Your arguments are removed from current reality and I sense that you are a management plant.<quoted text>
As mentioned before, that is capitalism at its best (or worst depending how you look at it). NMR is no different than any other company. Its sole purpose is to make a profit for its investors/shareholders. This means reducing waste and increasing margins. Plain and simple. Unfortunately, this means that there will be changes and potential WFOs along the way. That is because the waste or fat was built up over time. Just think of it as going on a diet after eating all of the holiday foods and gaining weight. Everything is cyclical, including business plans. The holiday food will return after the heat of the summer. JMO
Nielsen definitely had a lot of fat to cut and had become bloated. What is different about Nielsen is that change is being driven by such pure greed and is so nakedly self serving. Nielsen could be conducting its layoffs in a professional manner but for some unknown reason has decided to take a brass knuckles approach. Taking such a hard and cruel approach with honest hard working and long time employees does not make any sense on any level. Its possible to layoff people and still treat them people humanely. Management is laying off people in the worst possible way just because they know they can get away with it. A young child abuses a helpless animal because they know they can get away with it and in the process feel powerful over the helpless screetching animal. Sorry but doing this to real people crosses a line that was never meant to be crossed.
