The term used by management to describe their decision to take away pay, benefits, or a job from an employee.

A decision based entirely on upper management being able to skim a couple more dollars of profit off from the company without a care or concern to employee safety, long term company effect, equipment reliability, or any other thing than pocketing the bossman a couple more dollars.
Manager: Well we have decided that you will no longer be able to take off holidays.
Employee: Why? I enjoy seeing my family. Why can't I have something that the federal government gives everyone else?
Manager: After some research the company has found that taking away your time and happiness is a good business decision.
