What's the deal with paycuts

This seems to be something that happens every year, even if the economy is better.  This is not the first year I have heard of layoffs or paycuts around Christmas.  What are these companies, Scrooge?

It is the winter-time when most people fall ill, and in fact, a lot of people die beginning at holiday time.  I don't know why this is but even if the hospital admissions trend down in a poor economy, there are still the older people and very ill who seem to pass around now, or fight for their lives in the ICU.

It never ceases to amaze me when I hear about transcriptionists going through this when they need money most.  I think they should set up shelters in every stage which gives people who are laid off during the holidays food for Thanksgiving and toys for kids.  Remember scrooge who kept the poor guy there on Christmas eve? These companies ask us to cover holidays while they cut our pay. 

I often wonder if this is because the suits get their bonus around the holidays and they have to cut what they consider the fat. To them, that would not mean their golf outings or their boat docked in the Bahamas or funding for their offshore office overseas, it would mean the production worker, the MT.

Someday, MTs will figure a way to develop a USA union and that would not be run by the founders of the once-called AAMT.

So sorry to hear everyone's bad news here.  My heart goes out to you.  After all, we are all in this together!

I am with you about USA union. That is the only way we can survive the Big Cats.
