    They ramped production, forced OT, got the new plant going and product out, then pulled back the OT. They met their goals and no employee's lost their jobs..meaning he didn't have to hire people only to lay them off...and they are back to normal working hours.

    I'm sure his workers are happy to be employed....

    If they would hire more "utility" workers they wouldnt need to force the ot on anyone , but this is just beating a dead horse, im sure the workers are happy for now, til next year rolls around and its the same ol same ol

    Once OT becomes manditory daily is the time I start looking for a new job. My family is way more important than the damn company. I have to work ot on ocassion. Thats fine. It doesnt matter what anyone else works. I dont give a shit if the manager worked 100 hours a week. I wouldnt just because he does. You will make the employees do just enough to get by..

    uhyyyyyyy
    Did you notice the story evolved with the cometary? Funny thing I have noticed, the person telling the story always decides how it ends. If lets say a guy wrecked havoc with moral and got moved to another location; would he tell it as a promotion or a defeat in his version of the story? Kind of like if a guy was to work, gets fed up and/or fired and goes back to work for the same company multiple times, does he say he's been with the company for the entire time or tell you it was multiple short stints? Sounds better if you make it out to have been there for a long time right? Kind of makes you take the whole tale with a grain of salt ;)
