BNZ casualties on The Hill

From Mr Lynch:

"CB hears several staffers have been retrenched at Colenso BBDO, Auckland including american creative Travis Sorge who was hired from Saatchi LA less than a year ago. The retrenchments follow a pretty ordinary year for the agency on the business front. Sorge was hired after his Toyota 'Cliff' spot won best of show at the YoungGuns Awards two years back."

We say let's hope he stays in town. He's a very funny guy.

Does 'retrenched' mean fired? Or does it mean you do just more work but get paid less?

Meet him in pub, seams like a nice guy.... There is heaps of work around he will find plenty to keep him busy in NZ.

Retrenched does not mean fired. Fired means fired.
