    Aside from heads rolling at the top of the food chain, what about other positions?

    Chazp: Sounds like we're in the same (sinking) CNHI boat -- akin to The Titanic looking for an iceberg to run into.

    Boots: No replacements allowed, without exception; POS, out-of-date equipment across the shop, paying us here 20 cents a mile - then bitching we are submitting too much; and shit-canning our publisher for the exact reason Chazp pointed out: We ARE turning a profit (in a terribly depressed market, I might add), just not enough to match the corporate "plan"

    If CNHI is taking steps like this, others are soon to follow. Bet on it.

    Well, D-day didn't happen today. Now we've heard it's going to be friday when the "visitors" come ... This post above, of course, certainly doesn't help matters from a knot-in-the-stomach standpoint. We've been hearing these types of things, and I think my wonderful little newspaper, which puts out a great product and has a great time doing it, will be only a shell of itself when all is said and done ... We're already a shell as it is ... sigh...

    Seriously, Futura, I'm hoping the best for ya. Even if you do survive the cuts, I'd start hunting work soon. PM me. Maybe I can help.
  8. That seriously sucks, dude. How long have you been at your current shop, Futura? Hopefully it's long enough to put together some clips and get the hell out of dodge. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you survive the cuts, though.
  9. I think CNHI is going to kill itself as a chain. Even the papers that are making money are suffering under these new policies, and those profit margins are going to shrink more and more and more if this continues.

    Anybody know of any industry that grew by putting out a worse product?

    Wal-Mart? Not an industry, per se, but ...
