retrenched at 51 when hotel doing well
the chicken rice chef of mandarin was retrenched at 51, and at a time when the hotel business was picking up. or hotel business picking up but chatterbox chicken rice not doing well? if i were the chef and with a winning and famous recipe like chatterbox chicken rice, would the management dare to retrench me? they would probably beg me to stay and pay me 12 months bonus. why was he happy with a $20k retrenchment benefit? assuming it is one month for each year of service as is market practice, and he had 31 years under his belt, he will get at least $93k, assuming his salary is $3k. and he is not appealing to his union? i had a chicken rice at neptune a couple of months back. the same famous chicken rice and the same famous price. i must say, a $3 chicken rice in a good hawker stall would taste better. it's only good point is more pieces of chicken.
