Are. You. Fucking. Kidding. Me.

So, our parent company declared a dividend for Q2. (They’re public, it was publicly announced, this is not inside/confidential information.) Same amount as the last two quarters to boot. The financials for Q2 will be released tomorrow morning. I’ll be very interested to see where else my damn pay cut went. Our share price isn’t even down YTD. It took a hit in March like the rest of the market and has come back and then some since then.

I am so, so salty that the employees had to take hits so the investor class feels no pain through this. (And no, participating in the ESPP would not have made up for the pay cut. I already invest 40 hours a week in this company.)

Ugh, probably should not have decided to look at this *before* work.

OK, off to go get ground by the gears of capitalism.
