A Smith,

You're funny. You actually seem to think that the people making decisions to drive down employee costs actually care about little things like how much knowledge the staff in question have, why they're making as much as they're making and how much it's going to cost the company in the long run. Those people will be promoted for saving the company money long before the chickens come home to roost. Those chickens are the next guy's problem.

If more corporations worked the way you describe we'd have a lot less problems. Instead we get WalMart, who drive down prices not only for the consumer, but for what they pay employees and suppliers as well.

Your description only works if the world is run by owner operated businesses, by people who have something invested in the process, not hired managers with target numbers handed down from on high. Right now the marketplace most corporations are concerned about is the share price. Drive down immediate expenses to bring up the current quarter's net numbers.
