WOW, a man is hit by a car in front of Utz's and you don't hear a word from anyone. No updates no nothing. Very refreshing Mr. Sheppard, that is a true family oriented company. Utz could care less about you.

Apparently none of you have ever worked at RH Sheppard. Yes it was nice that Mr. Sheppard updated the public and thanked those who helped save that man's life.-At least those people cared about RH Sheppard employees because Mr. Sheppard doesn't. The employees of RH Sheppard are underpaid and underappreciated. The healthcare is horrible and the 401k is embarrassing. For a man of Mr. Sheppard's wealth one would think he would be willing to take care of those who take care of him. Rather he collects his money while he runs his "sweatshop." If the employees of RH Sheppard would travel a little farther out of Hanover they would realize this. And even the unskilled are worth more and could be getting paid more elsewhere.
Yes...it's nice he had his secretary write a nice letter to help his PR, but maybe he should take care of the hardworking employees who are making him his millions.

He might run a sweat shop as you say but than maybe you weren't such a good employee. Mr Sheppard and his ancestors have done a lot for Hanover in donations and time given. You better review the years of history. Ask Hanover hospital what Mr Sheppard does.

So what you're saying is as long as he donates to the community (which is a tax write off) he can treat his employees like crap and offer them embarrassing pay and benefits? Donations are beneficial to companies. Mr. Sheppard didn't become a millionaire by handing out free money.

He became a millionaire by making good decisions.
If anyone feels underappreciated in their job it is their choice to continue working there or find other employment and better themselves.
Sounds like you are full of sour grapes and poor decisions.

Actually he became a millionaire by screwing people over. And I've moved onto bigger and better things. I'm quite happy with my life, thanks for being so concerned. I'm just sticking up for the little man.

Sounds more like jealousy on your part.
If the little man can't stand up for himself he deserves to stay little man. Then again, maybe he is happy being a little man. His own actions plcaed him there.

Yes, you were praising him and putting UTZ down-- nice of an UTZ employee to bad mouth the company you are working for-= take the advice of the poster that advised another- that if you don't like where you work-- go elsewhere!

And the poster that commented on your ' your not intelligent' was pointing out that your should have been you're so YOU are the non intelligent-- duh!

Pete Sheppard never worked in his life, It was all handed down to him! Instead of hard work he sits on his ass & trys to figure out how to screw another employee out of their 401k or their benefits so he can save a buck! And for all the commuters that used the short cut at Lovers Lane off 194, you can thank Pete Sheppard for having it closed like the 3 other township roads that run through his property out past his Mansion by the lake!

People in this area HATE it when someone "makes money." Mr. Sheppard has a right to make as much money as he want's. What you may not realize is that Mr. Sheppard and The Rice's (UTZ) donate tons of their money every single year to help local charities who serve the local Hanover citizens. WITH NO RECOGNITION. They are entitled to the tax writeoff. But they are also entitled to keep it all for themselves. They don't have to do for others. The only thing your employer owes you is a paycheck. Don't complain.
Why don't you just try to give away your future paychecks to some local guy sitting on the corner all day doing nothing... it's painful. But "giving" back is the right thing to do. That's why they have money. But they get back 10 fold what they give. Try it.
