why hire, increase hours requirements, only to let people go? There's such a learning curve involved to get good results from people - it seems like a really bad model for them, aside from the fact that it's an awful way to treat people. Too, this is a different way to go about it than what I've seen in the past with the loss of drop downs (not that it means anything, just a note to self, I suppose). I feel for everyone who's caught up in this, seems like there's even a veteran. Could be me next.
