Not having a party may save a job or two, but likely won’t prevent all layoffs. That being said fuck a party, I’d rather have work.

Would foregoing the holiday party really save jobs? If so, there really is no question. I can’t imagine a sane person who would choose one night of partying over even one year of additional employment. Even if that person’s job isn’t on the line, the choice seems clear. Best of luck, FCB.
