It's cool that Publicis is getting Michelle Obama to talk to the groupe and stuff....but we could have had bonuses w that money! Or a gift card. Or something to support BLM. Just me?

That's what the rich do. They grift the money the employees earned and hand it out to other rich people and then tell the employees to value it. That's capitalism, baby. Eat the rich.

I also wonder like .....Michelle Obama was like “sure I’ve got nothing better to do then have an online call with thousands of random people from a companied headquarter in France that is part of a dying industry. Book me! “ or if this was some sort of favor to someone “oh for you Betty of course I’ll do anything !” Either way - it’s mega lame. Employees who work hard deserve rewards in CASH MONEY not a speech from a former First Lady (I mean an amazing person! ) but what is this a graduation ceremony?? Is she really gonna inspire you more then a $1000 bonus? More then a salary increase of $20k ? The answer is no. I have used her phrase in my salary negotiation advice “when they go low you go high “. I worked at Publicis and fought tooth and nail for every raise I got - which was a grand total of 2 in 4 years- not bad - but I had to FIGHT. I was junior so it was really like 65k to 80k which made a massive difference to me but I’m sure to the Obamas and Arthur Sadoun $15k is a sum of money so low they forgot it exists.

It's paying for that relationship with her. Whenever set it up expects some sort of relationship kickback.

You realize her speakers fee would be like $8 at MOST per employee, right? You’re not gonna get a $1k raise or bonus if they didn’t invite Michelle Obama to speak A donation would’ve been cool though.

Yea I mean you’re right we shouldn’t hem and haw over a holding company that laid off 20-25% of its staff in a year pay upward of $200k-$250k (maybe more Barack gets $600k for speaking engagements these days) for 30 minutes of a former First Lady say things like “now more then ever“ & “keep your chin up” & “new normal” & “in these times”. Yea sure maybe not enough to give bonuses and raises but ....I mean come on. It’s an obvious play to encourage Americans to feel positive and better about the future....end the year on a high note and invite America’s fave First Lady to rally the troops ! I get it I do. But it’s just not..........the move. The troops need resources/ they need some kind of relief / they need to feel heard /they need to know they won’t be laid off in March when q1 numbers start to come back . I love Michelle and no fault to her, if companies are willing to pay nearly 1/4 of a million dollars for 25 minutes of her from the neck up over zoom then she should rake that in. Plus she doesn’t even have to leave the damn house - good for her. Laura Bush could NEVER.
