Ah yes. Now here's a topic too near and dear to my heart. I went through two plant closings inside of three years which was caused by corporate takeover. The new owner has been selling off pieces for over ten tears now. I never did find a comparable position with another company when I finally ran out of options. I expect my age, over 55, may have had something to do with it, I don't know. Now I'm retired and working my a** off with rental property remodeling and home projects. In fact, I need a vacation, bad.
I remember back many years ago when it became fashionable to outsource manufacturing work. Everyone in corporate management was pushing it to increase returns. Now the fashion is to outsource service and support work. Have you tried to get Customer Support lately? If you can get past the computer-pushbutton-hell, you're as likely as not talking to someone halfway around the world with a accent that only vaguely resembles English. It struck me after one such episode recently that we are on a fast track toward living in a third-world environment, virtually if not actually.
Can't you see yourself in the nursing home saying, " Darn! Wish I'd spent more time at the office instead of wasting time with family and friends."
