    I had to take time off when my aged mother got out of hospital,the place was so slack that the office never told the boss that I rang to tell them,and the young guys who wanted my job spread the word that I had a heart attack...When I went back,I was sent to a "quack" who did the company medicals..(unregistered foreign doctor),who was a complete idiot,wanted to send me to hospital in a ambulance,when my truck with all my tools and equipt was parked ouitside in the street.The young guys kept up the B/S that I had a heart attack...and even today the old boss (retd) asks me how my heart is going.When I quit ,the young guys found out who kept the place running after they busted everything with their carelessness..

    I think a lot of the problems with modern management is that they no longer promote from the floor, because they require degrees for those positions. I have no problem with higher education, as I have some myself. However, we in the firearms community saw first hand what can happen when the Golden Boys at Remington thought that anybody can make a Marlin lever action rifle and moved production down to South Carolina. They didn't have the people who knew what to look for and how to fix it, and they really didn't have the smarts to figure it out for themselves.

    Another problem where I was ,is that managers were made criminally liable for workplace injuries and environmental breaches.......the new manager was a complete idiot ,mainly because of the state of the whole operation......the new owners wanted the place cleaned up but with no reduction in the massive profits that cost cutting and safety and environment breaches had brought the two old guys who owned the business previously......It was a once a marvellous place.....a business with up to 100 employees run by two old time collector/hoarders,and a million ton of interesting old junk in the yard. And plenty of spares for the old plant and machinery.

    I won't offer any legal advice but I hope you find gainful employment soon. I also hope you find a new source for lead. Good Luck on both accounts!
