In the wake of last weeks layoffs (which I survived thank you all) I have an observation about the corporate mindset right now.

From upper management comes an edict:

You have goal X to meet with Y number of employees! If you do not meet the goal, you will be replaced with someone who can meet that goal.

In Reality!

If you do meet the goal you will become part of a reduction in force because you obviously have too many resources.

Is this irony? I know it's not a spoon when all I need is a knife, but I am not sure what to call it other than insane.

Yes, but could they meet that goal with robots?
