People always target their sarcastic remarks towards upper level management unfairly. In most cases, not all those people are go getters. The people that make these companies great. They aren’t the ones sitting in the same job for 20 sum years collecting paychecks for just showing up. Get rid 2 of those and you have the salary of a manager or up. The dead weight scientifically lingers at the bottom. They keep their jobs by just getting by.
I heard some good friend back east say as many as 20 were let go in one area. Most of them good steady workers. Heard they all got packages not that it will help them come 6 months from now.
