Sacking the most productive employees

Sacking the most productive employees

A story straight from Ripley's Believe it or Not.

In a new twist in corporate downsizing, national electronics retail giant Circuit
City has announced that it's firing its top 3,400 sales people
. Why?
Because they are making too much money:

Circuit City is replacing them with sales men willing to work at lower salaries.

Doesnt this remind you of the adage cutting your nose to spite your face?
