Blog: Say cheese!
Catherine Sleep | 10 August 2006
It’s every wage slave’s dream – and every employer’s nightmare. “It could be you…..”, but it wasn’t you, it was them instead. ‘Them’ being 100 of your employees. ‘It’ being a major lottery win that will leave each member of a syndicate formed at Wisconsin-based Sargento Cheese at least half a million dollars the richer.
The winners are of different ages and do a variety of jobs, such as cutting and shredding cheese, loading trucks and performing maintenance. Their average salaries are reported to range between $30,000 and $50,000 a year.
So there’s no doubt that each slice of the Powerball jackpot is a life-changing amount of money. At the moment we’re hearing lots about how people are intending to carry right on working. But some will give up, and Sargento would be wise to crack on with a recruitment drive sooner rather than later.
What a great way to win the lottery though, along with scores of your friends and colleagues. And if that sounds cheesy, well, so be it.
