There is also no possible way to get a raise unless you move to a different position. There are guys who have been working there for 20 years that make the same as new hires.

He applied for a job as an apprentice at the local power plant. It's about $10 more per hour starting and once he is no longer an apprentice it should be another $3-$4 per hour raise.

I hope he gets it.
i'd love a government job like that

getting a steady paycheck without having to actually work would be awesome. think about how much herbalife you'd be able to sell in your down time

I guess it sucks.

His boss wants him to always be doing something, but his actual job appears to be taking 4 trash bags out.

They give him 10 hours per bag per week.

They don't even get full in the entire week, he is always asking to do something else, but that's "stepping on someone elses toes."

He isn't even allowed to help clean up the bays where the mechanics work, that's their job. One time he got to ride in the fuel truck when one of the county trucks ran out of gas. It was a big day for him.

Twice he got to drive up to Boulder to drop off/pick up a new truck to get some lights installed. They drive the new trucks 182 miles to get lights put in them at a privately owned shop, with the highest taxes and hourly charge in the state, even though there are like 5 county techs who wait around for 7 hours a day for work.

For a while there he would sit and look through ALLDATA on the computer, you know, learning about cars but I guess that got pretty old.

$16 per hour.

For reference, Mcdonalds starts at $15.50 per hour out here, or it at least did for a while. I think it's dropped to $13.50 now.

For a 1br 1ba apartment here it's a solid $1400 per month in my city if you don't want to have your tires slashed.

You could probably find $1100 in the shitty areas.

Further towards Denver in the nice areas it's probably closer to $2800.

Then I'd sublet it before even getting down there but tell them the rent is $700 a month and to avoid that dude that lives there. I watched Oscar the grouch do it on Sememe Street.

Lol Rachel's brother and sister rent their basement out to a girl from their church as a courtesy.

At $700 per month.

They considered actually renting it to someone for money and figure they could do over $1000 per month.

They also live about 20 minutes outside of town on dirt roads.

My job is somewhat like that now that I'm floating and not rotating. The past 2 weeks 3-4 of the work days involved me just walking around trying to find something to do/fix.

Drove the fox today and it's incredibly strange. I sit in the dumpsterfire and it feels like I'm sitting down low in a race car. I sit in the fox, which is just about the same damn chassis, and even using the original GT seats from the dumpsterfire, and I feel like I'm driving a bus. Explain that.

And fucking magnets, how do they work?

Oh god, death is way better than being autistic. At least that's what mommyblog.com told me.
