rjohnson11I went into semi-retirement 1 October 2020 and moved to Scotland. In a few years I can start drawing some pensions.
aka_STEVE_b$400 is more than we get for 20yrs. Every 5 we get a pick out of this cheesy gift redemption booklet. Every 5 years the gifts to pick from go from up about $25 in value .... so at 20 yrs it's worth maybe a $200 item to pick from.

Dabadger84Hey you're better off than some, I got laid off thanks to the pandemic after 13 years at my place of work, and thanks to new ownership that was taking over as the pandemic was shutting stuff down, they haven't hired back a single person that was laid off early last year - they don't want to pay our higher wages when they can hire "new" people at minimum wage.I feel like I wasted a third of my life there, to be honest, and I have nothing to show for it, literally. Congrats on being close to retirement & what not though, that's awesome & good for you as well as RJ.
Nereus I thought my work might have starting cutting staff, but not yet fortunately, they're just relying on natural attrition (of course we now have fewer people to do an increasing amount of work, but that's another story). Not a single promotion for anyone in my division for over 10 years at my level, no matter how hard we work or how much $ we add to the bottom line. It's pretty demoralizing.
BranuzDamn i cant imagine staying at one job for that long unless its truly a dream job.
