What is there to layoff people?
They need to have a little more field experience before they make judgments. Management decision based on instant stockholder gratification and not for the good overall health of the company. My contention is that it is government policy that is causing layoffs to happen and our management warned us today about upcoming layoffs. It's a mining company, so it's an old-boys club in a lot of ways and most of the people who were let go didn’t have good contacts with the management otherwise those who are management favorite, although they are not fit to stay in, they are secure in their positions.
