What is worrisome about this is 2 fold.
Both gentlemen post the same joke, days apart and both get the math wrong, 8% of 140 people is 11.2 people to be laid off.........
The CFO has determined that their costs will increase such that they are going to have to raise their prices 8%. Or, by further calculation, the CFO has determined that they can tighten their belts and reduce their overhead by laying off 6 people; whatever amount of money that is, it equates to 8% of their gross.
It's not 8% of 140 people, how are you possibly drawing a direct correlation between the number of employees, their salaries and benefit packages to reach that conclusion? This is as apples and oranges as it gets.
Whatever you're drinking, you've had enough for this episode.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
