Reality show lets workers at struggling companies decide who to fire
Soon, a new reality show will allow workers to choose which of their co-workers should be fired, giving workers of the world a chance to be the boss.
The show from the Dutch-based creator of the hit TV series "Big Brother" will allow staff at companies struggling in the global recession to choose which colleague should be fired or get a salary cut based on information about pay and past performance, according to a Reuters story.
Each episode of "Someone's Gotta Go" will also ask workers at struggling businesses to choose who should get a raise.
"It will be an interesting experiment to reverse the power roles," said a spokesman for Endemol, the production company from Amsterdam.
The format has been sold to Fox Television in the United States. Why is that not surprising?
