How's business? Is it busy or quiet where you work? Any trends?

I’m curious. It’s pretty quiet here in the islands.

Thanks all.

Only one major corporate competitor...we are slammed with orders. I’m grateful. I know it’s not like that everywhere.

Retail and food all begging for workers. Office buildings stay 90% space rented or better and the big names in town are adding gobs of new space.

I am over 70 and retired. If I wanted an accountant job, I could name my terms.

Dump has been in office. Started in 2011, and when 45 got into office, things started going downhill.

I'm still doing my old job remotely because we can't find another sysadmin, and we have two line production jobs still open. Northern Virginia is its own world, though.

Bringing in new products, and amping up supplies of existing ones. Semi trucks of materials unloading early every morning, and deliveries coming into Shipping & Receiving all day long.
