How in FUCKS NAME do companies think they can get away with fucking shit like this?

I tell you, the day is coming, soon I hope, when the directors of these companies that pull stunts like this, will sorely regret treating their loyal workers in this disgusting fashion!

Should be a crime.

Perhaps the fired employees can stake out the front door and "greet" the new employees "Union-style."

Won't be long for the rest to follow suit.

But supporting globalisation and the importation of slaves to keep local workers cheap under the guises of "multiculturalism" and "immigration" is good for your soul.

Stores like Circuit City capitalize on the uninformed consumer. Otherwise, there is less of a need for all these store workers.

ok wanna know what's going down?

well, i'll tell you anyway..........

those who make the least in our society are being abandoned, just like in katrina, but only financially.

next up will be social benefits like health care and pensions. if you're relying on those benefits, especially as you age, you will eventually be left on youre own.

once this class of peole is finished, next up will be those making merely $100,000 per year. you're safe for now, but in about 20 years, as cutbacks filter into your wage bracket, you will find youraseklfs in the same position as the poor are in now. unless you can keep up with future escalating prices. if you can't, look at downtown detroit and you'll see your future.

basically in a nutshell this is what's gonna happen.


drudge briefly had a blurb up yesterday where tax data waas showing the concentration of wealth is the worst it's been since 1929. this fact is easily digested when one only looks at three key economic trends:

1. ceo pay, 10x workers' pay in 1980, is now 430X workers' pay

2. the median wage has increasd only 17 cents since 1981

3. house prices, historically 3X family income, is now up to 10X family income.


this is all you need to know.

yes, game set and match and yes 1929. heard of the phoenix? well, western nations will be demolished and a new social and financial order will rise from the ashes. once the smoke clears it will be easy to see a class of haves and a much larger class of havenots, with all the new necessary laws in place to keep it that way.

surveillance, tracking and private security will enforce it and economic pressures will keep any other dissent from rising.

divisivness stoked by tptb will keep people from forming a large collective, which will also be checked by laws against assembly (free speech zones, anyone?)

North America's second largest consumer electronics chain today announced more cost-cutting, including the potential sale of its Canadian business.

Circuit City Inc., said it has asked Goldman Sachs to help it explore strategic alternatives for InterTAN Inc., which could include the sale of the company. InterTAN operates more than 800 stores in Canada under the name The Source by Circuit City.

Many of the small mall-based stores are former Radio Shack stores.

The decision comes amid increased competition in the consumer electronics market.

Circuit City also said today it is firing 3,400 higher-paid store employees and replacing them with lower-paid staff.

Last month, the company said it would shut 62 Canadian stores, and eliminate 290 jobs, including about 70 at InterTAN.

The stores were unprofitable, the company said.

The moves come in the wake of stiff price competition in flat-screen TVs, a popular holiday purchase, as even stores like Home Depot jumped into the market.

The company said it planned to discontinue certain product lines in Canada.
