    Yeah, I had no idea either. What fucking bull****.

    I saw an interesting take on Twitter. Your clock should start the second you leave your front door. It incentivizes big corps to push for housing closer to jobs. Now, I'm not a huge fan of that in my field because ei don't want to live effing anywhere close to dense industrial, but I like the idea in principle.

    Either way, it should be illegal to not pay someone for time on site or travel time between sites or non-resident locations.
    Travel time is something that is currently being brought up in regards to Sports Officials (kids/high school) and their pay rate and how it's not enough.

    I'd be curious to see how traffic would play a part in this. For example, I can make it to Downtown Chicago in about 45-50 minutes with zero traffic. During rush hour, that can easily double in bad weather or a particularly bad traffic day.

    The folks in the comments I’ve seen online are right, unionize and get back pay. What BS.

    Got a note this morning that we are cutting a few hundred engineers at work.

    Good thing I'm retiring Friday.

    And a friend of mine was told this morning that he's also retiring this Friday.

    Last night as part of an assignment, I did a deep dive on the link between ADHD/Autism and employment issues. Without even modest support and understanding, the TL;DR of all my research is:

    Leela: I can't see anything; are we boned?
    Bender: Yeah, we're boned.

    I always knew that and could never believe it.

    insane that had been that way. The others better follow suit or they’ll be seeing some attrition

    I wouldn’t say broke, but there have been many times I have left work frustrated and mentally exhausted. The population I work most with right now is adolescent substance (ab)users, ranging anywhere from a kid getting caught smoking weed (remember where I live), to kids who’ve been brought back more than once after OD’ing on fentanyl (again with where I live). You’d think dying once or twice would humble someone. Nah. Most of them are spoiled, selfish, entitled a—holes who you do everything for, and then the one time you say no, you’re the most worthless, piece of fucking sh-t staff they ever worked with. I expect it from them, I love them anyways, and I have a thick skin, but being told by multiple patients you fucking suck does wear on you sometimes. I just remind myself they aren’t mentally healthy, they need my help, and most of them have awful, and/or non-existent home lives. I also make sure I am taking good care of myself in all facets at home. If you’re not in a good headspace, your patience for your patients will not be there when it needs to be.
    I am certain you have empathy and a thicker skin than most of us. Even if that woman was all over your a— the other night, you are still providing her a quality of life she wouldn’t have without you. She may not ever thank you for it, but you are. Think where some of those people would be if your group home didn’t exist. Once you get your advanced degree, the experience you’re getting now will be invaluable. You got this.
    Today, she started again and I accepted that some days, I'm just gonna have to be a big meanie.

    Question for psych and others who have worked in similar situations:

    Ever dealt with an incident that broke you?

    Last night at my job, I had a resident in behavior protocol for over three hours. She was screaming at us, spitting on us, said "f you" frequently to us, banged on the office windows hard to get our attention, etc. She does this often and I agree with other coworkers who believe this person should be transferred to a home where they are equipped to deal with behaviors like this.

    By the time she finished, I barely had the energy to finish wiping down the kitchen or finish charting.

    The guessing was the money, not the firms.
