New Job for Y

Y got a new job within the same company.  He previously worked rotating shifts for 8 months out of the year, meaning that he would work one week of 8-4's, then one week of 4-midnight, and one week of midnight-8's.  He worked 4 out of 5 weekends.  It was very disrupting to our life.  I also had to try to keep Lil Punk quiet when he was sleeping on the weekends.

A different job came up at his company that was more along the lines of what he did before.  Management knew that he wanted it so they did an internal posting and he got the job.  We were actually worried that if he got the job, he would have a paycut because he made a lot more money because of the shift work. 

He got the job and they kept his pay at the same amount.  He will have regular hours now but be on call sometimes. 

I'm so happy because this just works out so much better with our family.  I'm thankful for the blessings in my life :)

  6. That's awesome! I think rotations prematurely age people.
