When this thread was started it was to share information about what we were hearing about our jobs. Not what it has now turned into, a pissing contest to put each other down. Lets not fall into the companies trap of dividing us up. Our only strength is if we keep together, and spreading truthful information. Remember if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything.
