Today, Market Watch (Tim Rostan, https://on.mktw.net/2JmZzLH <https://on.mktw.net/2JmZzLH>) cited Chris Kempczinski as using the expression “exit our system” to mean “be fired."

“I recognize that change is difficult,” the company’s U.S. president, Chris Kempczinski, wrote in a memo reviewed by the Journal, “and that eliminating layers within our organization means some employees will ultimately exit our system.”
