Stepping out of the grey mists
« on: January 23, 2012, 11:27:31 pm »
I've been away for a while but some of the old timers (especially the science geeks) might remember me as the cantanquerous old timer from Iowa
In the past three years, I've lost my job of 22 years, moved to Arkansas, and started a new life

Sorry about the Job

Long story short, once the 1600 or so people they had laid off (some with most of 20 years in) were gone for six months, they were considered terminated, and could be re-hired at $8/hr.
It wasn't long after that six months was up that they started finding excuses to get rid of the old timers

They tend to do that, that happened to my father and my uncle.
