I own an engineering and construction business with about 40 employees. In response to changes in my local market, I eliminated a small division, consisting of four guys, of my company and repurposed them elsewhere. I offered these four guys four new positions I had created. In a nut shell, the offer consisted of restructuring their compensation package, but they are not taking a total compensation cut, but in fact in increase in some areas (two of the four got switched from a salary position to an hourly, but they got a better health insurance package. Although two of these guys will bring home a little less money in their check, but now have a company vehicle.
Anyway, my point is about their greatest concern, which they eventually expressed about 30 minutes into the conversation. They were scared to death to go home to their wives and have to "explain" this new offer to them. They told me, "what am I going to tell my wife??" Now both these men are just over 60 and close to retirement, but it is so sad to see these men express their world views and concerns from a blue pill lens. (One is my uncle and the other is one of my dad's childhood friends)
My question is, should I try and intro these guys into the red pill and where should I start?
