Congrats on 30 years at the same Company Al! That's a real achievement in the world today. Hopefully retirement is in the near future for you. I have worked since the age of 16 and until this job have never been anywhere for more than 5 years, most places considerably less than that. I have been at my current job for 12 1/2 years, but the future is not looking all that bright at the moment. I have had several weeks of layoff already this year and much more is projected throughout the coming months. I'm trying to keep a positive attitude and looking at this as an opportunity for a change for the better. It's crazy to think that when I finally reach retirement age, I'll have put in nearly 50 years of work.

When companies started dumping the define pension plans towards k401 plans with some type of contribution on there part I wasn't sure how it would work out for people but when jobs  change for one reason or another at least  they can build up some type of savings for retirement

Yup-  Just no loyalty anymore but to the CEO's & shareholders..  You are lucky to have held that job so long in todays throwaway world..  I've got 20 years and I'm staring down yet another sizable layoff @ the end of the month... :wallbanging:
