OK, let's have a chat about Pacific Brand. You know, the sackings and the Exec pay rise.
Maybe they should give the media liason officer in P.Brand a pay rise. How would you like that job, explaining this most immoral behaviour to the media and public?
Funny thing is, P Brand is a very badly run company. Too many piss weak brands that do not make money. If I were running that company I would get rid of the crap brands, limit the number of products made, concentrate on quality and the inevitable cost savings & profit increase resulting from rationalising the products. It strikes me as very strange, giving an obscene pay rise to Execs of a company that is probably going down the gurgler. But I guess thats the way companies are run these days by the execs - short term avarice and greed, and take as much dosh as you can before sticking it up the shareholders.
Maybe the board of PB should have a look at the way R.M. Williams is run.
As an aside, I wonder if the quality of their stuff made in China will be as good as the Aussie made stuf. Actually I have always bought some of their stuff (eg, Jocks & Yakka) because of the quality, not the price. If their Chinese made stuff matches other companies stuff made in China, ie generally it is crap, then I will be sticking their jocks up their bum. So to speak.
