They are laying off everyone who they determine is making more than minimum market wage. Nice.

Circuit City isn't in business to provide people jobs, or a certain income. They`re in business to make money. If they don`t make money then they go out of business and every employee of the company is out of work. If you don`t like how you`re treated or compensated where you work leave. Most American employees have no loyalty to their employer, so why should a company have to pay its employees more than the market demands? If you can get a higher paying job at a different company, go...and don`t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

It's a little more than creepy that some of you are attacking the "little people", you know the one`s that actually need those few dollars increase to survive inflation in our capitalistic society. Everyone knocks communism, and rightfully so, but capitalism is not a dream, it`s the extreme opposite to communism. We have never successfully reached a middle(socialism) because of the greedy corporate bastards who refuse to live with a little less.
FYI, Circut city, best buy, walmart any big box superstore who can afford to sell their products so cheap because they buy materials from sweat shop owners- are all the same. Different name but the same. I witnessed a 61 year old 23 year employee fired because she had cancer, even though she was still coming to work everyday. And that is glorious, wonderful capatalism. How is this the best way again?

I can't honestly believe that this handful of people making a bit more than the average could be that detrimental to the company unless they are really hurting in which case the layoffs aren`t going to help much. This is just money grubbing and/or someone flexing their corporate equivalent to an e-peen.

Oh, as for the increase in minimum wage, y`all seem to have the causality mixed up a tad. The reason they need more money is because things are more expensive and they kinda, sorta enjoy being alive.

I can't believe how he blandishes his mother.
I bet not even half of it is true.

Pure exploitation of the workers. Remember if you oppose their movements you're a communist!
