Mad Men Layoffs

Good or Bad Trade: Don Draper For a Career

It was layoff mania on last night's Mad Men. Don Draper's advertising agency had to start downsizing to stay afloat, and plenty of people feared losing their jobs. To top it all off, because of Don's latest publicity stunt (a write-up in The New York Times in which he claims to refuse to work with tobacco companies because of moral reasons), Don is no longer a client of Faye's. That's because the psychiatrist's firm did not want to alienate the tobacco companies.

However, Faye seemed happy about it and considered it a good trade — although she lost one of her best accounts, she'll be able to date Don in public. Do you think this is a good trade?
