    Don:
    thanks, I was looking for work when I went there & will be looking when I leave the next job... going thru a bunch seems many companies are quick to cut pay and benefits along with heads. Just got to go find an additional job. Sure makes it hard to build up any seniority that's for sure.

    They never let ANYONE know they were going to be cutting people only clue was the Rent-a-Cops showed up at 8am. I think they cut about 20% of Office & Engineering staff & far as I know left the shop/floor assembly/welders alone. Sales was slowing down and our New Development team got hit worse then my department did out of 15 or they let about 8 go...

    I may remember why I went to the other end of the shop, I'm just afraid once I get there I'll forget how to get back!

    Hate to hear that Mark. Best of luck in finding another job. There are many people looking for jobs but I do hear that good workers are hard to find so hopefully you can use that to your advantage!

    Thanks Guys: Just a coincidence I guess as President dissolved his JOBS counsel on the same day. so I guess maybe he saw all the tax money I been paying and couldn't afford them to NOT produce results anymore? hahaha

    I'm sure I can find SOMETHING around here "Welcome to wallymart get your made in china (R@p and get out." ahahah

    I found 3 or 4 local places looking for help now most all making a LOT less than I had been making after the time at the other place. I'm heading up to the Veterans affairs office to check and see what all they can offer as far as re-training or maybe I can get them to pony up to finish of my BA in Engineering. I sure could use a refresher in schooling and some Updates in Computer sciences and or maybe get some Mechanical programming/Software design training finish up working towards getting my Pro-Engineer software experience. I'm good on AutoCAD tho.

    anyhow just ggot a call woman blew brake line on car got to go get her...
