Out of control greed - New comment on Microsoft Layoffs - Cinco de Fire-O.
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Microsoft Layoffs - Cinco de Fire-O":
As an American born, white male over 40, who was laid off 1/22 I believe the layoffs are an excuse to get rid of 1) Americans and 2) Older employees.
Ya, ya, I know they laid off younger people and minorities because I saw them when I was in the DBM training classes. But you have to realize some people got to keep their card key and some didn't. Those who kept their card key in order to access the careers website were collateral damage just for Microsoft to cover their arse against lawsuits.
So I went contract... and got laid off again. Microsoft is deflating the contractor levels IN ADDITION to cutting the hourly pay rates.
It's "out of control greed", the same out of control greed that caused this economic depression in the first place: http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/04032009/watch.html
what ever you do, don't drop the soap at Microsoft... because if you do your spokes won't be straight any longer.
