Of course there may be more to the story.Boeing has to compete. It was great for them when our wars were pumping lots of money into their company. They were able to hire a bunch of unnecessary management types and not worry about how they leach from the company without providing anything. now they have to let those people go, and good riddance. We can't just keep having expensive wars so they can keep making military equipment. It is true, they cannot afford to pay health care for useless managers on top of their salary. So they make themselves more efficient and are not overblown.
It is the correction America needs to be leaner and more efficient. It is time for people to work, and if you can't do that then you don't deserve the big salary. The useless can sit at home and live off of welfare. they can sell their big cars, huge houses, and live in section 8 housing. With less people there Boeing and other companies will actually have to keep their hard workers. Lean companies have no use for the guys who spend more time and effort trying to figure out how to not work. After years of covering for their useless asses while they make the same or more than I do for far less work, I don't give a **** if they rot in the gutters with the other useless people.
Let me put the hierarchy of uselessness in simple terms for you.
You have the workers who 50 percent are useful. Then you have a team lead who manages the workers and issues. They normally get the brunt of the work put on them. Then you have a stupidvisor for your department. They pretty much are a copy of the team lead, but their job is to go to meetings while the team lead does the work. Then you have a multi-department stupidvisor. This person doesn't talk to employees, and they pretty much kiss the ass of some VP at meetings. They do some budgeting, but often that falls down on the recommendations of the team lead. Then you start getting into the executive level. The executives have concerns about expansion and profit decisions.
So really as a worker you have 1 team lead who does the management, and 2 other stupidvisors or more who get paid a lot of money to do nothing. Kill off one of the middle stupidvisors, and just have one stupidvisor deal with multiple team leads. Really, you end up cutting the individual department stupidvisors and can get rid of any number of completwely useless people who don't do anything. You have to remember all those stupidvisors play a game called try to keep your job. That is their big responsibility to try and justify why they work there by stealing credit and making up bull**** work.
Losing these people is not a bad thing. They actually reduce productivity. They normally do not work together and come around to people doing the job and tell them 3 or four different ways they want things done, none of which correspond with what the others have said, or what you need to do.
Oh, and if we don't want to pay their welfare we can do like the japanese and make fatal game shows and make the fat useless twats compete and die. We could call it the hunger games or something and make money on entertainment where people get to watch their old annoying stupidvisors fight to the death.
