Do you think they will try to stop the bleeding by having a different pay scale in the larger metro areas.
It would not surprise me at anything they may do. Totally out of touch with reality.
I know hindsight is 20/20 but had I stayed at my previous company and not come over here, I would be getting 6 weeks paid vacation, paid for everything ( sitting and waiting, traffic delays, fueling, breakdowns, etc.) and most likely would have been retired and drawing a monthly retirement check (and I am still going to get that retirement from them even after leaving over 20 years ago).
Here the max is 3 weeks (and they think they are making a HUGE sacrifice by giving that how about those absence points?!!!....RIDICULOUS) and there is no increase in sight.
They don't get it and they never will get it. Let's not forget that these are the same rocket scientists that bought thousands of new spring ride trailers. That should tell you all you need to know right there.
