Just do it, 2000 - present
After spending over $15,000.00 to 'purchase' the job, I was finally allowed to enter the Engineering area, the job I had originally been promised before spending the 15 Thou. I was originally placed in the Lab in which the outward bound supervisor thought I was a spare day laborer. 2 supervisors later one of them finally checked and found out I was suppose to be an engineer in training. Makes one wonder about the 'supervisory' capabilities one encounters.

cut from leadman to doing the work of leadman, with a lazyman as leadman, 1988 - 1993
Myself and 5 other people started up the Glass Division of Oklahoma Fixture, including setting the machinery to be used to fabricate glass fixture for DILLARD'S, MACY and several other clothing outlets. When production started I was a Lead Man and became in charge of the night shift crew. i was responsible for setting the profile for grinding and polishing glass edge work for shelving and mirrored column covers. After 4 years and 8 months of working that position the owner of the business got upset with me because I had to apply for Food Stamps to feed my family because of the low pay. I was demoted to 'set up man' doing exactly the same thing I had done as Lead Man while the new Lead Man wandered around looking at the ugly women. The shop folded after a few more years, around 1998. The owner busted the company.
