“I cannot accept this number. If you accept that number, you sell your soul to the devil,” Slonopas told ABC News.
According to Robert LaCourciere, the vice president of sales and marketing for Contech Casting’s parent company, Revstone Transportation Group, the tax forms are generated by a computer at an outside company. “We are certainly sorry he was put through all this,” LaCourciere said. “We hope he does contact us because we’d love to have him back at work.”
Slonopas said he feels no animosity towards the company, but doesn’t understand the mistake. “My question is, are we working for the computer, or is the computer working for us?”
