Yes, we are going through that, beside our supervisor and her boss, there are 8 of us in our transportation/trucking office. Our entire company (1500+) have been given a 10% wage decrease accross the board, with upper management taking a 15% decrease. Four of us in the office are paid hourly, and we have all had to reduce our hours to only 32 per week. The other four are salaried, so they still have to work the 40+, all 10 of us, must each take a one week lay-off per month on a rotating basis. (we do get unemployment pay during that week) Of the 125 truck drivers we have, we also rotate them, and ask that they take a 2-week layoff every two months.
Times are tough... it sucks, but we still have jobs, and our seniority...vacation pay, & health insurance..... We do the happy dance each day we come to work and our keys still open the doors!....
