Ah, the pain of separation

Bothered by snooty Circuit City employees who were lording it over you because of their exorbitant salaries? Worry no more, Circuit City is taking care of the problem:
The company has completed a wage management initiative that will result in the separation of approximately 3,400 store Associates. The separations, which are occurring today, focused on Associates who were paid well above the market-based salary range for their role. New Associates will be hired for these positions and compensated at the current market range for the job.
"Separations." "Associates." "Fired wage-slaves" are the words they were looking for. These people are no more "associated" with the management of Circuit City than I am.

And don't you love that phrase "wage management initiative"? Yes, they said to each other, let's do a better job of "managing" the wages of our wage-slaves. "Wage lowering initiative" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
