I call this the "WalMart Business Model"

WalMart is working toward a goal of a MAXIMUM of 30% full-time employees, and the rest as part-timers. The company is beholden to the stock-holders and the price must always can they do this? By cutting everything the costs money. Sam Walton used to brag about how everything in his stores was American-made. Now look....
The company is becoming all Chiefs and no Indians...just like government.
This business model is what so many other corporations have fashioned their own models from, that it has become a trend. Those with seniority get fired first. Those who have been in the company too long (and too many raises) will be replaced by minimum-wage zombies and we'll all complain to deaf ears about the customer service...and so it goes.

Silence isn't always golden....sometimes it's yellow.
