glad you get joy in the fact that the life of my family and two young kids could be drasticly changed. you know your comments are not doing anything to blockbuster as a whole but they effect the innocent Blockbuster Employees that are just trying to make a living. The employees at the dubuque stores are all good people and work hard to keep there store profitable. so that they can keep there jobs. I use this site to read the news articles and in every forum there you are. so the next time your cheering on some one losing there job. your also cheering on some kid not having everyting they may need or the proper health insurance, tight christmas's, no summer vacation, handme down clothes,unpaid bills.

Sometimes there are some things you just can't change and, if you know that the Blockbuster ship is sinking, it's your responsibility to act and seek employment elsewhere to rectify your situation. I heard about a Blockbuster employee that stuck with the company with hopes of getting a severance package and then did not receive it when the employee was laid off. It's time to face the facts that Blockbuster simply doesn't care about its employees and, in its current state, will not make the extra effort to make employees' lives better. You're better off elsewhere and you know it.

That 'your' punctuation/grammar needs work?

Hopefully the judge will rule in favor of liquidation in today's hearing.

As someone who used to work for the company, I can say from first hand experience they do not care about their employees. Although I am sad that people will be losing their jobs- I have seen that BB as a company failed to adapt to the changing rental climate. Also- they were copycats with every successful new venture that came out. Netflix mail to your house- BB followed. Redbox kiosks- BB tried to copy (although they are not in our market). I had seen that they were talking about putting coffee shops inside their stores. Talk about clueless- reduce the cost of rentals and stop trying to jump on the next "big thing".
