character and backbone not complacency, toxic environment and venomous back stabbing.
