Anybody who thinks this line of reasoning makes sense has a promising future in upper management.

Else, how can you justify the larger outlay for the new body?

If a few days of training and ramp-up with a tool are too
costly in lost productivity, what are the chances that the
company thinks they can still afford to keep those drones around?

Those drones have been there a year and have the only
TW and user knowledge-base (as opposed to developer/SME
knowledge base which is different). If they aren't
immediately let go, they can see which way the wind
blows. Just when they thought their year of product
relevant experience and increasing productivity was
going to pay off in a raise, they get either the
boot or the dunce corner.
