Bad Business Decisions

Circuit City is getting rid of "overpaid" workers" -- workers making about $11-12/hour. Not because they're bad workers, no, they're probably the best employees they have. They're getting rid of them so the store can hire cheaper, less-skilled new workers. This is not the way to make money.

Giant grocery store is cutting back on fish shop employees in 50 of their stores. They'll be leaving packaged fish in refrigerated cases. A lot of people don't want to buy fish from cases -- they want to be able to talk to the employee about it. Some stores are looking for too much profit.
