    Someone might want to move this into the News forum... I don't have permission to post there.

    For you guys in the States:

    Circuit City is seeking court approval to liquidate merchandise in its remaining 567 stores: link

    Loss of 30,000 jobs. Guess they shouldn't have gotten rid of their knowledgeable salespeople, eh? Horrible management decisions.

    The liquidation starts Saturday, and they'll be gone on March 31.

    It's always the management, they come up with an idea, they are told it won't work by the staff but they just ignore the advice and carry out their ideas only to have it go badly wrong (at that point the managers leave with a big payout) and then the cycle starts again.

    Same problem with Royal Mail over here, bad management decisions leading to more problems which lead to more bad decisions (and an increase in management levels to try to cope, in my office we now have a manager for every 11 staff and other offices are worse).

    Add that to the already crappy economy and we're back at a flood of IT/computer people and no jobs for them.
