Sharp Overwhelmed By Volunteers For Early Retirement 103

jfruh writes "Sharp, the Japanese LCD supplier in dire financial straits, is trying to cut staffing by offering an early retirement package. Unfortunately, it seems Sharp employees are eager to abandon a sinking ship. The company was planning on cutting its headcount by about 2,000 employees with the move; instead, it had to cut short the program after getting nearly 3,000 applicants."

    (*) Actual socialism, of course, is worker control of the means of production, and has nothing to do with what Americans call "socialism" at all.

    Actual socialism is workers having the illusion of having control of the means of production with the state having the actual control and screwing the workers whenever possible.

    Actual capitalism is workers having the illusion of choice and freedom with the owners having the actual control and screwing the workers whenever possible.
