Must be the fear of loosing good workers
I was called to the board room yesterday and offered a pay rise (not much) as recognition to my good work
"You deserve more blah blah, .........recession blah blah.............work increased but cost to the bone, blah blah.......thank you!"
I must say that it felt good
Good luck tpatterson
I must admit that I wouldn't bother to look for a different place doing the same job, not even for money

QFT - and this is why I'm not out the door already - I like the people I work FOR, and a lot of people in this company really make it worth doing - however -
I'm not currently doing prepress, it's a management gig I currently do in a division of the company totally unrelated to printing - I have no passion for this business, I do for printing, strange and stupid as that sounds. I understand it a lot better than this business, or at least I think I do. After 10+ years in print shops I would hope I knew my way around better than something I've done for 1 year.

I used to do prepress for this company, and have been exiled to the island of forgotten toys after being canned (for helping a csr understand exactly why I wouldn't touch his self-made nightmare) and rehired 6 mo later in this job.

Blood-Sausage?


oh biiiiig time - even better - "Untouchable Blood Sausage" - the kind that must have something else going on that prevents them from being canned, because if it was you, you'd be long gone.

I had one once, untouchable... he's gone now. :evil:

It took me three years of relentless bitching, but when Management finally realized I was on the level, it was a matter of hours.

The prepress blood sausage I had is still there, sitting in my old chair, collecting my paycheck. Still useless, blind (literally can't see the damn screen) and can't follow the simplest of policies or procedures... I nearly killed him when I caught him opening my pdfs in Illy - when there were already native indesign files all complete and pretty just sitting there. That's a management issue - he's not untouchable, just comfortable. And he does whatever idiotic thing a csr asks him to do, regardless of whether it is right, wrong, or suicidal.

This current one however has a "hold" on someone and is nearly untouchable, short of having the same last name as the owners. I'm not sure to what extent it goes but I have a pretty good idea.

Yikes. We got a few of them too. I don't like shit like that, and nepotism should be illegal.

Hilarious, this one actually complained about nepotism when I hired a bindery person's son to work for us.

We have many family members who don't work here but receive a pay check every week. How eff'ed up is that? But like I always say, as long as I get a pay check, they can do whatever they want with their money.  :death:

This one's not a family member - that I can live with, you take care of family. There's something else going on.
