Dear Jakob Walter,

This letter is to inform you that you are terminated from your employment with
Ehringsdorfer Travertin as of 01.07.2018. As you know, we have been experimenting with robotic technology in our production chain. Since we are very happy with the outcome of our testing, we are confident that we are able to replace our human workforce with these new production methods. We will be no longer in need of human resources as of next month. However, we are proud to offer all our employees a program which includes an unlimited salary of our companies average wage in form of company shares. We also made arrangement with all sorts of cultural institutions like universities, libraries and amusement parks and theaters around the country which you can use for free from the day of your unemployment. To enter the program sign the contract attached. Please be reminded of the only condition of the program: you are forbidden to rejoin the employment market since our company’s goal from its founding in 1908 was to make people stop working. We believe human resource have been made redundant even though the employment market will always create jobs to level the unemployment rate to between 5-10%. We hope you agree with us and take the chance to find a new identity for yourself with our program. Should you have any further questions or remarks on entering our program please contact us. We will try our best to optimize the program until we will be unemployed ourselves.


Jakob Walter Head of Human resources
