  • Summer thoughts…

    A lot has been on my mind lately, and with certain things that have gone on I need to vent… While good things have happened in the past couple months that have kept me really busy, (bought a house, getting married in a couple weeks, etc.) Some bad things have come my way, and even if it doesn’t affect me personally, it affects the people I work with that I view as friends. I know with the economic situation, even government is having to cut back, and who I work for is no exception. I just don’t like the fact that they don’t feel like our positions are important enough to warrant going into reserve funds to keep us around. What is worse is they talk about how it was hard to lose 8 positions in the central office, but they saved everyone elses job. No where do they mention cutting 14 of us. No where do they have heavy hearts, no where do they have any remorse. One board member actually alluded to the fact they they don’t need us. If they want to go back to paper and pencil, feel free to get rid of more of us. When your computer doesn’t work and no one is there to fix it, maybe then you will realise what you have done. Last year these techs were hired because the board was not satisfied with the level of support, and now you are going to cut them this year. That is just a slap to the face if I ever saw one. Some people just don’t get it until it is too late. But the board isn’t the only one to blame… management definately had a role in not sticking up for us. Our CTO should have put the fear of God into that board saying we can’t afford to cut technicians. With all the technology being added this coming year, we need all the support we can get, but no, he just kept talking about unrelated projector bulbs… sigh…

    It is just sad to see 14 people be let go because of the stupidity of people in charge that have no clue what technology is about….
