Everybody likes saving where there is a redundancy, unless of course your job is the one redundant.
Its funny how most of the companies around here want to slim down by getting rid of redundant workers. They try to make short term profits by reducing staff and making them work harder. The problem with this is that the more people that make a decent income, the more money they have to buy products they produce. Henry Ford I was smart enough to overpay his workers so they would have money to buy his cars making him more money.
So jobs are cut, people dont have money to buy expensive goods, sales go down, people are cut... and the cycle continues.
I think that is one reason the governments are so inneficient.. all the extra spending supports the economy and keeps people working and buying and most importantly paying taxes.
