TARGET Hands Out Mocking Fortune Cookies To Workers Adding “Insult to injury”

  • Target employees in Michigan felt insulted by a “gift” from the Corporation after news they would not be receiving the pay raises they requested.
  • The company added “insult to injury” by handing out fortune cookies that contained messages that appeared to mock the meager raises they were receiving.
  • “I see money in your future; it is not yours though,” read one fortune. “The fortune you seek is in another cookie,” read another.

“Target employees in Michigan felt insulted by the company following news that would not be receiving the pay raises they had asked for.

And then, reports WWMT-TV’s Maria Serrano, the company added “insult to injury” by handing out fortune cookies that contained messages that seemingly mocked the meager raises they were receiving.

Serrano interviewed employee James Campbell, who described the fortune cookies they received.

“Not one of those that I read was uplifting, positive,” Campbell explained.

“I see money in your future; it is not yours though,” read one fortune.

“The fortune you seek is in another cookie,” read another.

Another fortune said the cookie had fallen on the ground.

Campbell noted the timing came after Target announced they would only be getting a $2 hourly raise during the holiday season…”
