Frummies like money




Once again, frum people are in the news trying to make the extra buck, although not necessarily the ethical way. Once again, I am to think these are the bad apples of our community and not the frum community as hole.

The story of the observant Jew trying to sue Jetblue airlines is really angry at them because he claims they fired him because he kept shabbos. I am too believe that, according to the article, that he spoke to the CEO of the airline. Yeh, this entry level customer service rep had a discussion with a multibillion dollar airline CEO. It is just very hard to believe. I think he just wants to make a case and make some money. I know some people who couldn’t get hired because of shabbos, but they moved on. Does he really think he’s going to get millions of dollars? Hell, how do I make one?

The other case I’m sure everyone heard already is the one at Touro College where staff member were accused of a scheme where people can buy them selves a dimploma for 3000 bucks. Damn, why wasn’t I told of this before they got busted? I could use a few MBA’s and Masters Degrees. I know this happens at non-Jewish institutions as well, but Touro? The popular place because their so ‘frum’ and because some campuses have the separate heimeshe atmosphere. I guess Frum jews are like everyone else in this world, with equal number of money hungry immoral thieves out to screw others.

I may be wrong, but do you have anything to indicate that the people who were charged in the Touro incident are frum Jews?

There are non-frum and non-Jewish people who work in the records office too.

Indeed. Based on your grammer I assume you graduated from Touro yourself. Touro does a tremendous service for those either too lazy or disinterested in studying the liberal arts and allowing their entrance into the workforce. I admit I too have diff with grammer compared to my colleuges, though I never went to touro.

BrooklynWolf said...

Nope. Sorry if my grammar displeases you. I'm am a college graduate, but not from Touro.

um ya so i was just discussing today how some frum places totally take advantage of the summer youth core program where ur sposed to be payed for 3 hours of education in addition to ur job so where i work u just sign that u learnt the stuff and u get payed, so when asked the lady was like we just assume u know it...bull! but heyy im getting payed right...? and then i was talking to my friend who works at a non jewish place and she was complaining about having to lug her self to a three hour seminar for youth core and im like bugger!

Wolf, at least one of the ringleaders were nominally Jewish.

Regardless, having attended Touro myself, this makes me feel uncomfortable.

The college took care of me and I am very grateful.

All we need is one frum person to make a chillul hashem. In addition, its a jewish institution, and its management shouldve done a better job making sure these scams never took place. Maybe they did know and kept it quite.

Jacob Da Jew said...

"Maybe they did know and kept it quite."

Bullshit. I know the management personally for quite some time, both myself and my wife graduated from Touro and it is an outstanding institution.

Yes, all we need is one frum person to make a chillul haShem.

However, I was never a proponent of "We are So better than THEM". Frum and/or religious people are human and some of us are capable of being scumbags.
