maybe I don’t know what I am talking about

Or maybe I am just paying too much attention to media crap. But I might strike too if I was told that my company wanted me to take a paycut (this after they stopped paying into the employees pension); but the CEO was getting a 300% increase in his salary and 9 other company executives were getting a 60 – 100% salary increase.

I know it’s stupid to leave a job but if this is true it would be very hard for me to stay there, you know?
Just my thoughts.

I think some of you will remember that a few years back

the trucking company I work for was facing a 10% pay cut. We’re a union carrier. It wasn’t long after that we gave 5% more. The union never struck. Non-union office personnel took the pay cuts as well and also had to drop to 35 hours a week for a few months.

2 years later we’re in business and making a great recovery. Many of these guys have no experience other than their truck driving skills. Quite a few carriers over the years have already gone out of business. There’s not a lot of places for these guys to go. Thanks to a clear head and every one giving a little we’ve bounced back and all still have our jobs.
