    Pay reduction.......

    I got back from lunch today and found an email from our parent company (a Bank) that stated effective March 16th we would see a 3% pay reduction! What a roller coaster. First we have reviews and no raises. Then they announce they were profitable and gave us bonuses. Now we get an email telling us we will see a 3% pay reduction on our next pay checks. So were profitable but making pay cuts?!?!?!? Only thing I can think of is we are either not profitable as they say or since we took bailout money we have to meet some standards set by the government and show some sort of reduction in operation cost. Oh well who knows at least Iím still getting a pay check.

    Just needed to vent! And I thought Obama was going to fix all this crap!

    Not quite the "change" you expected??? I knew the man was trouble from when I first heard he was running for President.

    Not as disturbing as a pink slip. Most of those types of bad results, even during "poor" economic times, come from poor management strategy that doesn't take caution into account.

    The institution that I work for has apparently decided to pursue an ambitious course of expansion on several different fronts. They've succeeded mightily in spreading themselves too thin. Recently, they lost a contract to provide support services to the military, and as a result will be laying off dozens of contract workers. Good job, guys. IMO they were never equipped to pursue or make good on that contact to begin with, and should have left it alone.

    you apparently were making too much money for Mr. Obama so he is going to take your excess money and give it to the bum out on the street who has done nothing to deserve it. CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE he and all his followers should be tried for treason. So far he has broken every promise he made during his campaign. has spent in his first month in office more than W. spent in two terms as president.

    Sucks to hear, but companies are getting LAUDED for this route. Cutting 401(k) contributions, no bonuses, pay cuts, etc. Stuff they have to do to stay solvent, I guess. Look at FedEx.....they sort of started this trend. Sure beats a big ol' pink slip.

    It'll bounce back.....it sucks for now, but they usually reward folks for sticking with them through the hard times.

    Sorry, I did not get back to you sooner, My bad... Yup, I understand "Pinks" I got one of them almost a year ago. The competition for what positions that are out there is really unbelievable. Where the requirments for a position was a BS/BA degree is now a Masters or better.

    Sometimes, I'd like to be a fly on the wall to understand the thinking on situations like that.... If you ask now, What were you thinking, the reply will be "Sounded good at the time!" Just plain Disturbing....
