Thread regarding BNSF Railway layoffs

September Started Layoffs

Well all the rumors are true Resource Protection started cutting jobs yesterday in Topeka and Vancouver Washington. A small number to start. 7 employees were either fired or offered positions somewhere else. I know because I am one of them on the cuts. I can’t leave Topeka and live in Fort Worth on 50k a year. They knew people like me would not accept a position in FTW because we can’t afford it. But on a positive note with all the money savings they will be able add a Salary Band 32 job as it was announced conjointly with the layoff announcements. Think real hard before you refer a friend or family member.

Sorry to hear it. But $50k? The bottom of the RP pay band is $67k.

I can't tell you, baby, what went wrong
I can't make you feel what you felt so long ago
I'll let it show
I can't give you back what's been hurt
Heartaches come and go, and all that's left are the words
I can't let go
If we take some time to think it over, baby
Take some time, let me know
If you really want to go
Don't know what you got 'til it's gone
Don't know what it is I did so wrong
Now I know what I got
Just this song
And it ain't easy to get back
Takes so long
I can't feel the things that cause you pain
I can't clear my heart of your love, it falls like rain
Ain't the same
I hear you calling far away
Tearing through my soul, I just can't take another day
Who's to blame?
If we take some time to think it over, baby
Take some time let me know
If you really wanna go
Don't know what you got 'til it's gone
Don't know what it is I did so wrong
Now I know what I got
Just this song
And it ain't easy to get back
Takes so long
Do you wanna see me beggin' baby
Can't you give me just one more day?
Can't you see my heart's been draggin' lately?
I've been lookin' for the words to say

Wayne’s world is much bigger than analogies or other Salary Band 31 with direct more than 0 direct reports. Good response. Stooge

Wayne's world was a movie, with a show as the pretence. Terrible analogy.

AVP has/had the entire freight claims department in the same building working for months from home. Some still haven’t been in the building for over 16 months. Great choice in firing the people that came into work everyday. “Essential Employees” until not essential. It’s like a bad episode of Wayne’s World.
