    Damned if most CEOs would do this in their companies.

    These people deserve mad props.

    This was medication for my stomach after seeing the thread about the $50,000 playhouse by some corporate slime.

    There was probably a nice tax write-off involved with the franchisees, but I won't spoil a good story.

    Of course you are pissing on it, but a 'write off' doesn't mean they get a dollar for dollar credit. I 'write off' is just a reduction of taxable income.

    Its a great story despite you pissing on it.

    from the story: Rich says about a third of their employees have taken advantage of the volunteer opportunities.

    Or busy, just busy.

    I think 1/3 is a pretty decent rate of participation.

    Thank you.

    People really don't understand "tax write offs".

    If they are out of work for the summer and their boss offers to pay for them to volunteer, how are they busy?

    Do you have children? Nephews? Nieces?

    I get what you're saying. I don't think there's really an excuse for not volunteering. I think most people think they are busier than they really are. But I think that's what they would tell you: Too busy.

    So you agree with me.
    You just said that people are making excuses by saying their busy when they probably really are not. So....that means they are being lazy.
    And no kids, 1 niece and a full-time job. Still I have volunteered at least at 1 place everywhere I have worked except for here (just moved, looking for a place still).
