Where is the loyalty

Hello everyone. I came onto Boiled Over today to express my feelings about a company’s loyalty towards an employee that has worked for many years. Yes I am speaking about myself. My name is Chad I’m the screamer you see when you log into my wife’s and my blog. That’s me aright. I am the Ironworker you probably have read about so many times on this blog. I have worked for the same company for almost thirteen years. I have worked many hours and sweated blood for my employer. I have even bled for this company. I’ve had my arm literally ripped open and even cut the top of my thumb off. I never miss work and I am one of the best Ironworkers in the company. So I’ve been told.


There is always a slow time of year for us Ironworkers but it’s never affected my job. Usually when everyone is laid off I’m still working. Well guess what, I’m laid off. Some of you might be thinking this guy has a big head. That’s not the case. I have a work ethic that I stick by and that is when you are at work you give110% every day. Right now my employer has about 12 people working none of witch has been employed longer then 5 years. I say to myself where is the loyalty of an employer that I’ve worked for so long for.


I’ve tried to call him but he does not return my calls. I’ve called all the foremen in this company and they don’t have a bad thing to say about me at all. Now at this time my wife and I are struggling to pay the bills and might lose our house. I’ve started to work at home like my wife does. It’s a bit trying but I’m getting use to it. I have been learning a lot about working at home because I have my wife to help coach me. It’s not really my passion. I would rather be up high on the iron than sitting behind a desk. I guess I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do. Plus I make much more money on the iron. I’m not sure if this will save our financial dilemma but we are trying. Stacey is much more advanced then I but she’s been doing this work at home for the 13 years I’ve been an Ironworker.


I don’t know, I guess I was feeling a bit like my avatar looks and wanted to Boil Over. Stacey has made up an e-book that might help a lot of people that are going through the same things I am. It’s called The Guide to Earning a Weekly Paycheck Working at Home on the Internet. I think it is an awesome program and I am now using this while I’m working at home. Anybody that is interested in working from home should check this out.


I’m still stuck on the whole loyalty issue but I’m getting over it. I’m also making money at home and hopefully I’ll make enough that I won’t have to work on the iron again. After all it is probably the most dangerous job in the world. Feel free to comment or send this off to a friend now I must get back to work. Stacey is now my boss and she a whole lot better looking than my old boss lol.

    This is absolutely outrageous. I cannot believe after so many years of dedication, sweat and time they gave the audacity to lay you opff and keep 5 year experienced worked employed.

    You must admit this must make you re think how loyal the company is or how good of a company it is to work for. Anyone that gives dedication and commitment like you did deserves first pick at continued employment in these hard economic times.

    What do you plan on doing if working from home doens’t cut it?

    Will you be looking for new work or waiting for the re hire process?

    p.s You work him hard Stacey haha! Too funny!

    Hi Brian…it’s great to hear from you. I’m so glad that you still visit our blog! No worries about the work at home thing working out…that’s why I’ve been MIA for so long. I’m working over 50 hours a week and could more in if I like too, but my goodness I have to see my family once in a while.

    Chad will return to Iron if offered a job…he loves it too damn much not too. This damn economy just sucks…Michigan unemployment rate is like 17% right now…just crazy.

    The worst part is we just seen the “big boss” of the company he worked for at a wedding in July and Chad told him he would travel anywhere in the state for work and still nothing. He’s just a jerk business man that thinks numbers not people and I despise those people. He can hire some guys for less than my hubby and the number work for him.

    Until then…I have Chad writing posts and promoting Boiled Over and my Work at home site. Everyone should know there is a chance to make money at home doing what I do but I’m working on getting the word out on that.

    I’ll do my best to support Blog Engage…I love it! In the meantime I have Chad posting and tweeting and totally working his butt off during the day!
