Yeah, that’s how it works now in the new economy. I worked for over 25 years as an Industrial Electician/Controls Technician, complete with higher education, training, and experience to boot. After that time, I’ve seen my wages cut in half, told I have to do twice as much work for half the pay, and threatened with firing if I wouldn’t work for what the unskilled workers were getting paid, or get my job shipped to china. Even after biting the bullet and complying with all of those requests, I still lost my job to some shithole in china that the company owners sold their business to. So, I decided that nobody here gets any support from me, especially if they’re so quick and willing to sell out the American people solely to turn a quick buck. Unfortunately for all of the respectable business owners out there, you will be unfairly lumped in with the privateer types so dominate in industry today.

These companies wonder why they can’t find good help. It’s because they’ve made a bad reputation for themselves, and nobody in their right mind will work fork them.

I said goodbye to manufacturing a number of years ago. Too hard to make a decent living. I had 35 years experience in management and accounting and I have found that the skills learned pay much better outside of manufacturing.
