Alice's demand for 20% is a test of the first use of this "negotiating tool." When that is successful, and it is indicated by the Elbonian's response that it is, I'm sure Alice will up the ante.

Ok the cultural sensitivity guy did a bad job and now it can never be undone. The Elbonians should invite him to Elbonia and prevent the problum from repeating.

You are absolutely correct. I was Asok for a time and I survived the first round of layoffs in the company for that very reason...
Sadly, they were forced into a second round ... :-(
Oh well, at least I got to spend the summer studying for the FE exam (no work to do) and got paid for it.

I can't believe Elbonian souls are just worth 20% of the price. Some of the retailers just give 20% for a weekend sale. If you ask me, I would say Elbonians are getting a good deal here..

Faizal, I would think that Asok will do anything to keep Alice from puching a hole in his skull. But really, Asok is the poor short-timer who is paranoid about losing his job at every turn and shakes with every assignment. Little does he know that in this day and age he is more likely to survive a round of layoffs due to his low salary and band, it is the supposedly 'tenured' employees that will be shown teh door.
