Friend of mine who works for a power company in a state other than mine is now experiencing the fears of going through an evaluation by some other company to see who should be fired and who retained. This is insanity. The effort to save money by "purchasing" lower salaried employees to fatten a company's bottom line is mythological, I suspect. Whatever happened to excellence, valued experience, and pride of workmanship? The wheels are coming off this place...who needs paranoia every time you show up to work?
