Trent got home (after working 13 hours) and had bad news. Work is going back to 3 shifts. This means he will be going back to 2nds. I just DONT understand how this huge company can get by with this...well I do...no union! That would change alot. The big-wigs called yesterday and told them they were being outdone on making feed by up north. So what?? Big deal!! That they better step it up or they wouldnt get world class!!! Who cares!!! They just hired three new guys so of course production will be down with training. They just think (and do) they can change it on a daily basis. They change the hours weekly and sometimes on a daily basis on when they all should work. The boss said he knows this will be hard on families and the change is not good. Does it affect 1 shift workers?????????????????? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! It's not changing his life and family. It's just a chosen few. THe few that stay and put up with it because they have to have insurance for their daughter (ours) who takes medication three times a day and will have to have surgery next year. He stays because of her and us. And he loves the job. It is farming related--BUT HATES all the bazooo that comes along with it.
They say this is only gonna be for a week and then they will see if production is up or if they have to keep the 3 shifts. Trent says once the new guy finishes training that he may get to go back to first. Who wants to work with those creeps????
