Circuit City Slaughter: Seniority Means a Pink Slip

Ask a Republican and they support WalMart and Circuit City and were great admirers of Enron, before they got caught. Barbara Ehrenreich:
Once you fire the high-performers and experienced workers, the next step will be to demand that employees pay you for the privilege of working. Why not? Most workplaces provide air-conditioned environments and bathroom facilities, complete with soap and paper towels. These are things you'd expect to pay for in a hotel, so why should workers get them free? Having busted his $10-20 an hour senior employees down to $7 and change an hour, Schoonover's bound to see that the best route to higher profit margins is negative pay.
Janette sent me this.
