    If you're in Kentucky, then there is no reason you're not working!

    I am having to solicit employees from outside the state and consider relocation allowances to get them here.

    Is this going to be the wave of the future?
    Everyone has a purpose in life..........even if it's to be a bad example.

    Seek first to understand, before seeking to be understood.

    I think part of the problem is the trade eats you up.

    I know many good to excellent techs that just want to "work to live, not live to work."

    Over 20 years experience here, most of it supermarkets and I'm worn down every week.

    60+ hour weeks, all nighters etc etc eventually wears you down.

    There aren't that many people entering the trade and a lot of us are looking to move in to something less brutal on the body and the family life.

    Can't get the lottery to cooperate and can't make enough flipping burgers! <<GRIN!!>>
