It's called "efficiency," my friend.
And "Fast Eddie" Burkhardt is renowned the world over for the efficiency two-step he brings to the railroads that he and his hedge fund backers have "restructured" over the years.

Step two; grind down the wages of those who remain.
After all, every dollar out of a worker's pay packet is another dollar for the dividend pool.
