Since you know so much Mike, how long is our country going to be engaged in war and when will there be a need to cease making equipment needed? Since our government can't give a definitive date to end war, maybe you ought to step in and give them some more of your usual inane advice on a timeline.<quoted text>You said "big new contract" not "military work". So change the story to fit the actual facts now.
Again, if it was "big" I would assume one person working a bit extra would not be "big". If it were a "contract" I would expect them to know for how long or how much might be expected to produce.
Guess you can't understand when different companies bid for contracts. I would think making parts for tanks, planes, ammunition etc would be considered "military work" since their contract is with the military. I'll let you figure this one out on your own as I've drawn you a road map. Start by getting your head out of your butt and you may can think.
