You are no longer an employee, a worker, or labor. You are now an ABSORBER Absorb. to take in and make part of an existent whole. In a down ecomomy with record job loss and money scarce, the corporations have made record profits, see the third quarter results, while creating little to few jobs. How? you, or should i say absorbers. the people who are left hanging on to their job, are forced to absorb the extra work form the people who are no longer employeed. when they cannot, they are quickly shown the "at-will employee" law by the company. Call in the temps. we will give you work only if you can absorb.We promise nothing permenant, including insurance , and cannot offer anything more than a few months. Fed Ex is a master of this, so is U.P.S. now the republicans, Fred's pals, are blaming the unions, the ABSORBERS, and the poor for the problems in this country.We voted for the people wu believed would "do something" but we are still looking. The worst part is now I may have to say "I make 30+ an hour, have health insurance, and a few dollars in the bank" nobody wanted to listen when it counted.nobody wanted to listen when it was time to vote. ABSORD. Do more in les time so fred can make more money while doing no work.
