sort of rough goin here after Kroger closed our plant after i had 29 yrs of service.
Ah. Suck City.
My dad has the same thing happen after 29 years with Saulsbury Fire Equipment. They sold out to Emergency 1, with a 5 year guarantee to stay open. He told me that day, "Well, I've got 5 more years." He was right. He got 29 weeks severance.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
