Mon-Friday this contractor shift is better than altice...

Post ID: @Csjh+1h3b9kTn

When a well has gone dry and you're thirsty, how many times are you going to go that well before you realize you're never going to quench your thirst there? Done is done.

You each know much more than you realize and your skills and experience are transferable to other business' and industries. And yes, I know before you say a thing, you may not make as good money at first but that's just life. Do a good job and hang in and you'll move ahead just fine.

Nothing is gained without a little bit of risk. For the sake of your health, happiness and sanity...get to work finding a better way to earn a living.

Contractors are the future of Altice and this is the proof. Nobody wanted to believe it, especially the union shops that think they're "protected" but here we are.
