Unfortunately that's the way of the world. Good jobs, benefits, long term positions, bonuses - all gone due to outsourcing. And other companies
buying current companies and then knocking people off one by one and reducing worker's previous working rights: breaks, hours, changing full time to
p/t and temporary.
This is a huge, huge battle right now. I am the result of outsourcing and I will never have the same job or same benefits or pay, etc, etc as I did.
All because my country gave away my job to another country and now the people working at my current job don't know how to spell, never mind how to do
the same task day in and day out. It's going to ruin our country/countries and economics.
Time to rethink the whole work mode. Don't know how but there's got to be something we can do to fight this. Or let me rephrase that: something we
can do to find ourselves in as good a position as previously because all they've done is used us for so many years and then spit us out. I worked for
30 years at my specific job and gave the company my all. And I"m still waiting for my references - we all keep asking but nothing shows up. Nice kick
in the face.
But somehow, some way I will find a way to kick the dirt aside and rise up above.
I feel for you, really do. At my age, 49, good luck. I'm up against the younger crowd, my skills need serious upgrading or a new job career. No one
will want to hire me at my age/limited skills. I now have medical issues (time related) and so my job options are even more limited.
It's a new and sick world. Perhaps the job centre can train you at their expense? This is something I have heard through the grapevine but not sure
Don't let THEM get you down. We can rise up above this greedy world.
