    dude i really feel bad for ya, but you gotta do what ya half to nowdays seeing how scarce good jobs are! seems like thats all manufacturing wants to do now is work folks 7 days a week/12 hr a day, and in a lot of cases swingshifts. i tured down two really good paying jobs when my company moved to mexico because of that. 12 hr/7 days, and the other was 12/7 and swingshift. you have no life at all that way, and they dont seem to give a s!!t. :mad:

    Jack,

    There are these wonderful things called "mental health" days. Ya pick up the phone, call into work and say, "(cough) boss, (cough, cough) I can't make it in today (cough) cause I think I have the (cough, cough, cough) bird flu".

    If you are real lucky, you get paid sick days and that makes those mental health days twice as nice... lol

    Dang man that sucks, yea I thought there were laws against that many hours. 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, Im not a mathematician but thats 84 hours, that is twice what at lot of people work in a week. Im not sure on the laws but that really sucks. Sorry to hear that man. The paychecks outta be good though.....maybe more new stuff for next year?!? You gotta look at it on the bright side! LOL sorry man!

    Hey Jack, I feel for ya and will ask the fish gods to shine brightly on the days you do get to fish. My best friend works a machine shop here in Dayton and does 7 10hr days all the time, his advice, is most of that overtime goes to taxes and what little extra he makes, his wife spends because she is bored since he is never home. Its a vicious circle:crying:

    Jack, check your PM's, Maybe , just maybe, me and Bryan can help .

    One of my close friends is doing just that 12/7, I really don't think it is good. I told my bud, yep your making a lot of money, heavy equipment operater, but you can't spend it if your gone. I use to work long hours to support my family when my daughter was growing up and missed the most of it, really sucks. I worked as many hours at my main job then part time at another one. Good luck bro, hope it all works out. We are just, PAID SLAVES, to the rich, they could care less as long as they get more money, which they already have more than they can spend in their lifetimes. Of course it's important to the filthy rich to be able to say, I HAVE MORE MONEY THAN HE/SHE DOES.

    Lets see 12 hrs work plus 1/2 hr lunch... 1 hr to get ready for work.. 1 hr to get to work and home... total 14 1/2 hrs.. 4 hrs sleep.. ( you don't need more than that do you.. hehehe)... that still gives you 3 hrs or so to fish:crying: :p :mad:
