The Fed Is Out of Tricks, and Down we will Go

The Fed has cut interest rates effectively to zero. But that won’t solve the problem. If you are out of a job or your company is heavily indebted and running in the red, the bank won’t give you a loan. In a depression, economics terms interest rate... —  read more 

Censorship by pro corporate snowflakes

What kind of #$%&#@ company is this?!

Seriously, what kind of sh*thole company is this? I'm having to deal with a whole lot of management types above me who don't know their a$$ from a hole in the ground. Even the basics they're clueless on! Craft seems to have it together and know... —  read more 

Extra $600 a week

Unemployment is paying an extra $600 per week on top of what you would normally get. In most states that equals almost $1000 a week for the next 4 months! Plenty of time to stay home safe and look for a job somewhere else while still getting paid.

CWA COMES TO THE RESCUE !

Thank You For The 20% Raise

T gets a lot of grief but they finally got one right. In a time where many Americans are losing their job, front line employees will be receiving a 20% hazard bonus. I for one am very grateful! Thank you T!

Is 20 percent enough?

People are risking their lives every day in the field. I've checked around and other companies have given their employees who are at the highest risk due to being in constant and direct contact with customers much more substantial bonuses. Don't... —  read more
