The brilliant leadership at company "X" which starts with a 'Q' and rhymes with 'west' have made it a goal to double the average revenue per employee over the next quarter. Sounds like a noble goal, right?
It is, right up until the part where they tell you just *how* they plan on accomplishing their goal. They're going to "outsource" 500 employees in IT.
Now, you may ask, "How will the company save money if it outsources 500 jobs? Don't contractors always cost more money?". Normally, they would. However, company "X" is going to force those 500 employees to become contractors! That, or you'll have to quit.
Isn't that marvelous? Not only can they cook the books by re-categorizing their employees as contractors (thus doubling the revenue *per employee*), they won't have to pay out severence packages since they won't technically be employees any more. Your only other option is to quit.
In the words of Private Hudson, "How do I get out of this chicken-shit outfit?".
