verb : (to)
to lay off your workers, for no specific reason other than the fact that you decide to move your company overseas.
N.B: not to be confused with either the crucifixion, a method of capital punishment in the Roman Empire, or The Crucifixion -of Jesus-but this is just as painful in the modern capitalist world.
Emily (adressing her boyfriend): Carl, remember I told you my boss was thinking about firing me? Well now he finally succeeded. I finally learned the reason; it's not just me he is firing, it's everyone. He's going to crucify the entire staff.
Carl: Oh, the bastard. If he is going to crucify all his staff like that, and other companies follow suit, guess what?, the laid off workers around The United States might start an American Communist Revolution.
