MLK day is coming up soon and it has got me thinking about those who do what is right.

A few weeks ago as I was getting off the train my keys fell out of my pocket and due to the lack of sleep, I didn’t even notice (#momlife).

I would have traveled for an hour and a half without them, rushed over to the car and then realized they were gone. My baby would have been waiting at daycare and I probably would have cried.

...but instead, someone on... see more

Saw this post on Facebook or somewhere and saved it because it's SO true and sharing it with this group.

1- Cover your ass. Take pictures, get it in writing, scale everything, get a dashcam and run it all the time.

2- NEVER trust a dispatcher.

3- Never enter any place you don't know how to get out of. Throw the brake, set the 4 ways and walk yourself in. always make sure you can get out.

4-. Don't screw over the next guy. Leave the truck... see more

Juror #8: It's always difficult to keep personal prejudice out of a thing like this. And wherever you run into it, prejudice always obscures the truth. I don't really know what the truth is. I don't suppose anybody will ever really know. Nine of us now seem to feel that the defendant is innocent, but we're just gambling on probabilities - we may be wrong. We may be trying to let a guilty man go free, I don't know. Nobody really can. But we have a... see more

After 7 years, I only took one day off because I was sick and no vacation, I had to quit.
I was loyal. I worked on salary 6-7 days a week. 12-15 plus hour days.
It was becoming physically and emotionally exausting. I would ask for time off and get a response of it is what it is.
I've been 9 days out of work. Been looking and still looking. Nothing yet.

Keep on pushing bro

I have been working for the last 3 years in property management. I am 60 years
old, and can't get a permanent position. I have worked for a temp agency, been
told I do fantastic work, but getting a full-time permanent position, I am never
offered. The other evidence is on-line when you apply for these jobs, they are
asking your birth date, and when you graduated from high school/college.
Why does this matter, if you are healthy and willing to... see more

Hello, fellow jobcasers,
I have had the blessing of being asked to be the worship minister at my church (for pay! YAY!, but only PT) and I just was hired up for a PT position at the local elementary school as a music teacher - 1 day every other week. I have been a musician since high school and I love both positions and would prefer very much to keep them. However, I need something FT with benefits since I am coming up on 60 and my health is... see more

Just go for what you want and that will benefit you in long run
