Alternate terminology for buying and selling grandmas

I personally prefer "hire" and "fire" because its something you can actually do to people working for you.

    Apart from "buying" and "selling" maintaining consistency with other buildings, they express better what happens. Buying implies paying a set amount for an asset, after which you have the asset as long as you wish without paying any more. Selling implies receiving cash (or cookies) back on disposing of said asset. "Hiring and firing" implies some ongoing expense while you have the worker. That's not the case in this game.

    Exactly, Bob. Besides that, this guy is completely missing the point. (dark joke ahead)

    You're actually literally buying and selling these Grandmas in a black market slave trade.

    To quote the grandmas themselves, as seen in the news ticker, "Indentured servitude."

    Really, everything should be a continuous drain on monetary resources.
