First post.. and a tough one. Ive been lurking here for a while.
Long Story short: old company: poor economy forced layoff- lost my job.
new company: worked there 5 months. Japanese owned/ran "samurai" style.
I had worked there 5 months. At the one year employment mark, i would have got a weeks worth of vacation time. Also the FMLA leave act would have covered me.
They have a ZERO TOLERANCE attendance policy. If you don't have vacation time to cover it, you can not miss one minute of work.
Sunday the 3rd. my first child was born;Cesarean. We were released from the hospital tuesday the 5th. I stayed home with my wife for one more days for her/me to get some sleep. i returned on thursday. Long story short- now I'm fired, with a 2 week old baby.
I'm needing work in the E. TN or W. Nc area. Any intersting offer in any "outdoorsy"
location will be considered. I'm a career machinist and competative shooter. I have never been employed as a gunsmith, but do all my own gunsmithing as well as for close firends. I want to get tinto that area full time.
On a brighter note- I bagged a whitetail at 313 yds with a 16" carbine AR- with my deer sweet wife sitting next to last fall. Thanks.
