How long would IBM last if
All those non management staff all got up & left en mass & gave a collective finger as they went?
How long would IBM last if the only folks left to do the actual work were now managers & higher level folks whom probably couldn't count their arse cheeks twice & come up with the same correct answer both times? (Thanks for that last one Mr. Travaglia!)
If the only ones at IBM left to do any actual work were the same ones that haven't seemed to have done any, then how fast would IBM collapse into its own gravitational black hole of stupidity?
I'd love to see their entire low level workforce get up, walk out, & refuse to come back as long as current management practices are in place; no temp or contract worker touch them with a 3+Meter barge pole in a gesture of solidarity; and only manager level folks left to be the new peons.
I'd love to see the meteoric crash & burn as all IBM's customers demanded compliance with their support contracts, but IBM not have enough skilled people to do so.
And then said striking workers come back en mass to unionize & lay an opening bid on the negotiating table.
"You want us to come back & pull your arse from the fire? Then we want better pay, better retirement plans, & that bitch's body for use as a rugby sacking dummy."
I wonder how fast IBM would have to cave in to the demands of their newly unified workers before/lest their support contract penalty clauses turned their (C-level execs) "golden parachutes" into lead albatross' around their necks?
I know it'll never happen, but the thought of all those C-level execs being used as rugby sacking dummies makes me smile in a most unprofessional manner...
