bend over....

I posted this over at 1098, but since I know you guys can relate too I'm posting it here too

So, I have a decent job...(I guess)
It pays a decent wage...(I guess)

Thankfully I also work for the gov't on the side, which finances a lot of my play time, but I digress...

So "the man" pulled another one on me today. Earlier this year it was review time, and raise time. My review was a great one, nothing but good remarks, lots of positives etc etc... It ended with a substantial 1.9% raise, and an apology and the "sorry that is just the way it is" speech. That speech was backed up by a "you can't rely on your raises to make the $$, you have to hit your incentives and strive for those bonuses" speech. So, 1st quarter ended this year and I was doing well. Hitting almost all of my incentives, getting good feedback and etc etc...

So today was the opportunity to view my paycheck, to see what $$ amount would be in there for my bonus money. Previously I had inquired about it, but everyone was really shady about it, like it was some kind of secret, no worries, I'll just wait... So I pull up the paycheck, and (I somehow expected this) NO bonus. Further phone calls reveal that the payout structure had changed, and instead of doing A, B and C you now are judged on X, Y and Z.

Ain't it always nice to bend over and grab your ankles? Being that I know what it is like to be poor and count out change on the table to pay bills, I can't complain too much. I AM thankful for my job and what I have, but somehow I feel "used." I've been kicking around the idea of looking for other employment, but we'll just have to see....

That blows for you Knee and my commiserations bud that does suck big time.

That's why I love contract work, you know exactly where you stand with negotiated contracts, penned in black and white, signed on the dotted line by both parties and I work for a US based company.

Contract work isn't for everybody but it definitely works for me.
