    My job is a love/hate thing. If my boss hovers over me, I hate it. When I can work in peace, then I'm cool.

    everything was good and then out of the blue on a tuesday just before lunch they let go 25 of us, about 15% of the workforce. no indication that anything in regards to a lay-off was even on the horizon. nothing, just a we're letting you and 24 others go. here are checks for PTO and a 2wks severence pay. had to leave the building effective immediately packing up my stuff. a real slap in the face for being there for over 3.5 yrs...not gonna lie, it stings how they went about it...

    no pricipals or associates were let go. those who stayed took a 5% cut in pay. hell, i would have take a 20% cut in pay, cause that would have put me at the pay level i was when they hired me...

    no one knows how they came to choose the employees that they did. most that were let go were there for 5 yrs or less. however, there were a few people that started there about a year or so ago and are still employed. i guess they figure those with 5-6 yrs professional experience like me will find a job easier than someone 2 yrs or less out of school. one girl who was let go started in july. not even there for 7-8 months. she got screwed the worse out of everyone in regards to unemployment benefits...

    I got layed off AGAIN today starting Monday. 2 weeks. I told them I will be gone for 4 weeks. Im gonna do my best to get a job with Siemons Power. I 100% hate my job, and shook my boss's handed again today when he layed me off. I dont give two shits, Half the people at my work know I probably wont be back to work at Cat. I have been there over 3.5 years. Im sick off all the Union BS. I finally told a few other mechanics today that I dont give a shit about thier BS, I am not filing grievances against the company and to stop all Union talk with me.


    Im off to bigger and betetr things hopefully. My Brother brought home, (after taxes) ....


    1700 bucks last week. Thats one week. Sign me up brotha. Ill leave my job tomorrow.

    Yes, 1700. One week. 10-12 hours a day obviously. Every Saturday obviously. Sometimes halfday Sunday. Low 20's/hour start out pay.

    90 bucks per day in Perdeium(sp) (living money). That money is UN TAXABLE. Not taxed. Add in 4 hours over time per day. 10 hour on saturday.

    Didnt say you wont be working your ass off and long hours. But for damn near 2000 bucks a week. Shit, if you can stand the work.... fucking awesome.




    Wind tower Tech.

    Wind mills.

    Power Generation.

    300 ft wind towers. Big motherfuckers. Cant get your panties in a wad from a little bit of distance between you and the ground.

    Granted, he doesnt always bring home 1700 a week, he worked his ass off that week, but he makes great fucking money every week. Over a grand. You want overtime? Have all you want. He went to school for this stuff. He says he can fill out a referral form for me. With my 3.5 years of Caterpillar Heavy Equipment work. 2 years of BS Trade schooling... they would hire me. Basically you need... Electrical training documents.... Hydraulic training documented, amoung some other things. All of which I have x 2. Cat has sent me to probably over 100 hours of thier traing plus my schooling and work experience.

    I really hope I get the job.

    Only thing is, you DO NOT pick where you work in the USA. They ship you where ever they need you for the first 6 months. Period. I have no problem with that. I will pack me and my girlfriend up and move within a week.
