Or is this another attempt to reintroduce serfdom? Or is it this an example of firing someone a couple years before retirement to avoid pensions, or firing someone before the end of the pregnancy in order to avoid paying the medical bills. I know Americans don't take the vacations days they are qualified for because they fear being fired.
Is there a new serfdom coming? Tug our forelock and say "right cher are" to the foremen?
