Parable of the Pink Slip

To what shall I compare this generation?

It is like a company whose executives held an emergency meeting to address their business' financial losses. They never, for a moment, considered reducing their own large salaries, or reducing the number of executive positions. Instead, they searched through the payroll to find the five highest-paid employees, and fired them forthwith.

Of course, those five employees also happened to be the five top salesmen. The reason for their large paychecks was the commission on the sales they closed, which together brought in 50% of the company's income.

What will be the result of the executives' decision? Will not the company's investors treat those executives as they deserve? Let him hear who has ears.
