this isn’t how you make layoff decisions

This is dumb on so many levels that I don’t even know where to begin:

Newspaper tells two employees to decide between themselves which one will be laid off

Oh fine, I’ll begin here:  You don’t make layoff decisions arbitrarily — you make them based on actual business factors, looking at performance, what the company will need going forward, tenure if all else is equal, etc. This is a total abdication of management responsibility.

Plus, there’s the little matter of it being grossly cruel.
