Mortgage Payment & Job Blues

May 5th, 2017 at 01:34 pm

Mortgage Payment today: new balance $45,268.89.

HELOC is now up to $44,500 but progress is/has been halted for a couple weeks now due to massive rain/flooding.

Goats will start to go to their new homes this month, along with one more puppy.

Husband is feeling super bummed at his job. Business has been slow and he is bored/worried they will lay off. He is actively looking at new jobs. There are a couple positions that pay really well/have good benefits but he didn't want them in the past because they work swing shifts and we don't want to work different schedules. But since I am now mostly working from home, husband has decided swing shifts wouldn't be such a big deal anymore. Once he gets more vacation time in July, he will go take the tests for them.

Also bummed because it appears that he isn't getting a raise again this year. His bosses are still getting bonuses and raises, but they have really been greedy towards employees the last couple years. It didn't used to be like that, and he is getting quite scour. I think this is due to the business being turned over to the next generation in the family. They do not treat the employees like their parents did... His first year he got a $3 raise. Since then he has only gotten one $.25 raise. They used to buy pizza for everyone on Fridays, Christmas bonuses were twice as much, etc. All that is dwindling, despite the business making tens of millions more in profit each year. He said job morale for everyone is at a low. What a shame for the younger generation to ruin a family business.

    It sounds like a rough situation for your husband. I think it's true that 2nd gen is often a lot tougher to work for. What kind of other jobs is he looking at?

    I wonder if DH would consider applying/testing now...taking vacation between the dates of leaving current work and starting date of new offer! I too worked briefly for 2nd generation when initial group passed on. We were all overwhelmed by their Trump style of management and what they didn't know in spite of a business degree.

    Your poor husband. Greed certainly makes it so bad when they think of the bottom line and not of the folks who help them make that bottom line.

    Good luck job hunting.

    Snafu when I say he is waiting for vacation time, I mean he is waiting for when his vacation hours reset so he can still get paid for the day he takes off work to test. lol
