I just found out they’re discharging patients now.

Our hospital was purchased for a mere $1 million. The entire facility. Local people bought it. The sale was hush hush. We’ve been kept in the dark. This was around May that the hospital sold.

Since then we’ve been bare bones and sometimes I work the entire floor solo.

The employees I have as friends on FB are furious and we’ve all been wondering what recourse we have.

I bought a house built in 1935 because it was super cute and reminded me of my grandma's house. I found out soon after that it's a kit house from the 1935 Montgomery Ward catalog, which would have only cemented my desire for it. I still like it, but so far:

$3000 for a skylight removal

$350 to re-route the kitchen sink drain after the existing pipe split under the concrete

$1300/winter average for heating oil so far, which led to

$2700 in electrical work to bring the wiring up to code so that I could get

$1200 in blown-in insulation.

But I'm building equity, right?

Buy some tools and become a handy person. I live in a house from the 30s too and have saved a couple thousand in plumbing bills with YouTube and some tools.

Also important to realize ones limitations. Installing a new toilet, yes. Repiping your house, probably not.

I've done a fair amount on my own, including how to restart my furnace's burner after running out of oil (YouTube to the rescue!). I've also done new outlets and light switches, and laid my own patio ($700 in materials, 60 hours of labor).

I've been working at Lowes for the past 5 months or so, and while there are problems with it, typically it's the business, and not (usually) the employees.

I bust my ass in Paint but we also have to do Windows and walls (which means blinds) so I have to take care of the busiest department in the store often with a steady stream of customers, while also having to take care of a department that's so committal it's a wonder they have us do both. Oh yeah. And usually theres only ONE OF US PER DEPARTMENT. Hell oftentimes I'm doing both completely alone

Setting up a detail can take 45 minutes for a single customer, but hey also mix these 3-10 new gallons of paint on rotation every ten minutes.

All while cutting blinds, and stocking shelves, AND answering questions AND being a tour guide.

They just dont give us the time or resources we need for customers. We have a new CEO so maybe try back in a year or so?

Not right now cause it's a dumpster fire but I hope we see needed changes.

Good for you for being g o e of the good ones. I am there at least once a week and will only talk to 2 employees there. The rest just could care less about anything. I imagine some are just shit and others are probably just shit on by management I to not caring.

Same here.

Mainly because of their business practices. But also for the shopping experience. If paying an extra $5- $10 for all my groceries means I don't have to feel like I'm going to get stabbed in the parking lot, then so be it.

The Walmart near me is in the worst area of town. Others may be different, but going to this Walmart is seriously like walking into another dimension. Have had nothing but sketchy experiences.

Well and f you are a person who is in the gray area of ethics call and say you think there is a dead guy under your trampoline. EMT and police show up for that.

The thing is you need to make it so he doesn't show up again.

Edit: Do not call and say he has a weapon unless he does. You want the police to get him out of there not shoot him

I haven’t ever supported white supremacy, why do liberals constantly like to lump republicans with white supremacists? “Progressives” don’t like being lumped with Antifa. IMHO both are outlandish comparisons and only divide this country further. Antifa being championed by the left will only embolden republicans in the booths in 2018 and 2020. My God, how could any rational, intelligent American in the USA support a terrorist organization like Antifa that shits on democracy? On the bill of rights? On freedom? The left will lose the battle on the hill defending Antifa and rightfully so.

No legitimate person on the left us championing Antifa despite what fox news says. We had a similar group in the early 1900s in this country with similar goals but much more violent. They were marginalized then and they will be again.

The problem is that the country is divided right now. The media makes a lot of money ey focusing on the fringes of that division and we eat there fear porn up. I am willing to bet a republican and Democrat have way more in common than a republican and neo-nazi or democrat and Antifa.

There's four of them responding to the parent comment before reaching your comment, which is about 10 comments down...There are certainly more people that seem to support Antifa then all the supporters of the KKK in the past 20 years.

You may want to check the maps of European countries from 150 years ago until today. The territory is a bit smaller. Also the majority of your leaders and population don't share your ideals, so good luck with that

Sounds like the advice of someone who used the cheap version and spent a good hour in the shop using every swear word they knew when they realized nothing was lining up.

You really pay for what you get with tools, especially measuring tools.

Guess I should throw away my free harbor freight measuring tape along with all the furniture I built with it then.

No need to get your jimmies rustled. If it works for you, do it. I have used their tape measures in a project by myself and it did the job. I have also had a foreman who would smash them on site due to them being off compared to other tape measures.

Cussed out is better than shot. Be careful where you get lost.

A tip from someone who has been on the employer side of plant shutdowns: Any good company will offer “stay” bonuses to keep on essential staff, such as engineers. These bonuses can be substantial and increasing as you stay longer (I have seen bonuses that went up from 25% to 100%). Also, new plants can take longer to build and strained relationships with other countries and trade wars can change plans completely. I have even seen sales contracts for warehouses and plants that require offering existing employees comparable employment.

By all means plan for the future and look for new work, but don’t take a job you will hate or with a huge pay cut to leave a job that could offer a decent to very good return if you stick around a bit longer.

Great advice. There may be a few opportunities to make this work in your favor. The natural reaction for you to think is "fuuuuuuuck" and that is cool for a day or two. Keep yours eyes and ears open. A good friend was just in a similar situation as you. People started leaving right away and they brought contractors in to fill the spots until they closed. The contractors were nowhere as good as the original staff. They gave him an offer to stay to the last day and would give him a severance of one month pay for every year he was there and continue to pay his medical for a year after they closed. He walked away with almost a years pay and insurance. He then moved to another city and found a similar job. His dedication to the original job help him secure the new job.

You answered honestly and took the down votes.

Is your concern that people will not work and thus remove money form the system to fund fire, police and things like social security or that you are working hard and it is offensive to you that others get things with out having to put in the same work or is it something totally different?

I am not trying to troll you or change your mind. I just get fustrated with the back and forth of Reddit without really understanding where people are coming from.

A real president? With worse numbers economically, job, and employment wise? That let an embassy be overrun and murdered? That drew a red line of Syria then walked it back and did nothing when they used chemical weapons on their own people? That also separated children during immigration and then issued a catch and release order that saw under 50% return and failed to fix any part of the problem? That did nothing about NK, or chinas trade policies? He also oversaw fast and furious where they were giving arms to cartels and thugs. Probably one of the worst presidents if you ask me but hey, facts don't matter?

Absolutely yes. Pick a place that will not suffer as bad with the changes. If you live in South Florida or the middle East you will want to move. You are way ahead of most people and will have time to find a good place to raise a family. Humans are extremely resilient. You have the knowledge, just make sure you use it.
