Susan Marvin editorial in Star Tribune: Do layoffs help bottom line?

Susan Marvin, president of Marvin Windows and Doors, recently wrote an editorial that appeared in the Fargo Forum and the Grand Forks Herald on the issue of putting people before profits. That editorial was also published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune this weekend, and readers took notice.

Readers’ reactions to the story were overwhelmingly positive:

Those of us who reside in NW MN and Eastern ND have grown accustomed to the generosity of the Marvin family. Their company (which they have shared with their employees) and its leaders have always been a class act, and they lead by example in the community in which they live and work.

This is a very compelling letter. Wish there were more companies like Marvin Windows.
