    Yeah, you ain't kiddin. Here lately, I've been rotating around 1,2,3. Each rotation is 4 weeks. And I work every other weekend. I just got off 3rd shift.... Weekends are time & half which is nice. My job pays very well and there's nothing else I could do (with my experience) to make what I do.

    They've got me by the *#!!BEEP*#@!

    Unless you're on the front line puttin' "our boys" back together there is no way you should be working those hours, time to adjust. Good luck.
