  1. They didn't die. This kind of phrasing is usually used for people dying in a tragic event, not the results of an economic downturn leading to cutting staff.
  2. They weren't "lost". They were fired. It sounds like it was necessary, but clothing it in passive verbiage doesn't help.
  3. I don't love it when companies call employees family (unless there were actual related people on the staff, which might be the case). Relations might be friendly, but employment is a business transaction first and foremost.

at the end the best stay. Makes all better. Like the same happens in tech the last months too.

This is kind of a shitty attitude towards people who just got fired. In listening to the town hall, it was more around who was bringing in dollars to the company. E.g. support largely were so good at their job they cleared all the queue and so weren't needed anymore. They were some of the best, but they no longer made financial sense to keep on the payroll. Doesn't mean they weren't the best at what they did.

Sounds shitty, because it's a shitty topic.

At the end all companies in tech fire people. So workforce becomes cheaper = good for the business.

Sure it sounds like an asshole attitude, but it is the truth and got for asset holders.

I understand the need to fire people in tough times, but saying it's because they weren't the best is what I'm taking umbrage with. They were very good at those jobs. It was just decided those jobs weren't worth the cost to the company at this time. But saying it's because they weren't the best is a bit of a slap in the face to all the great work they put in, even if it was for the best from the company's perspective.

It's not a moral point. The logic is, you don't fire the people you really need. That's it.

Maybe splinterlands fire random people. But normally you fire the people that are not the best.
