Keep The Faith

Monday, June 08, 2009

Almost two weeks ago our management team called an impromptu meeting at the end of our shift. As they moved us into the meeting they assured us that this is for the "Good of the Company". The important and informative meeting was to tell us that we are going to receive a 20% pay cut in two stages in the next 6 months. Don't get me wrong, I am still happy to have a job. The situation is that the management group is up for a raise. I don't understand how you can demote the workers and promote the boss.

Where is the common persons Robin Hood? It feels a little like Nottingham.

Then after being laid off for a week I go back to b told that after 11 years of service that I am going to "POSSIBLY" , maybe/maybe not be laid off permanently. The kicker is that Mary( my wife was laid off from a sister plant in Feb. two days after she got in 12 years.

I know that there is a path for everyone and with faith God Will get us through. The trial is how far is it to the bottom. I am ready to go up again.

"yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live."
1 Corinthians 8:6

    I'm so sorry to hear about this. It is terrible that they are willing to demote their workers to give the boss a raise. Michigan is a horrible lace for jobs right now and it is very sad. Take your frustrations to the gym and work it out! I just read an article that people who workout and take care of themselves get better jobs and raises. Use that encouragement to get through. Thinking of you and your family :)
