just got laid off

i havent talked to you guys a whole lot lately because ive been studying for my licenses for the apprenticeship that im in now. so heres the short story.

detroit public schools has been mishandling money and has decided to lay off several of its workers. as of friday, 200 more people (in addition to almost 3000 previously) have been laid off from my department (engineering) and were holding a rally thursday at the spain middle school in detroit. the address is:

4:00 pm thursday
3700 beaubian
detroit, mi 48201.

its right off i-75 between mack and warren. if anybody wants to show up to support out union, they are more then welcome to come out. anybody is welcome and also the news is going to be there so it could be a good opertunity as well to get your club on t.v. at the same time. if youre coming out, post up.

i was kinda hoping for it a while back but the school board really doesnt know what its doing the way they made the cut... they could have saved money by cutting positions that are budgeted that arent filled but they cut bodies instead.. so where is the money for the positions not filled? oh well.. i got an interview at a power plant in soo saint marie later in the month if things dont change... lol watch for us on the news. thursday.

Well, you did say it was painful, I imagine you were doing something wrong, maybe some instructional videos or books would help
