What to do...

Maybe it's much too early in the game
Ooh, but I thought I'd ask you just the same.
What are you doing New Year's,
New Year's eve?


Well. That is the question, isn't it? What AM I doing on New Year's Eve? Am I calling out? I support the cause. I am MadAtFoxwoods (dot com!). But, unlike many of my coworkers, I'm on the edge of good graces with the company already. Will the coworkers pay my bills if I lose my job? Would I get fired? Why wouldn't I?

I don't know. Maybe that's being chicken. Someone, namely US, have got to show the company that they can not abuse their workers. There may not be a legal limit to what you do with your "we don't answer to anyone", but there is a limit to what your workers will tolerate when you are bleeding them and laughing at the bank. Then you have the ever-loving NERVE to bitch the workers out for not doing enough to make you more money?
I mean...Honestly.

And we've already made a difference. The last note the new Pres sent down to us was the most polite missive I've ever seen from the company. No longer putting things in quotes to belittle us and threatening us, as has been his M.O. It still held some threats, but they were couched in polite language. "We shall be increasing security in the parking lots and all entrances for your protection." (AKA, we'll haul your arse away if you try to set up signs or have a picket.)

I don't know. Stress stress stress.

Rumors are flying. Lots of people not showing up tomorrow and the day after. But lots of new workers being brought into play. Lots of strange arrangements being made by management to put warm (and semi-warm) bodies in place.
Hell, I could be a supervisor.

Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it's exactly twelve o'clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year,
New Year's eve

Maybe I'm crazy to suppose
I'd ever be the one you chose
Out of the thousand invitations
You received

Ooh, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance:
What are you doing New Year's,
New Year's eve?
