5 Of the Worst Corporate Employees

1. Jared Fogel Subway
















Subway built it's business on the dad bod of Jared Fogel. However, Jared was using his Subway lottery ticket to buy his way into a fake charity. This charity was used to for him to solicit sex from minors. The guy never looked in shape and I'm surprised they used him as a spokesman for so long. Insert foot long joke here!



2. BTK Killer Dennis Rader ADT Security





















ADT makes millions providing alarm systems to protect American's from people like Dennis Rader. So, having this freak on the payroll was not a good move. Feel safe?


3. Bernie Madoff NASDAQ


























The head of the Nasdaq asks you to invest with him! It's 1999 and he is beating the red hot stock market and making his investors millions. What do say? Yeah, I thought so. This guy used his connections and lofty positions to steal like a common criminal. Way to go NASDAQ, try explaining to me how the market is not rigged now!

4. Jon Corzine State of New Jersey and MF Global


















Yes, this guy was the Governor of New Jersey and it's Senator. He used his status to rob like a small time crook. However, he had a much bigger pockets to pick. Oh and he used his connections to stay out of jail. Try that one, Martha Stewart. BTW, Martha will not make this list because there are thousands of bigger crooks than her and they are not going to jail. Boy's club anyone?

Clarks Shoes Declining Quality

Clark Shoes are known for being so comfortable and so well made.  Often they are a go to shoe for people who need shoe support.  However, lately there have been complaints of Clark's Shoes Declining in Quality.



Clarks do not seem to be carrying the high quality that they have been known for the the years past that have made them famous.  Clarks has created some other brands with their logo as well.  These seem to be of less quality then the main Clark shoes they started with and got famous selling.
