Less money going to employees = more money for the share holders n bigger bonuses for mgt.
This too shall pass. Take a look at a little company called Opko Health (OPK) Their Opko Diagnostics business will make DGX obsolete in the future. Its happening as we write!!
OPK 1 years performance is dismal.
And their market cap is 1.5 bil. at $4 a share? wow.
