Scrooged! Nissan HQ Employees To Have A Blue Christmas Due To Late Pay

We never really understood why Nissan made the move to the Tennessee. Sure, CEO Carlos Ghosn can talk a big game about how he wants to locate the NorAm HQ near his new manufacturing locations — but if the need for that were true, the NorAm HQ for FoMoCo would be in Mexico and GM's would be located in Canada near the Silverado plant or somewhere in Asia. But we digress — there's now one more gripe to add to the list since the big move from sunny SoCal. On top of moving pay from bi-weekly to monthly, today employees in Memphis found out a corporate snafu is causing tomorrow's paycheck to show up sometime next week rather than, you know — tomorrow. That's just in time to make it into their accounts for the day after Christmas. Alas, it's not in time to pay for the yet-to-be-picked-up honey-glazed spiral-sliced ham from Honey-Baked. Sorry Timmy, it looks like you'll be getting cold cuts from Piggly Wiggly this Christmas. Full text of the e-mail from Nissan to employees this afternoon after the jump.
