    Back in 2010, after working with the right "channels" and getting nowhere for 4 months, I went to the top of the organization. One muckedy muck tore a strip of me because I made him look bad in his region. He did not show up to yesterday's meeting and sent another to do his work. What took well over one year was done in 15 minutes yesterday.

    Mamma Mia!

    LOL! And to think you called yourself a grade A chicken! If youre chicken, I dont know how to describe this dude for ducking you & sending someone else to do his dirty work for him.

    I still think youre awesome for standing up for yourself like that.

    Congrats! Did you have to fork out any $$ initially to fight this ( legal costs?) If so knowing your keenness you likely got that reimbursed too. lol!

    Thanks much.

    I think "The Man" knew that some Ontario labour laws were being violated so they moved carefully. "The Man" also knew that there was a drop dead date approaching very soon, according to their agreement with the province. I hinted that there may be some legal council advising me.

    "The Man" should have settled in 2011, at least by New Year's Eve. By dragging it all out, hoping I would give up, they will be paying Ontario vacation pay in 2012 since I was still their employee in February.

    Most of the time I am a chicken.
    As I get older, I think my tolerance for "garbage" decreases.
    So, I won't take as much as I use to.

    Just joined Kiva.org, an organization that funds micro-loans to people in developing countries. I love the idea that the $25 I saved in groceries can be given to a fish woman with 5 children in the Philippines to help grow her business.

    You are so right.

    Media tells you young is best. Young is cool. Young is the thing to be. Reverse the clock and be young again (with their products, of course).

    Slowly, slowly I am getting a smidgen wiser with each birthday.
    It helped me with this battle.
    Thx.

    thank you geniemom.

    If The Man was a Smart Canuck, he would have settled this in 2011. Now The Man still owes me vacation pay for 2012 (provincial labour standards).
