It,s true, in keeping with government policy to help handicapped people, everyone over the height of 6-01 will be laid off to give the shorter people a chance to excel!

The Army Depot is about 300 people overstaffed. They have already layed off any temporary employees, have instituted a hiring freeze, have offered buyouts for early retirement, and are going to be laying off people by the end of the summer.

They are offering buyouts, but they have not started the process yet. They offered buyouts to a couple of guys that I work with.

My husband got his pink slip last week so this Friday he and many others are out of work. And the buyout is only for people with more than 20 years there.

His boss told him the manpower would be cut below half before the end of summer.

Was he a temporary or a permanent, although doesn't sound like it will make much difference, but why haven't they talked to employees as a whole?

The Colonel Has little to do with it.
If the Government tells him. "Hay your over staffed." What's he gonna do be like. "Don't care."

And ya the base is pretty bad overstaffed.

Remember your paying for the operation of the base. Its tax money.

What the He11 you been smoking? Nothing is going on like that. Government is cutting back , thanks to them sending the money to places that don't deserve it, and the temp hires and the term folks are getting let go first. Simple as that! Not Fair but that's the program. No Mexicans!

How does a furlough and a reduction in force sound. Let's cut jobs and take your money. Does anyone see any one being mad and or upset when they get a notice they are losing money and their job. I would say security will help de-escalate any situation. Opps sorry security already at mission failure. Some general just took away the over tiWell if the gas don't get you the idiot policy makers will. How does a furlough and a reduction in force sound. Let's cut jobs and take your money. Does anyone see any one being mad and or upset when they get a notice they are losing money and their job. I would say security will help de-escalate any situation. Opps sorry security already at mission failure. Some general just took away the over time for all emergency services to respond to any accidents. In other words if some one does not show up for work no one replace him. Working down and pulling guards from more important areas to cover less important areas. No fire to respond to fires no ems to respond to the several heart attack victims . No mutual aid to Madison Co from the fire department here at the depot. But it sounds real good to hear that the political clowns making policy can sleep well. And Obama can take plenty of vacations . I'm glad american are blind to what is going on and if the media tells them something it must be truth. Please call your state leaders and let them know that the blue grass army depot jmc general is putting lives in danger.
