Working has been sucking ass as of late. Don't get me wrong. I love what I do tremendously! I work with CNG plasma and oxy cutting torches. But something at work doesn't seem right. In the month of August we lost a total of 22 employees. They either quit, or found a better job. Most of them welders(*top out pay after 5 years of welding is 14.85 hour), where as other companies start you at 17-18 bucks an hour. Now that welders are quitting. It has slowed my fabrication dept down to a creep. Would you really look forward to sweeping floors or re-arranging shelves for 8-10 hours a day? Because that's all there is to do! All overtime has been canceled permanently. And there's even talk of closing the factory for a month, to see if business picks up. I loathe management and the company for having suposable Christian values(*not that I follow their beliefs. Already put in for Halloween off...My New Year:P). Who honestly knows what the hell is going on. So I've taken it upon myself to update my resume, and seek employment somewhere where my talents can be used to their fullest. Of course I won't tell my current employer this. Due to the fact that they are like a severely jealous "ex". Once they know what you are doing, you'll get all sorts of crap on top of crap. And posting my intentions on myspace.com to let friends know what's up is the same result. Quite a few employees of mine are on that site, and have this habit of snitching to management about my personal goings ons! This is the safest place I could think of to let you guys know what part of the stress on this end is.Besides the obvious dealing with the IRS(aka Bloodsuckers).
Since dealing with my IRS plight...I have spoken to reps in Denver, Austin, Houston, Cincinatti, Sacramento, San Francisco, Minneapolis, And Buffalo. And of course, they all give me different answers. Gotta love Government agencies like luggage.....Not!!!!!
