You're not being canned because you're doing a lousy job. You're doing a great job. You're being canned because management is doing a lousy job.

Quote:
Rupert Murdoch's troubled Australian publishing division, News Limited, has announced a new round of redundancies after deciding to outsource subbing work.

In a far-reaching restructuring of the business, it is expected that 65 jobs will go by the end of October once Pagemasters assumes production responsibilities and other newsroom changes are implemented.

Editorial director Campbell Reid told staff: "We will seek to achieve this reduction through a combination of attrition, redeployment and redundancy...

"I want to emphasise that the reduction of roles within our business is not a reflection on the dedication or quality of our teams. Rather, it reflects an opportunity to improve our company's operating efficiency."
[Guardian]
