My husband got his new schedule and it was quite a disappointment. He only has one day on the schedule. Now we will play the waiting game and pray that they can find him more work in another department. I know that we will be okay for a short period of time. His check really was tiny and we are grateful that he at least got paid a little something, but the next paycheck will not be good either. Just if we had some answers as to what is going on in his department. It worries me that they are not giving any explanations. We are still in shock that this is going on. In his 22 years working at his job this is a first . I hope that things are good in your part of the world.

That would be worrisome...several years ago my husband also had very few hours....somehow the bills don't shrink when the pay check diminishes. Hope it all works out.

Oh, how frustrating and worrisome! I'll admit, the photo of Fluke and Rudder yelling at Gerald got my attention.

I don't understand why they don't tell him something. Hopefully he can get more work in another part of it again. He deserves answers and he's been there a long time. Wonder if he can get some unemployment benefits.

I have tried to check into unemployment. I never got anything but a recording.

I hope not. My husband works for the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. Rumors are spreading , but we don't know what to think.

I'm sure you have thought of everything already so I'm sorry if I'm suggesting something you've obviously already done. I was wondering if he could contact the boss of his own boss to get answers since his immediate boss is giving him no information.

We have thought of this, but he doesn't want to bring attention to himself at the moment. We are fearful that they are getting ready to close his department.

I hope you guys find a way to earn until the answers come in. Jay was dealing with the same thing. They got a car and now they are working it out. today they made $20 so far. I think at least that is good. your situation might offer unemployment. Jay got it but it was way less than his pay. good luck.

It would help if you knew what is causing this dramatic reduction in hours. Explanations should be given to the employees. That would be the professional thing to do.

Try and stay positive, though I know from experience that's easier said than done. I do know, for us anyway, things always work out in the end.

It's a shame that he's not getting more work. But at least he got a little bit of work and a little extra money for you guys. Hopefully, he gets more work though.
