Everyone is so Geriatric now with so many laid off. The only thing I can think of to motivate the troops would be a set of those electric paddles like the paramedics use. Maybe some bengay too?

Why not put Hoffa on the board. He's a turnaround (and bend over) expert.
[/quote]

Ya, He's already destroyed the Teamsters and the NMFA. Why not let him finish off YRC??

Why you damn whippersnapper you !
 
the desription of the one woman says she is experienced working with debt-laden companies. notice it doesn't say she SAVED debt-laden companies, only says she is used to working with them. so am i- does that make Either of us qualified?
 
("• Marnie Gordon, a director at investment adviser Angelo, Gordon & Co. She has experience with financially challenged companies.")

Not mentioned with her history in the posted article is her last and most recent executive position. Vice president of investment with Goldman & Sachs!!!!!
Just what kind of turn-around or re-structuring are they looking for here.
Sound like very questionable connections to me.

They've been so engulfed in playing the "shell game" with the money, that they lost focus on what helps a company grow and prosper. It's pretty simple.......keep your employees happy and your customers happy and you will succeed. They've done neither!
