In The Big Short, Michael Burry has a recurring assistant character throughout the movie. As his firm continues to lose money, the staff dwindles until only the assistant character is left. He asks Michael Burry why he is wrong.
Later, once Michael Burry is successful, you see the assistant in a convenience store stocking Red Bull (you can see the clip here). My question, is why does he end up in this position? What inference are we supposed to have made? I seriously cannot figure it out. Is it implied he lost faith in Michael Burry and quit?
