    We're Getting Laid Off

    They told us two weeks ago lay offs were coming, since they provide a lot of services to the county, we would follow what the county was doing. It's supposed to be across the board, but I doubt that, as the boss was hopping mad two weeks ago. now he seems happy about it. He gets bonuses on how cheap the department runs. Unlike the county we have to come in all five days, the new schedule the boss made has us working more than 40, not the 36 hours

    That's the nature of the beast we all have to deal with. Keep in mind that it's not your bosses job to look out for your best interest that's your job.

    Sorry to hear about the work situation, sounds chaotic .
    Too bad they reward the mgr based on being cheap rather than other more rewarding(and profitable for the company) benchmarks,almost always causes needless trouble for most everyone.


    Hope it works out.

    sounds like it has more to do with the previous 8 years than the last 4 months

    I don't understand what you're saying. You said "we're getting laid off" then you say you're working 40 hours not "the 36".

    What does that MEAN?

    ...cause I'm laid off and I work zero hours.

    No mystery at all, boss is doing his own form of math which equals working off the clock. Samething happens when I take off for a Drs appointment, way he figures it I'm off one more hour than I was actually off, same with late arrival on bad weather days.
