Bid away


Senior Member
I've come across another phrase that I don't understand.
What does bid away mean?

"Immobile resources cannot be bid away readily from their employer".

Thank you

    It means that someone else who wants to use that resource can't "outbid" the owner of the resources, can't pay more than the current user/employer because it's not practical to move that resource somewhere else (or that it can't be done readily, at any event).
