German Worker Bees Protest Looming Pink Slip Avalanche at Airbus
The International Herald Tribune reports today that several thousand German Airbus worker bees are starting to get a hint of what the much-ballyhooed Airbus "Power8" restructuring plan is going to mean for them. And it isn't good.
There's going to be an avalanche of pink slips before this is all over.
It's quite likely that a lot of people are going to lose their jobs in Germany as well as in France and Britain if the Airbus program goal to squeeze out several billion euros worth of savings is to be met.
A lot of people who were apologists for fascism years ago always said "Well...you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs!"
Which is all very well until you're the egg, and that's the lesson here.
