Hi, the author here is trying to make the case that acme has chances to advance for unskilled workers, which is evidenced by the fact that the current president once started on the assembly line, a presumably unskilled position. Ignoring the questionable categorization of skilled or unskilled labor, B completely destroys the assumption that the president was ever unskilled. Rather, the company briefly places some skilled workers into positions typically filled by unskilled laborers. So, the president was never an unskilled laborer, severing the connection between the premise and the conclusion.
