I undoubtedly do not understand today’s youth. Working hard for a job is not their number 1 priority. However, when I was a young man, I worked hard to find a job that was full-time. It became almost impossible to find full-time employment with superb pay in addition to solid benefits. Most of our friends wound up in the mines or on the farms. I had to spend numerous weeks in an apprenticeship before I could learn a trade. Then, during those numerous weeks, I had to work 50 hours each week without being paid. I l acquired how to maintain heating systems, in addition to boilers, during my time there. Now, I can barely get our employees to labor 40 hours without complaining about overtime. I own a small Heating, Ventilation, in addition to A/C maintenance dealer! The two of us specialized in clean energy for Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C energy. My company has been around for 20 years, and as time goes on the employees grow lazier & lazier. Last week, I had to fire more than one of my HVAC workers, even though he has been working here for 3 years. The other worker was a recent hire from last week. These 2 employees decided to go out drinking together and while they were out, they got into a bar fight. They were arrested in addition to being held overnight in County Jail. I bailed them out in addition to providing them another chance. Last month they were arrested again, however this time for a DUI. I have no choice however to fire both of these HVAC workers. I am worried to lose them both because they could have had a talented in addition to, a promising future. But, I can’t put up with that behavior after giving them another chance.
