Some people coped better than others when Target up and left Canada after arriving just two years prior.
While almost 18,000 were left stranded without jobs – and then found out outgoing Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel received a higher payout than all those unemployed combined to add insult to injury – a few West Coast employees performed a musical tribute to signal the chain’s departure.
And what a fitting tribute it was.
Amidst an expanse of empty shelves and boxes, five employees of Target in Victoria, B.C. rendered a makeshift performance of Semisonic’s Closing Time as they wheeled around their former place of work.
What a great way to say ‘good riddance’…
