    Wink But Why...?

    Gloved One,
    Why would you leave NJ? It isn't the taxes, is it? Or the sea gull sized mosquitoes? $650,000 for a 2 bedroom ranch couldn't be the problem. Or the fact that the state government is being run by the Soprano's. And surely it's not because of anything the company does to it's bread and butter employees, is it? C'mon, spill it.
    p.s.- Just messing with you. I'm actually jeolous. I'd love to leave, but the wife is real close to her family. Good luck wherever you land.

    I like the way to tell it. HOw it is. You'd tell someone you make 140,000 or so a year and it's like wow. But you tell them what it cost to live here and then they change there wow to dammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. lol. On top of the fact I really don't like the fact that we don't get medical when we retire or my pension is garbage. lol Well don't need to tell you. you already know. I've been looking into many companies and you still can get those good bennnis. Be good and work safe bro.

    Mike,
    You're right about that, I've realized that for quite awhile. However, what I recently realized is that I'm selling off years of my life for approx. $110,000 per year. And for what? Thanks to this Exelon merger bull****, my eyes were opened to the fact that front line workers don't mean **** around here. Now that it didn't happen, the company has been stroking us ever so gently again. Well, I've seen through it now and I don't have the same motivation that I had before. I have a 9 yr old son that I can barely find time for. I cant get these years with him back, nor can I get back the years of my own life that are racing by. I'd love to go somewhere I can slow things down a little and enjoy my time on the rock, and give up being an absentee father because you have to make at least $100,000 a year to live anywhere near comfortable in NJ (*and at 100k, it's not really all that comfortable). I appreciate the talent to earn that God has given me, but there MUST be a better way to live. But again, the wife is real close to her family and I have to respect that. Essentially, my point is that I can make it here, but why do I want to anymore?

    p.s.- I know it as (P)ark) (S)leep) (E)at (G)o home.

    It's hard picking up and moving to a new place. but i have to try it out. Don't have kids yet and I know if I do it wouldn't be easy to move. As far as the company being nice to us. I beg to differ. They are installing GPS systems in all our trucks. They even sent out a letter to all the locations saying that at this time it wouldn't be used to dicipline anyone. Bull **** trust me on that. They always cry broke but why waste the money with GPS. All so it was stated in the AP that PSE&G made profits 48% higher or something like that. I'm just tired of all the BS they give us. I'm going to try of find someplace else. Hope the grass is greener on the other side. lol

    NJ,
    When I said they were stroking us ever so gently again, I meant that they're trying to make us believe that all is good and they want to live in harmony. Meanwhile they are loading up the GPS software for "safety" reasons. Yeah, ok. Whatever. I've also heard the old "we're broke" song. It really pisses you off when management calls an all-hands meeting and can't set up a pot of coffee, then later in the afternoon, you see the catering people rolling out leftovers from a managers meeting. Now I know that they aren't obligated to cater meetings, but they can't swing a cup of coffee? PSE&G is that ****ing broke? I can't feel sorry for them after they lose $40 mil on "day one"celebrations and plans that never happened. This is the exact bull**** that is sucking the joy out of working here. When I started in Oct. '99, I was thrilled to be here. Now, it's just another job. That really blows because at one point I LOVED coming to work here. Oh well. I guess I'll just keep on cashin' em on thursdays.

    NJ;

    Geeeee go figure????????? and you really expect me to believe that the reasoning behind putting the GPS systems in our trucks is for wanting to "know our locations and permiters for other line hands?"

    BULL S**T!

    Like you said and will soon learn, it's a profit margin, an array so to speak that they will create in order to make sure that they have enough resources available at any particular problem so that they can service the area within a reasonable amount of time which is BILLABLE! which means MONEY! and INCOME!! and PROFITS!!! and last but not least CONTROL!

    I honestly feel sorry for the people under benefits 2000 and think that things should be different. Do i have control? Of course not. I am not to blame as are thousands of other seasoned guy's. Heck I wouldn't doubt the attitudes amongst us are "Hey, sorry you guy's came so late..." but when you have a few (less than 10) years to go, do you really care????

    Of course not!; you'll take your last three best and get out. C'mon thats life!, your parents, fathers, grandfathers etc... went through the same thing.

    Times change.

    Just remember, now that the merger is null and void, look back at what they were trying to produce and what you have now.

    Your answers are staring you right in the face.
