    Oh noes. 30% of some of their chair-sitters in some divisions!

    I'm wondering how this even makes the news.

    The better question would be - how does a CEO allow this many "extra" people onto the payroll in the first place?

    I will bet you that some of the people that are losing their jobs were hired in the last 6 months.

    In these cases the CEO should be fired for not managing the business.

    Didn't we have someone post an article about the administration telling defense contractors to wait until after the election to cut jobs? I thought I remember reading an article here about that.

    It's better for all of us if I just go off the deep end right from the start and spew stupidness all over this place like Ron Jeremy at a porn shoot.

    Read the thread he says? Where am I, academia? The is GNG, we don't read **** here.

    Management drives the profit, not the floor workers.

    It's a bad sign imho.
