when times got bad at my union shop we would split time one guy works for a week then takes a week off .at least this way everyone got some money and benifits.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Hard Times

Hi all , sorry to hear of your problems . All I hear from the gov. is they want you to spend spend spend go into the banks for money . I believe that what got us in this spot the gov. had the bank loan money to people who could not pay it back, so we all have to pay it ( only working tax paying working people ) O well lets not go there .

Yep.. We are still doing the 1 week off a month deal.. Prob for the rest of the year.. Our contract expired last Saturday so hopefully they will have that worked out before we go back to work this Sunday.. No massive concessions is what Im pulling for..

On a better note the stock market has pulled up the past couple of weeks.. Now if we could only get Washington to quit spending our money before we even send it to them we may start to climb out of this junk in a couple decades..

We went down to 50% production of sulfuric acid. We are now running 85% which is pretty good. Acid use is a good indicator of how hard the gas refineries are running. 401-K is turning up so thats a good thing.

I really hate to hear about this stuff happening to people. And its extremely frustrating to see so many people really high up actually making things worse to drum up support for their agenda. Depressing.

the Army will take whoevers willing. Youre over 18 and under 40 we'll take ya. Job security right there. Although I doubt that the defense budget is safe for very much longer. Its already taken one hit, im sure there are many to come.

And BTW to any and all who are interested, if it really gets bad up there. There is daily talk in the news locally that our job market is very strong in Texas, especially in the San Antonio metro area. We're actually still growing. Check it out. Texas is riding out the reccession alot better than the rest of the country. There are no closed shops so union membership isnt required plus very few TX based banks took part in the sub prime market and even fewer took bailout money so there is actually credit too.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
-John Stewart Mill
