61. Figures it comes from someone in a Right to Work for LESS State!
Edited on Fri Dec-02-11 05:54 PM by RoccoR5955
OK, then when her hard drive crashes, and she needs an new one, if this thing gets passed, I hope that the person who fixes it doesn't have OT, and doesn't work the extra hours needed to get it fixed.

These people know nothing of how much it takes to do this kind of work. They don't know what a chore it is to clean up other people's computer messes... ESPECIALLY with Windoze! I guess the Mac is no better. Not to mention the questions users ask, that they could find out from a simple inquiring from within the help files, or for cryin' out loud, the whole damn Internet!!!! Sheesh, where do they think we learn this stuff, and get our patience to deal with their crap from?

Today, an IT worker is more like your plumber or electrician, because the devices have become as ubiquitous as a toilet, or a lightbulb. Why should we be paid as executives, when we are actually doing the grunt work of the 21st century?

Just to add, I am a civil servant, described as a "Microcomputer/Network Support Specialist." Don't let the title confuse you, if ANYTHING goes wrong with the network, servers, muckley mucks' computers, they call ME, because I know all the systems. Sometimes on weekends, or at night. I am also union, so I do have protections, and I doubt that NY will become a Right to Work For Less State any time soon.
