What would you do?
A team leader (she) at a distribution center gets promoted to a operations manager role by the general manager (he).
The team leader asks all the associates on the distribution center floor to 'contribute' money to buy a nice gift for the general manager for all the 'amazing' work that he has done.
The gift is an expensive jacket, that costs around $1100. The associates are all newcomers to the country that earn minimum wage. (around 25 who are full time, and 20 who are temp workers).
The gift is bought and given to the general manager. Unknown how much was actually contributed by each person...or paid by the operations manager.
The general manager is seen wearing the gift after 2 days.
Is this right?
