When you do the work and you don’t get paid for it, it’s stealing.
I have worked as an hourly employee since I was 14. Plenty of employers stole from me through the years and I was powerless to do anything about it.
On June 3rd, the Colortree Group abruptly closed their doors without advance notice to their 240+ employees and vendors. Employees had 15 minutes to leave the building many of them have worked in for 20+ years.
In the days to come they discovered their insurance and retirement funds were also gone.
Stolen. Those people worked hard to build and grow the business and were suddenly left with nothing they had built.
My wife was one of those people as well. She’s worked with them for more than 11 years developing software and business growth solutions through her consulting practice. When we fully realized the scope of the closure, we decided we needed to help and our event was born!
I think this is one of the best things about owning my own business – I have the power to help other people. Can you help me help these folks? I promise, you’ll have a great time while you’re at it!
