numerous discussions here
I have been following numerous threads here and I have a question.  If many of the MTs here are dissatisfied with what is going on with the industry, then why do all of the MTs not stick together and demand what is deserved?  I understand that we all must have an income because we all have bills due and mouths to feed; but, it would not take but a few days for all qualified MTs and Editors/QA to demand benefits and a bottom line cpl/hourly rate or whatever you want to call it.  Kind of like a union.  No company could exist, even with newbies or off-shore doing the work without the qualified MT backing all of this up.  I am not looking to start a war here.  I have just read on this board for quite some time about this same issue, but nobody seems to want to take action.  I know for a fact that if ALL MTs would stick together here, the end result would be very favorable.  It seems over the last number of years these companies are demanding the MT to do more work and have much more knowledge for much less money than they deserve.  So, with that being said, why why why would you not demand your just pay?  Again... I know for a fact that if ALL qualified MTs would stick together, they would have no choice but to pay a standarized fair scale in order to keep their doors open.
All MQ discussions to the MQ board, please. (NM)
There are discussions about this company at least
every week.  Tons of post in the archives. They recenttly posted they got 500 resumes for 25 openings.
General discussions here say should get AT
I've been avoiding T-day discussions.
I've hosted T-day, Christmas Eve and Easter for the past several years. I'm tired of it. I spend two days cleaning, shopping and cooking. Relatives tell me they'll show up but don't. I have to plan on 32 or more people per year. We shell out a ton of money each time for food and beverages. I wind up cleaning for at least another day afterwards because the nieces and nephews drag everything out of the closets and off the shelves, and their parents don't even ask them to pick up. One of the young ones in potty training invariably pees on the carpet because their parents can't be bothered to put vinyl pants over their training underwear or use Pullups. The younger kids take food into the bedrooms, which my own kids aren't allowed to eat in the bedrooms, then I find nasty rotten food in the toyboxes or dressers or ground into the carpet. Ew, I can't stand letting toddlers run around the house with food and uncovered cloth underpants. Somebody always shows up sick and spreads their germs to all of us. Nothing like sharing your stomach flu! My neighbors get mad at me for my relatives parking in front of their house and threaten to call the cops, which the cops said nobody owns a public street and we can park wherever we want to. I'm the one that always gets "appointed" to host because I work fewer hours than the other women in the family and our living room is bigger. They've got fewer kids than I do and more time off. Maybe we can just cancel it this year and stay home without having anybody over.
I think there are two types are care/discussions going on here(sm)

On the one hand there are the elder parents who are still very functional but maybe not able to live alone.  In that case I feel they should move in with the middle-aged children or vice versa. 

However, on the other hand, there are those elder parents who are no longer able to function and require 24-hour nursing care.  In this case, I think it would be better if they were in a nursing home setting where they could get the around-the-clock care rather than the children having to pay a private-duty nurse.   Yes, the elder parents, when they are young, provided for and took care of the children.  However, we're talking nursing care at this point.   And the other argument is:  How far do the middle-aged kids take the nursing care?  Do they get to the point where they're having to sell their house and belongings in order to keep the elder parents at home?  JMO

There are numerous ones.
Start with your ISP, may offer free storage space. Google for FTP storage or online storage and you'll get lots of hits. It's hard to decide for you.
Break time is for nonjob-related discussions.
If we could only discuss MT and nothing else here, I wouldn't come here.  I don't want to talk about work if I'm not working.  Boring.
Don't think the worker privacy acts cover discussions such as this...
more likely they cover things like credit reports, evaluations, etc. It's rude to discuss in front of others, but not illegal...of course, in the US you can sue for anything.
I believe they got rid of the too numerous boards - sm
because it was getting totally ridiculous. There were boards for everything under the sun it seemed. Posts were being moved and locked because they should be on a different board. Many, including myself, thought it was getting to be a bit too much. So luckily they listened and trimmed it back down to something a bit more manageable.
Are you in an area where there are numerous hospitals??

If so, maybe some of them have their own departments and you can get hired inhouse.  That's what I finally had to do in order to get the pay and respect and steady work that I needed.  I'm working less than full-time and making 30,000+.  You may have to work in house and follow a set schedule, but at least you'll have a decent job. 

There are numerous studies presently

taking place concerning this relatively new medication.  Below is a single example of Fosamax prescribing from the "norm."  If I were typing that report, I would type it verbatim and not flag/question the physician's dictation.

                                            FOSAMAX DOSING

The prevention dose is 5 mg daily, the treatment dose is 10 mg daily. Alendronate should be continued indefinitely. Although discontinuation of the alendronate does not result in the rapid bone loss seen with HRT discontinuation, a gradual decline does occur, so some maintenance therapy should be utilized. The dosing may be modified once optimal bone mass is restored.  One could then consider the 10 mg dose to the 5 mg prevention dose daily, or perhaps to 10 mg every other day.  A once weekly dose of 70 mg or a twice-weekly dose of 35 mg is presently being evaluated as an alternative-dosing regimen but has not yet been approved. (Study results pending).

I heard it was awful, by numerous people who saw it.
oops "WERE" numerous complaints...lol
The slow versus fast talked about numerous times regarding VR
I donít have any idea where this ridiculous statement started from. Think probably from the haters who are probably going to be put on VR and digging their heels in to not have to do. Rather than rates, which I think probably are about the same, 4 cents per line, you should ask who has the best platform and go for a company that perhaps does not have a zillion employees. Being slow, being newbie, etc. would just work against a good person for VR.
I have asked numerous times if people like the Amherst office but seems no one ever offers their
opinion about that office. Just transferred there and I am sure many other MTs on here work out of that office.
