    A choker setter didn't show up Wednesday another one did not show up today and I have had a processor operator out all week on medical as he is just deteriorating. I'm not sure about every other industry but I could guess that they're all in the same boat.

    We had a great team working last year and this year. Very few are still there and the boss complains all the time about how no one wants to work anymore and everyone is lazy because after 6:30am to 5:00pm everyone wants to go home. Interesting how everyone who quit had the same reason can you guess what it was? The boss. I know this is not the case everywhere but i find it funny how my boss does not understand that you can not always go yelling and blowing your top over a small accident if you want to keep employees around.

    Where i use to work i had the best boss i could ever ask for. I had to leave because i could not deal with the other idiots he had to keep around due to lack of workers. Its rough ride been a employer these days.

    There's never been a better time to be an employee or a worse time to be an employer.
