    I am required to be on call Mon - sun and a phone call away with no "spiffs" (like the OT post) and if I dont get called out I dont get nuthin! I worked 23 last week and if I am lucky will break 20 this week. I start on call Mon and 2 of our techs are out on vacation. Maybe just maybe I will get 40 in!
    And as far as laid off.... our installers are getting unemployment while they are laid off. A week of unemployment beats no work! They have 4 office weenies working their 40/week though. You know they arent bringing in money!!!
