    When management won't listen you can either suck it up and try to make the most of it, or quit and find another job. Those are your options in this country. Many non-union folks are currently exercising the latter option. So, unions are rightfully exercising their option to strike at a time when supply chains are already squeezed globally. The ball is in management's court.
    Yep, and good for them on it. I hope they extract a sh-tload from John Deere. Fuck the fat cats.

      • Was terminated from working with autistic kids today. 2 hours later, I get a call saying I'll be working in a neuro rehabilitation home for those with severe brain and nervous system injuries.

        • I don't mind driving for Door Dash and Uber Eats.

          However, I've been getting these orders for $2.50 with no tip that make me giggle before declining.

          • New job, while not fantastic, is good. At least my coworkers are people closer to my age, everyone is affirming, and the residents I care for are delightful, like honorary grandparents.

            But they are short staffed and to get people to cover at other locations, they offer things like gift cards.

            • The number floating around is that 25% of our software team (>300 people) has resigned in the last 8 weeks. Disaster is in 3…2….1….

              Not clear if it’s mandate related or just part of the great resignation in general. Programmers do tend to be a fiercely independent/libertarian lot.
              If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                  Yes, they're all "independent" thinkers in exactly the same way.

                  • My second shift lead last night: "I don't know why they hired you." Then proceeded to flaunt her 25 years experience and how she trained her kids in direct care.

                    I had started this job to gain experience and make some money. Now I have a new reason: spite. ****ing her off with my presence alone.

                          The date that this thread no longer applies.

                            developers are highly transient even in normal times. Most of the "Great Resignation" is just people moving jobs, since most things were static for 2020 and half of 2021.

                              Like, okay, here's a bunch of what amounts to deferred comp that varies with the firm's stock performance. You'll get to keep it, IF you slog it out for another 5 years, and don't expect to cash it in until you leave or retire because you are required to maintain stock holdings equivalent to at least 50% (or more in some instances) of your base salary. Meanwhile your best subordinates will continue to leave each year to live the startup dream, or even just move to smaller firms with less middle management that are paying better base salaries.

                                Oh puh-leaze. Like direct care at an AFC home is some sort of highly desirable job that pays great wages and people are beating down the door to get hired, especially in this economy. She sounds like an enormous twatwaffle.
