Branch Wars

LITIGATION VALUE: $400,000 (that classified ad just isn’t going to look good to a jury)

While I didn’t expect it to come from the Utica branch, it looks like the “the war for talent” that so many commentators have been writing about has finally hit Dunder Mifflin. Unfortunately for Michael Scott, the war simply can’t be won in a PT Cruiser. Nor can it be won by sabotaging a Xerox machine. Rather, the war for talent is won with innovative recruiting and retention practices, fair and respectful management, and strategic planning. Regrettably, these just aren’t Michael’s strong suit. After all, this is the same manager who openly ridicules his employees; who relies on racial stereotypes when making employment decisions; and who asks his employees for loans.

Luckily, this time Stanley was bluffing. But next time Dunder Mifflin might not be so lucky. And when they do finally lose the battle, the want ad for a replacement really shouldn’t say “Wanted. Middle-aged black man with sass. Big butt. Bigger heart.” But we all knew that already, didn’t we?
