One of the elder directors stood up and his eyes darted towards all the angry faces in the room.
"We're already so old, but we still have to come to the company to clock in? Isn't that too much?" His gaze finally landed on Jacob. The man looked like he could already pass up as the boy's uncle.
After finishing his words, murmurs of agreement echoed throughout the room as the others nodded their heads simultaneously. Since the meeting started to discuss issues that would affect their own interests, they naturally did not underestimate it.
It was a difficult negotiation and both sides were almost evenly matched. Changing the whole rules in such a short amount of time would be impossible. However, the directors couldn't remain as comfortable and free as before as well.
"According to the national rule, one can retire at the age of sixty. Some of you are already about to reach the retirement age. Regarding this case, why don't we make a compromise? Those who have reached fifty eight years old will not need to clock in and they can work at home. The rest must come to the company and clock in. How about that?"
Jacob placed his hands in front of him, acting as if he was considering everyone when he made the suggestion.
Almost everyone wore a frown on their faces. There were only a few people in the room who had reached that age. Obviously, the rest still needed to clock in.
"So, is there anyone who's going to question the CEO's decision?" With a serious look on his face, James glanced at all the people present. It was now impossible for Jacob to back down since he had already made a compromise.
The board members only looked at one another, their eyes filled with hatred met in silence before lowering their heads. Although Jacob also acted cold and ruthless in the past, he still allowed room for argument. This time was different. He was stricter now, and there was no room left for others to voice out their opinions.
Not that one of them had dared to say anything. Everyone was too afraid that Jacob would reprimand them.
"Since there is no objection, let's talk about other rules next." James nodded towards Jacob.
