"lets be brief....inspire to do well.negotiate contracts with unions(we are fighting for your future),climb the work ladder and progress within the company?who's idea is it to do these things?.wonder how much bonus the ceo is getting this year?.I am involved in such a class action myself. This is telling the workforce of America.it don't pay to be a team player and be rewarded for your service in the workforce. It don't pay to climb the ladder.or to improve the company your working for....your reward???...you've improved us tooooo much.now you are overpaid???.over paid??.what is that these days in middle class America where most still are just above poverty level"
Now, as tempting as it might be to dismiss this as uninformed economic paranoia, I think capitalists ignore it at their peril. The ugly fact here is that Circuit City executives have stolen a page from Sunbeam's "Chainsaw Al" Dunlap in open, merciless cost-cutting, apparently without taking into account the offense that would be taken.
In other words, they don't understand their customers, and this goes a long way to explain why Circuit City is getting their clocks cleaned (the VCR ones that blink because we don't know how to program them) by Best Buy and Walmart.
