Osha in there infinite wisdom made a rule that lineman cant work more then 16 hours without a 8 hour break. Screwed you and it screwed us because after 12 hours we went to double time. They send us to Wisconsin to work and by the time we got there and on the job wed work a couple hours and have to go to the motel for 8 hours. All we wanted to do was get things fixed and get home. We used to go till we about dropped. I once worked 41 hours straight. We were told we could work till we wanted a break. We were even told back then that if we got tired to feel free to catch a couple hours of sleep in the truck on the clock. I could see a 24 hour rule but 16 is just silly and it adds to outages and cost customers more money in the long run because they not only have to pay for motels but they need more lineman because there always some off on rest time. Even lineman were controled by a socialist organization. As is the rate you pay for power which is determined by the public service commision and the rates you pay a direct result of this green energy bs that has shut down so many coal fired plants that produced clean energy. Hold on to your wallets because your going to soon see electricity so expensive it will be a luxury not something you take for granted. I have a buddy who still works in the main office. He told me that what going to happen is the power companies already are allowed to charge more for green energy and you have an option to buy it if you want. There changing it and giving government incentives to power companies to subsidize it in the future and you will pay for it whether you want it or not. He said they had a meeting last month and the board was talking a 25 percent increase in the next 2 years and another 25 percent spread over the following 2 years. All with the blessing of the government. Socialism plain and simple. Power for the rich and free power for the poor and you and I will foot the bill. That is if we can even afford it.
    Yes sir, I'm on a co-op and these guys are good and fast, I really must give a shout-out to Slemco
    February elec bill was 48 bucks, If we see anything above 150 in a month then that's extremely rare and usual in the summer months that happens!
    They are the best !
