Exactly. Firing him was probably just a prelude to some kind of government-backed plan that will tear up the union contracts because it's an emergency. They had to can the CEO to make the point that things are really that dire.
This might not have been Wagoner's fault personally, but I really don't think his firing was the usual kind where you just assign blame without actually solving the problem. It was more like a tool to make something happen that we haven't seen yet.
