I'm another member from Alberta. During the huge job and housing boom we had here a couple years ago, my friends were all telling me I was crazy for staying at the warehouse manager job I had. They were all jumping from one place to another for a couple extra bucks here and there. Now many of them are getting laid off.
We've were told last week that there will be no raises this year. 7 people worked in our office and I'm the only one in the warehouse. The secretary retired and we won't be replacing her as we have slowed down some recently. But we've been told that the remaining 6 of us will remain employed for the forseeable future.
No raises kind of sucks but we do okay and have great benefits, too. I feel very lucky. And very happy that I opted to stay here when I could have gone elsewhere to make a couple bucks more. Those jobs have mostly disappeared now, while mine is still here.
