No. of Recommendations: 2
I rarely put much stock (no pun intended) into "Money Magazine", but a gift subscription arrives monthly so I occasionally peruse it. Imagine my chuckle at the following, noted in the February, 2009 issue:

In the article entitled "Fireproof Your Job", on page 82, under "Be A Money-Maker", the first paragraph of that subsection of the article states "The easiest jobs to cut in a downsizing are usually the ones that cost the company money rather than make it money. If your job is in the second group, start acting like you're in the first."

If people do as recommended, they will most certainly be shooting themselves in the foot!

I wrote them and suggested that they direct their editors to read copy a bit more carefully in the future.
