EMS chasers SMSed out

Technology sure has advanced. In the past, pink slips showed up on desks. Dot-com crashes saw pink slips in the email. Now, with the wide-spread use of SMS in Europe (and Asia), employers have resorted to sending the pink slip by SMS.

Workers for Accident Group were first asked to "check your e-mail for salary news" and then told by SMS that "unfortunately salary is not paid". How much more impersonal can it get? But then, the employees working for commission are supposedly not angels either. I believe they saw business in anyone with a limp or a walking stick!
