I'm sure there's a reason WHY you are the highest paid in the company -if they are smart -their not going to throw talent out the door because of temporary economic issues

i'll send some KARMA your way Brotha!!!

Hang Tough!!

. . . I feel your distress Brother Ron. Things are slow all over. We dumped 7 people earlier this year, two were 30 year men and a couple others had 10-15 years. We just had a 5% pay cut announced for January.

I'm in the same boat as you . . . in as much as I was recruited, brought in at an elevated pay gradeand considered overpaid by other staff. And since I don't play office politics and am aggressive on the job . . . they would rather have seen me out the door . . . At least I know what I'm worth . . . 5%!!!!

I dont really have a huuuge problem with the decrease in pay, I can survive that ordeal, but turn a train wreck around in 90 daus is BS!!!:madd

if you call the bluff it can only go one of 2 ways. They either show you respect deserved from your experience or..... they show you the door.
