Outsourcing Without the Cover of Actual Foreign Workers

The global economy continues to have its affects on America. Circuit City is laying off a chunk of it's sales force. The chunk that is the highest paid. These things are almost bound to happen in the current business climate I suppose. The part that annoys me is that instead of directly giving people the option of a pay cut, they will offer them the opportunity to get their old jobs back for less pay in a little while. Stupid from a team building standpoint. Stupid from a customer point of view. And it honks off your employees. In otherwords, it's standard business practice these days. (That's a slashdot link so you can read the comments, if you dare.)
