Well thanks for the encouragement/kick in the pants, folks. I will of course be sucking it up while I’m there. However the prospect that I would be on this shift for no less than a decade barring something highly unusual, I’m looking for the door.
You see, it’s a union shop, so no amount of hard work or good attitude will do anything. Seniority only. Meaning I will not see the light of a day shift for approx. a decade, one of my co-workers explained it to me (who is next in line for a day spot, etc, etc).
Just pissed that I was snookered. I hate dishonesty, and they were most definitely dishonest with me.
