Usually takes me 3-4 minutes to "make a deposit", 1 minute to wash my hands x 3 a day = approx 15 minutes a day.... damn... I need to start milking chitter breaks. Nothing like getting paid to take a "load"off :-D

I know, I know :WGAF ...Right?

You can thank the unions for that!!!
I have a sore spot on the union...they are the reason I got moved from a facility 5 minutes from my house, now to one that is 50 minutes away, and I have to tip toe around cause I am in someone elses building.. :x

Big 3 workers are not over paid.. The rest of the country is under paid..

Look at our history.. Back in the early 70's an average job would pay you $15,000 a year. With $200 you would have 2 shopping carts filled with groceries. A average house cost was around $20,000. A Corvette was around $4,500..

Nowadays an average job pays around $55,000 a year. An average house costs around $250,000... $200 will get the kiddie set in a shopping car filled and a Corvette costs $55,000... Do the match..

Also nowadays a man and wife are forced to work to make ends meat.. Back in the 70's the woman would stay home and take care of the kids.. JMO

Monte, I went into an Onan plant to re-engineer a line back in 1990. I was just out of school and had my first "real" job. I thought I was making good money. There was a guy with an pneumatic torque wrench running in six bolts on the line making more money that I did and had better benefits...

People just want more stuff now. I don't remember my dad having three new cars back in the 70's. His average house was 1200 square feet, not 3500+square foot and he didn't have a Vette.

Monty you're right on with that...... I am making the same thing I made 6 years ago.... slightly less. Actually, my business is making the same thing it was 15 years ago.... the Design field really got screwed after the computers caming into the picture.... Kind of a bummer and now we compete with India who couldn't design a cardboard box.
