Circuit City Stores said Wednesday it plans to cut costs by laying off about 3,400 store workers and hiring lower-paid employees to replace them, and by trimming about 130 corporate jobs. Its shares rose 3 percent in morning trading. Circuit City, the nation's No. 2 consumer electronics retailer behind Best Buy, said the store workers being laid off were earning "well above the market-based salary range for their role." They will be replaced with employees who will be paid at the current market range, the company said in a news release.

My dear friends. It''s not Circuit City''s fault for their actions. It''s hard to be responsible for actions if you haven''t got a backbone. For the last 6-7 years the brain trust at that company refuses to step up to the plate with their own ideas. All that money they pay procurement, marketing, and advertising is a waste if all they''re going to do is copy Best Buy. I''m surprised they haven't ordered the blue shirts yet.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
