fastcompany:

Should BlackBerry Fire Alicia Keys?

This article is really worth reading and thinking about. My conclusion is that if you’re on a company’s payroll, you really shouldn’t be any more immune to layoffs than anyone else. Honestly, and this opinion comes especially from the fact that no one will disclose what she is actually doing, if it’s a matter of one high-paid celebrity endorser, versus a handful or more of code jockeys in the cubes…I mean I don’t have all the information to make the decision, but my laypersons opinion is that it seems pretty obvious which is a better idea for a number of reasons.
