I don't have much time to write today. Really not much time.
Some folks have gotten pretty angry about the reduction in food rations. So much so that they've threatened to strike if we don't come up with a solution. I'm only writing a post at all because one of the conditions on which they agreed to continue working while we try and find a solution is that I make a post about it.
They want everyone out there to know that we're struggling. That for all the help we've made a point to give to others, we aren't getting offers in return. I'm not putting my two cents in on that at the moment, because I personally think that trying to help others shouldn't be something you expect to build credit with.
And while I'm generally not all that thrilled with the idea of caving to threats, I would have posted about this anyway. Not to mention the practical aspect--we kind of had to agree to their wishes. We need those people working, or a lot of problems would crop up that we'd have a hard time dealing with. I know that I'm admitting ho weak the position of everyone who isn't threatening to quit is, but it's also the truth.
I'm going. I may post again later, but for the moment I have to try and work out what steps we can take to get more food here with my team. They're smart folks. I hope we can come up with something good...
