My old man finally found a job!

My dad is one of the sugar processing workers who have been locked out by American Crystal Sugar for a year now. He finally found a new job and it is even better than his old one. He will be working at a factory that makes parts for vehicles and machines. It's a unionized shop and offers excellent pay and benifits.

I'm surprised there are still mechanical parts factories still in this country, I would have thought they had all been outsourced!

1. Congrats to your dad, my dear Odin2005!

That is truly miraculous. Usually older workers have an awful time getting jobs, and people who've been unemployed for a long time are also discriminated against.

I think your dad must be something special!

2. He turns 59 in July.

I am truly shocked and amazed how such a good job he got.

He's a Labor Dem and raised me accordingly. he did a good job.

5. News like this is great!

I've noticed people are posting more about getting jobs now than losing them.
