    The employee and employer in the equation are like comparing the commitment of the chicken and the pig in bacon and eggs guys.....
    The chicken is interested......the pig is committed. Get it?
    Owners lose their houses, vehicles, and nearly all their possessions when their companies/contracts/etc go for a $hit. We raid bank accounts and RRSP funds at high tax costs etc to 'make payroll' and keep on our feet.

    As I said before for any of you that judge the owners to be f***ing jerks and cheap SOBs......go start your own company and RUN it for a minimum of 5 years and then come tell me how the other side of the fence grass is.

    TB.....your boss trumps you.....

    'Morning Bret and everyone. Yikes, Art, that's a nasty one. I hope things pick up for you guys. Bret, you gotta try to be a bit more careful for now. There will be time for running around again.

    A truck with worn brakes is one thing.

    How about:

    you do a bunch of work for a major bookstore chain and they go out of business (seven of those stores in my territory alone)

    you do a bunch of work for a teen clothing outlet chain and they declare bankruptcy (maybe 12 stores in my area)

    You do a MAJOR u.s. chain of hair salons, and the service broker loses the contract due to mismanagement (30 stores in my area)

    the same service broker loses THE office copy chain in the world (another 12 stores in my area)


    ...and then you company has to lay off two men, which is 33% of the techs.

    That's what my week was like, and one of them was a close friend and good helper.

    Now, we have to figure out how to fill in those blanks, or next time, I'm one of the guys turning in his truck.

    That's my ante. Who can raise me?
    Wow that stinks so is it you and the owner left?

    do you guys have any contract left?
    If you help others then you are a Success

    There are three guys beside the boss in our northern area of the state.

    I'm the only guy left in the Philly area.

    We have some work, but there is no comparison to 16 months ago.
