Where are all the raises for your employees, Mr. RUBIN??? Meanwhile you take home an eight million dollar bonus for your company's profits. I have gone three years without a cost of living increase, annual bonuses disappear, all so you can give your son-in-law a Maserati.

Sound's to me like you work for the company. If your not happy where your at get another job, do something else. Your self entitlement mentality will never get you anywhere. Dont wait for something to come to you, GO AFTER IT!!! You control your life...not Helen of Troy...and certainly not Mr. Rubin.

Here is a list of cost saving measures implemented by Helen of Troy during the same period when record profits were posted and MR RUBIN received his eight million dollar bonus:

1. Mandatory sweaters on Fridays from November to March to save on heating the building

2. Replacing company cars with rickshaws pulled by the homeless

3. Subletting Product Design offices to Mama Cita's Taqueria on evenings and weekends

4. All employees traveling for business must provide their own tent

5. Removing the sanitary paper toilet seat covers from all men's restrooms

6. switching from #2 to #3 pencils

7. Replacing desk chairs in the Accounting Dept. with aluminum folding chairs from loading docks

8. "If it's yellow let it mellow if it's brown flush it down"

9. Taking away milk from the lunchroom and replacing it with imitation "malk"

10. Employees must donate all used underwear for cleaning staff to use as rags

So you see, it's not all sunshine and unicorns at Helen of Troy.

Anyway, should one man receive ten percent of the company's profits while at the same time ignoring the hardworking employees that made his company's profits (and bonus!) possible in the first place? I don't think so.
