Default Employment

If any if you guys are looking for a job and you have experience in industrial maintenance check out Western extrusions at Sandy lake and Highway 35. They need maintenance technicians for all three shifts and the starting pay is 25 an hour. Typical work weeks right now are 65 to 70 hours. They offer good insurance, retirement, and they've never had a slow day in the 50-plus Years they've been open. If you can produce you will have a job until you feel like retiring.

Yes. My buddy works there and is desperate for help. They will take anyone who will show up on time with a good attitude and a willingness to learn.

This world has become strange.

I know a donut manufacturing plant that is at half employment, easy job, 50-60hrs a week, $18 to start and raise in 90 days. Pre covid 100 employees. Can't get above 60 employees now. Guess no one needs to work because that's decent money here.

If anyone is looking for the same industrial maintenance work FedEx Ground is hiring too. The hub in Hutchins and the facility in Mesquite both are needing maintenance techs.

Most people I talk to have nothing but good things to say about you, but you sure come across as a condescending prick. Do you have an inferiority complex you've attempted to overcome through overachievement? Or were you fondled as a child?

You and slow99 should date. You both have passive aggressiveness down pat.

Our company is going through same thing. Let go at least a 1/3 or more of staff when lockdowns happened now we can't hire people fast enough to fill positions and have very high turnover for the ones we do get so not getting back to numbers we once where.

Well if you wanna dive into that a bit, $20/hr ain't shit anymore. I remember when I was a teen looking for a job, $20/hr would've been the holy grail. I'd have been wealthy. Now it's like minimum wage. It's 41k a year if you do a full time job. To get the real money out of it, you need to work some overtime while still making sure you don't fall into that higher tax bracket where it turns out you worked a 12 hour shift for fucking free. I'm sure that shit tons of free work gets done every year for that reason. People not paying attention.

So it's not all as it seems, there's a lot to consider. These days the numbers they put out there are just bait, and then you find out what the real story is later. Nobody wants the donut factory probably cause you don't have a life and when all is said and done you made ok money. I've done lots of factory work in my day, you usually end up living there to make any kind of money, then after a year or two you burn out and quit, and you're looking for something else to do with less pay but more freedom.

That is not how progressive tax brackets work.

Doesn't have to be how progressive tax brackets work. I'd work my normal days, the boss would say "Hey you want some more money? Work overtime for me!" I'd do it, check was lower. Checked it out, that's what happened. I even showed him my check next time he asked if I'd do overtime, and he never asked again. It's happened to me more than once. In the oilfield I had it knock off more than $100 once.

Granted I haven't worked hourly since trump made all those changes. This was years ago.

That guy doesn't know how anything works. Remember when he wanted to use a lawnmower engine to run his alternator to reduce parasitic drag? He's that guy.

When I first got my hands on a Dynojet I tested out everything you can think of including using a leaf blower for a Supercharger. You'd be shocked at how well that worked
