    Salary Keeping Pace with Inflation?

    Our previous 4 year contract expired last June, and all wages and everything we're frozen in place. Which was good, we didn't lose anything... but my class was due to get our 4 year pay step increase last August, riiigghhtt after everything got frozen, so we never got that, which kinda sucked...

    I've managed to avoid it to the best of my knowledge lol. We have a couple guys out on my crew right now, with symptoms but repeated negative tests, supposedly one was diagnosed with a sinus infection though.

    For us a holdover is only 12 hrs (not the full 24) and is entirely voluntary. They CAN force us if the oncoming crew is below minimum staffing (i.e. only 2 guys show up, as 3 is our minimum crew). But even then ots usually only for a few minutes, up to an hour while they have someone from a...

    And back doing background extra today. Nothing fancy, no Tactical fear/fireman/etc, just being a "hotel bar guest" but hey, hopefully those will be down the road

    Apparently I'm a black cloud lol At least according to this Station I worked OT at (one of the ones I used to work at before, but been a couple years since then). Slower Station, less than 300 calls per year. Come in for the PM shift (8pm-8am) and boom, we ran two calls in that shift. They...

    Staffing today is slaughtered. 5 guys on our crew, one on vacation, and two called sick, so it's me, one other of our FFs, and they had an Engineer come down from another station to be our Acting Captain

    I bought it! Lol Great price, socks it's because they're going out of business altogether, but with same day delivery (Heck they loaded it into their truck and followed me home right then and there!) Less than $500. No more futon for me lols

    We were doing our inspections/pre plans yesterday and one of the business was a wholesale furniture place, but they were moving and had a 60% off sale. Saw a nice couch with built in recliner for like $500 I'm sorely tempted to go back for today lol

    Working OT at my original Engine company today. Since I left, they got a brand new station built for them (the old one can practically fit in the app bay of the new one lol) That and they have their new truck (when I was here they were still rolling in a 1990 model year) so everything is both...

    Apparently me and the other guy on my Engine seeded a little karma... at our Dept Storeroom yesterday he traded in his boots for a new pair (the Haix station boots that we also use with our Brush Gear) and we both traded in our old Brush gloves for new ones... Yeah we ended up on a 4 hr multi...

    COVID VACCINE - The Megathread

    We're still wearing N95s or at keast surgical masks (mostly N95) to every medical call regardless. I'm in this and don't like it^ 😅 I guess there's a perceived higher risk going to a sick person versus just out in a store, although we probably should since we're still a high risk state.

    Why isn't this guy running for President or director of Space force

    I'm gonna say I agree this guy has racked up a very impressive list of accomplishments and is far more deserving of praise and fans than most celebrities or politicians people tend to worship instead. If he ever does run for President he has my vote At the same time his successes do not drag me...
