When you can't show that the O.R. is going down anymore because you have cut everywhere to the bone, then you need an excuse of why the O.R. starts going back up. That's why. It's all a smoke show and how you present it to others. If you present to the public as "well we cut the fu** out of our employees so we can drive the stock price up, and now that it's up as far as we think we can get it and we have cut employees and safety out so much we are having a difficult time even operating so we have to start hiring back now" doesn't sound as good as " we are going to transition into growth now, we want to grow this company". It's all in how you present it. Just like PSR BS. Imagine if they stood up told the public that " we are going cut out safety and fu** over as many employees as we think possible and then maybe a few more just to drive the stock price up then dump all our stock and retire".
