I tell ya I just can't win for trying!!!!!
 
I got a whopping 3% raise two weeks ago.  Last week while I was on vacation SB&D had an unannounced lay-off and one of my friends unjustly got the axe.  Then management issued an edict that they had decided to close the CDIY complex the week of thanksgiving and the week of Christmas.  Everyone at CDIY (Construction & Do it Yourself Div ie Dewalt Industrila Power tools) would have to take a total of 6 furlow days without pay or burn their VAcation time.  I was also told that the pending promotions had been frozen.....Whoopie, there goes my salary adjustment!!!
 
So, lets do some math.....
 
3% raise issued in August instead of January.... effective raise for 2011 = 1%
6 furlow days out of 260 workdays = 2.31% pay reduction for the year. 
1% raise - 2.31% reduction = 1.31% loss of pay for 2011 and little hope of my promised promotion.
Inflation is in the doule digit this year and we're losing pay....go figure.
 
Remember, the Stanley management cut our pay 5% in 2008 during the B&D merger while at the same time giving themselves 200+% raises justified by the B&D profit numbers.  Since the merger SB&D has been hired several Directors and VPs, all with 6 figure salaries, stock options and perks...
 
Can anyone tell me what a "VP of Complexity Management" is?!?!?  (The latest Hire).
Not hiring one VP with 6 digit salary, stock options and perks would easily saved at least 10 of the people laid-off last week.
 
Inflation is in double digits this year so I'm wondering what kind of raise those thieves are going to give themselves this year while hamstringing the worker bees!
 
Hey Beltfed!!!  How hard is it to make my AR-15 full auto?!?!?!  I'm seriously thinking of going on a vertical hog hunt!!!!  Cencored
 
And Yes Earl...my Funk has returned, already, in spades!!!!! Soap Box

Bud, i'm sorry to hear they're screwing you over like that. I'm sort of with G on this one, you may just have to seek employment elsewhere (much easier said than done i know). I don't want to see those pricks get the best of you.

Hey Bud, just a thought, leak this chit to the local paper send them an anonomous letter or something.  If they get the public after them maybe the workers will see a change.

You know, i was a bit skeptical about PA's antler restriction program put in place a handful of years ago but it's starting to really pay off. You're seeing fewer buck, but many more that make it 2 and 3 years and sport some very nice antlers. Couple that in with more people (like my dad) putting out food plots and it's paying off.
 
We've already got 2 nice 8 points roaming around on the trail cams. I'm sure there are a couple of others that haven't popped up yet.

1)  My resume is a brightly shining turd baking unnoticed in the sun....
 
2)  Several local paper articles have had seemingly little impact.  (management is now in MASS.
 
3)  Just about every technician here and over half teh Electrical Engineers are currently job shopping.  For techs there is very little that doesn't require Security Clearance and working for the Feds.  If you don't have an active Clearance it takes months to get one.
 
4)  SB&D management is already under at least 3 different lawsuits for undermining and destabilizing the companies stability,  Giving themsleves huge unprecidented raises while docking the pay of the rest of the corporation, all while net profits were down 34% from previous years.

I've held a Secret level Clearance before.
It's a matter of going thru the process again and that has gotten much more involved then it used to be since to creation of Homeland Security!!!! 
 
The other issue is the increased commute distance.  I'm already traveling 38 miles each way.  It would increase to over 50 miles easily! Whacko

I had to go through secret and top secret clearances in the Air Force for my job and the first part took about a month IIRC, and it was the TSC one that took a bit longer. I was in training anyway so it wasn't a big deal, but yeah they're not quick that's for sure.
 
How far of drive is it in to Bmore/DC?
