World of Millennials at its Worst: Gen-Y Boss Beaten Up After Firing His Gen-Y Staff

What do you do if you kana a termination letter (i.e. kana fired)?

Do you just look for another job, or simply confront the boss on why you’re fired (because, human rights and justice, Bro)?

Well, these two millennials did what no one has done before: they confronted the boss, and even beat him up. Like, literally.

Before anything, here’s some context for people who haven’t started working full-time yet: companies can’t just fire anyone without a good reason. Before terminating anyone, they’ve to give a warning, usually a warning letter, before issuing the termination letter. This isn’t just a company procedure, but sort of like a law by MOM.

So, this Gen-Y husband-and-wife, who amazingly apparently worked in the same company, were served letters: the husband, Mr Edwin Tan who is 24, was served with a warning letter while Ms Lim Li Hui, who is 21, was served with the termination letter.

Both were business developer managers (wah, so young?), and the reason for the letters was poor work performance.

According to The Straits Times, the couple approached the director, another Gen-Yer who is only 27 years old, in the company’s open car park. The director was then with his sales manager, yet another Gen-Yer who is 30 years old.

Shit hit the fan when the director, concerned that things might get nasty and violent, got the sales manager to record their conversation. Li Hui charged at the sales manager to grab the phone, and then…they fought. Sort of, because it was the married couple who did all the assault.

The incident left the sales manager and the director with facial bruises, and the director with four days of MC.

Here’s one disclaimer: we’ve nothing against Gen-Y workers or boss, because I myself is a Gen-Yer. While we’re all familiar with Gen-Yers quitting without notice within a day, this could be one of the few that Gen-Yers fought because of a job.

World of millennials at its worst, indeed.
