Economic Restructuring at Slackers Inc

In these hard economic times getting value from employees is critical.

A company needed a shakeup as the economic crisis kicked in. They had just hired a new CEO for restructuring who was determined as a first step to rid the company of all the slackers.

On a tour of the facilities, he saw a guy leaning on a wall and wanted to let the workshop full of workers know that he meant business.

'How much money do you make a week?' he said as he walked up to the. Surprised, the young you replied, 'I make $400 a week. Why?' The CEO ignoring his question, pulled $1,600 from his pocket and loudly so everyone could hear said, 'Here's four weeks' pay. Now GET OUT and don't come back!'

Feeling good about himself the CEO looked around the room and asked, 'Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did around here?'

A lone voice from the back of the workshop responded, 'He's the Pizza delivery boy from Domino's.'
