Fixed that for you. Any halfwit can run a company into the ground, and I'm not going to list examples because that's too easy. All you have to do is claim that it's to "improve shareholder value" or some nonesense.

But I'm sure these CxO's are far smarter than not just each employee, but all of their employees. I wonder what would happen if they listened and kept their best people through thick and thin? No, that's stupid, a bonus today is worth more than anything tommorrow.
