I appreciate those cold hard facts Edge, I know they make the world turn and are required from a wall street perspective.
When I see it as a consumer however I lose mad respect for the company kicking employees to the curb without having done anything to earn the firing. Using people, unless you make it clear the relationship is temporary from the get-go, shouldn't be part of doing business.
It affects families and in the current employment situation it can destroy them. It wasn't a do or die situation for Yahoo!, heck they're gloating about their hot new partnership and this definitely rains on that parade.
