    IBM practices age discrimination. They're laying off old people and hiring young people.

      So in your world, you aren’t allowed to discriminate based on your net value produced for the company? You should go work for the government.

      Tell me, do you plan on staying young forever and no wlb?

      Not young now and have wlb, but it’s a choice and I understand the trade offs.

      If you dont believe you’re worth more, thats understandable but telling everyone to think they’re worth less than what they believe is plain ignorance.

      I’m not saying either, I’m saying that old people cost more for the value they produce, on average. Otherwise, they wouldn’t get laid off.

      Sure ~9k openings is the magic number.

    Oh, it must be Spring.

    Seriously, do some research. IBM has only one arrow in the quiver: Layoffs.

    We have to pay for redhat somehow. $100 says if/when that deal goes thru, you’ll see some major cuts for true “repositioning”.

    Wait till redhat goes thru. Then the axe will really swing.

    1.7 out of 300k is nothing. Happens all the time. Barely over only half of 1%.
