The Hale Burton Oil Pipeline Construction Corporation has had a bad quarter. Rather than lay off workers to cut costs, however, it will simply defer salaries for 30 days and hold them in a mutual fund to pick up interest to cover expenses.
By doing this the company and its employees will avoid the negative consequences often associated with earning shortfalls.
Which of the following, if true, is the best criticism of the corporation,Aos plan?
We have to look for an answer that shows that: despite the plan, employees will experience "negative consequences".
A. Employees will not be able to control which mutual funds the salaries will be diverted into.
This doesn't mean any "negative consequences".
B. The corporation cannot save money by cutting staff because it is already understaffed.
Again, no "negative consequences" can be deducted from this.
C. Some employees will need to borrow money to hold them over until the 30 days are up and they will consequently have 30 days of interest on these loans.Correct
. 30 days of interests are a bad consequence for the employees.
D. Some employees will not be affected by the rollover because they have savings.
No "negative consequences" here.
E. The corporation's budget was cut by 15% last year.
This is a fact that doesn't affect the conclusion.
It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge that begins with experience.
