This blog is to mark events effecting my family life as a whole.
I have spoke about how my husband has been dealing with something at work. Well, it is effecting him even more. And tomorrow he must sign papers that have him backed into a corner that is not benefiting him or our family. Essentially being forced to move backward just so he can keep going forward. If he was retiring in 5 years he wouldn't sign. But since he has about 20 years left, signing or leaving are his only choices. His 2 bosses fought the VP for him. They believe in him greatly and went to bat for his unfair treatment. But lost. VP was in a mood that all is replaceable as long as the company makes a buck.
All companies are eventually like this and we understand why. It is up to us (him) to find a positive out of it. My husband is one of the best in his field. So, even though he will be expected to work more for massively less pay he is 20+ years vested. So he will use the company to certify himself even further ensuring higher advancement, and giving himself a better safety net if he does find something somewhere else or gets let go to save money. The plan is to make him the "it" guy. He already is within his company. But wants to make it so he can shop himself around better and generate a bigger want or need for him and his expertise. I back him 100%.
Holding our breath and jumping into this pool with both feet. And gonna go forward with all our might. And pray it works in our favor in the long run.
