Another Casualty of the Bad Economy

I've always given my employer a lot of credit for being so supportive of my efforts to go back to school, even allowing me to take courses during the day and flexing my schedule to accommodate.

Well, the good times are over here too, it seems. I was notified that full-time employees would no longer be allowed to take college courses during regular business hours. In these tough times, they want to get everything they can out of their existing workforce, and I get that.

When I was taking lower division anthropology courses at the community colleges here in Phoenix, that was no big deal-- most were offered at night. Graduate courses are another issue entirely. This severely restricts what I can do, and certainly eliminates any possibility of attending NAU any time soon.

Lots of thinking to be done...

Paul, so they notified you "that full-time employees would no longer be allowed to take college courses during regular business hours" ? Are they kidding? I almost can't believe they would do that, but then again, what can we expect. As you know, I left that world a few years ago. I just couldn't take it anymore. I had a boss who blew a fuse when I tried to take 4 hours off after I had put in overtime (with no pay) of 60 hours... :) Unbelievable... Hang in there. Don't give them everything. Just give them enough.
Tare Care,
Claude
