Yahoo! News – Sun weans workers from healthy perk

Now that Sun has had a long, $2B drink at Microsoft’s teat, the workers down in the Valley are the ones who suffer.

It is not so much that Sun shoots itself in the foot with a decision like this (will they really be net positive after all the negative press and bad feelings?), but that they can’t even come up with a good explanation for why it makes sense. Happy employees are productive employees, and when you are a company just one more workstation away from complete irrelevance, you need all the help you can get.
