This article really upset me. My father had me when he was already 45, so he’s kind of an old school guy. He taught me that if you work hard and dedicate yourself to the right company, you’ll be taken care of. Well back in his day, that was true, but apparently not anymore. Every company out there just wants to pump and dump their employees, and “loyal” is a code word for “beaten down”. For those that have told me in the past I need to change careers when things affect my pay, well I’m not the only one. It’s happening to all of us. Luckily I at least have a chance to make a ridiculous paycheck should my performance dictate it on a given much.
