For some reason, it seems like horrible bosses just think their employees will disappear if they cut their hours. This boss had no backbone and thought that by cutting his employee’s hours, he’d get rid of them. First, they worked 30 hours, then 20 hours, and then 0 hours. He tried to cut his hours down one by one.
Maybe he thought he wouldn’t notice? It’s a pretty big cut to go from 30 hours a week to 0, especially if this is your only source of income. We get cutting hours back if you’re low on budget, but cutting them down to zero just equates to firing someone. Unfortunately, cutting hours to get rid of an employee isn’t how it works. Instead of coming face to face with his employee, this boss just disappeared. It seems like he got what he deserved, though, since he was let go several months after this Reddit user quit (via Reddit).
