    Yep that’s government/union workers for ya. They’ve been behind the walls of Fort Hood too long—we civilians in the real world are laughing at them what a bunch of crybabies. They’re as bad as those UAW workers.

    Well JIML, it happened to me yesterday I went home at 1500 my regular hours are from 0800 to 1700 hrs. I will leave today at 1500. You see in the real world not enough work the company can’t waste money on labor. In our production areas sometimes they don’t come in Thursdays and Fridays. Outside of Fort Hood people’s hours are cutback all the time you don’t see us crying about it. Another reason when I pulled the pin I refused to work on Fort Hood. Like I said a lot of people don't feel sorry for you people. Last time the Government shut down you workers got paid to say at home sitting on your rear-ends. So welcome to the REAL WORLD!

    JIML I think Strangelove's point was that you never cared when it did happen to Strangelove and quite often were among those declaring it was necessary, because it was good business.

    So now that it is happening to you, don't expect anyone to rush to your defense when Republican policies finally take a nibble out of the paychecks of so many who support their policies.

    Dr Strangelove. When was the last time it happened to you, and do you speak for a group of people or do you have a mouse in your pocket? The bottom line is if you get your hours cut we don't celebrate it.

    Welcome to the real world. People on the outside get their hour’s cutback all the time. A lot of us really don’t feel your pain.
