I don't even know what to say. I've been with the company 5yrs and had 10 days off total. I've worked six days a week 90hr a week minimum since the first day I started. I was told I was let go due to economics, and the job was given to one of my guys because he makes 3 dollars an hr less. So much for Employer loyalty.

dang that is just wrong, prayers for something better in the future :thumbsup:
It's hard to find work in my area, so the family is already prepared for a move. It does suck to go home and tell six kids it'll be ok when I have no idea. Thankfully I always keep about 6 mo. worth of a nest egg, but damn it still sucks.

These are difficult times for many of us, sales are so far down with my business that I've had to take on a part time management position just to make ends meet. Sometimes you just gotta do whatever is necessary to get by. :confused2:

Keep your chin up friend. Things will turn around. Hopefully you'll land and upgrade.

I live by a bit of wisdom my mother passed down to me "Things happen for a reason". I think there may be something better down the road for you so good luck!

I'm with you. Just say, "Unemployment" and get your maximum weekly. Due to your job history, and weekly load you'll get quite a sum.

I'm in a similar situation with Local 165 here in Vegas. Not getting the maximum on weeks we have no banquet work, but I'm making a little on the side doing mechanical work on friend's cages and scooters. I don't like having to turn wrenches when I do a lot of charity work in that area anyway, but it helps making ends meet. It's also paying for these necessities like tires, and chains, and clutches. :super: My only vacation-type trip this year will be the Stampede at the end of July.......:whistle:

Maybe 2010 will be better.........???

That sucks bro. That area of PA is really hurting. Moving aint such a bad thing, just hang in there. It will get better.

Sorry to hear, Bro. I think everyone is having it rough. We had to take a $500.00 a week cut here, just to keep our jobs. It's better than unemployment though. Hang in there, an just one day at a time. :thumbsup:
