You think that IBM is actually that sensible? No. It will not be the under performers that get sacked. This is all about the money. The people that are actually worth having around are considered "expensive". The guys with experience with IBM, experience with the client, and a proven track record will be the ones shown the door.
I have personally witnessed this myself.
Also, salary/hour reductions for the outside contractors is nothing new.
