    Near me is a group of facilities that refurbish and service military equipment.
    They have been basically the only ones hiring for some time now.
    The workers have started getting letters telling them of mandatory unpaid time off.

    They're hiring yet they're giving mandatory unpaid time off?

    I don't get it.

    Excuse my poor writing. They have been hiring, but apparently no more.
    I just found out about this yesterday. I expect no more hiring except to replace critical persons that leave.

    Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries. Is that critical enough? Where do I apply?

    LOL, wrong type of critical.

    Great reply though.

    You would have to move to Fayette county KY.
    and likely be paid under $12/hr.
    Not a bad job for around here though. We are a red state. Blue states tend to pay better.
