No, I didn't miss that.

I was just pointing out that it is a two-way street.  They want to treat
the situation as if they are giving and giving, and we just benefit.

Sorry, but that's not true.  Going to work for a corporation, especially
these days, is making a huge commitment of your life.

At least a few locally though, have cast off some deadweight, which
opened up positions for some good people.  Not enough, but little
victories are good.
