Union Busting

2022.01.21 17:24 Wetslice34 Union Busting

I worked for the largest ISP in Canada. Took 40mil in COVID aid from the gov but also profited record amounts during.
I was the shop-steward for 8 of my 10 years working there. Needless to say it’s extremely toxic corporate environment. They fired me, no warnings, zero previous issues or punishments. Two days later the management moved their work stations from across and to the side of the building, over to the bullpen where the union employees sit at the beginning and end of the day. Right beside them.
Gross intimidation. But not surprising if you know the company.

Why was the whole"date knowing over timelines" never explained. Is there a reason for this like in the original zero escapes or do we just not know. This game was so good tho and I'm so hyped for the sequel!

2022.01.21 17:24 Mugwump_Reality Methods to deal with OCD? (Canada, Atlantic Provinces)

Disclaimer: I am seeing a psychiatrist and am medicated for these conditions
I am a little bit 'buzzed' from some craft beer (at 4:00 pm in the afternoon, I realise that's not right) and decided I need more resources/someone to talk to.
I'm fairly skilled in my occupation (IT security) but I was laid off after 6 months due to my reluctance to move to another province during a global pandemic (they cited other reasons, but I believe these were 'fluff' to justify my dismissal as I had worked as a contractor with no incidents with them for many years.) I received no help for nearly 3 months by the Canadian Government for EI before emailing my MP who had the problem resolved for me in 3 days (whew!).
Now I'm in the endless loop of trying to find a job. My LinkedIn profile is jammed with people trying to 'headhunt' me due to my experience (and the many hats I've worn in the past) but my motivation is lacking. I tried drafting a "schedule" to deal with my problems (as mornings are when most of my anxieties surface).

Feed cats (6:30 am)
Have Breakfast/Coffee
Walk (about an hour, hour and a half)
Job Search
Lunch (1 hr)
Job Search
5:30 quitting bell
No pot until weekends
I've been failing at most of these - I sleep in later and later (usually until around 11:10 am, although my cats are good at getting me up at 6:30 for breakfast- maybe I need to find a way to stay up? )
I have coffee but no breakfast, which due to my OCD medication/a possible ulcer causes me to dry heave. I try to have a muffin or hard boiled eggs, but I get distracted.
Walk: Doesn't happen unless I need to buy booze from the corner store 20 minutes away. Usually I listen to a 3 hour long radio show while I walk. (Maybe I need to leave before the Liquor Store opens?)
Job Search: I've been playing more old point and click adventure games then job searching. I have been putting out the odd application (and the aforementioned headhunters) but the majority of my day is slouched in front of the computer playing games. It feels like everyone is looking for developers and programmers these days - my speciality is in anti-fraud, anti phishing, and internet security (in general). Starting to feel like I chose the wrong field. I can read and edit most code, I just can't write it from scratch.
Lunch: Eh, my appetite is all over. I try to eat out of a sense of "normality", but I generally don't have an appetite for lunch.
Job Search: More playing the game "Disco Elysium"
Quitting bell: Does this exist in my current schedule?
No pot until weekends: Major fail on this one. I don't smoke during the day (hard and fast rule on that) and usually only once the sun sets. I try not to smoke to excess or if I'm feeling 'off'. I know my limits and don't overindulge, but I feel like a 'bum' if I'm getting stoned after doing very little of substance during the day. I like to work, I like to have a schedule to go by - without that structure, it feels weird.
Disclaimers: (Diagnosed) OCD (medicated with a strong SSRI, not 'Effexor', medicated with a strong Benzodiazepine on a 'as needed' basis, everything else is circulatory/muscle related.
My parents say they are proud of me because I had numerous birth complications, almost had to be taught sign language, (was on the verge of) being diagnosed with Cereal Palsy. learning disabilities, among other afflictions, and yet I've managed to live on my own with two cats, hold a job with a Fortune 500 company, etc. I know parents are there to encourage you, but I hope they're not 'reaching' for positive elements.
I spend a lot of time distracting myself with media - talk radio shows, mindless video games (Viscera cleanup detail - janitor style game), TV shows I've seen incessantly and consider a form of 'comfort food', etc. I have a nice pair of wireless headphones than sync to my TV/Computer, so I'm always surrounded by sound to some extent. I detest silence.
I guess what I'm asking is....I don't really know. Maybe I need more activities during the day than sitting in front of the computer? Any and all suggestions are welcome, thanks.
Additional Disclaimer: Am not at a risk or further risk of harming myself or others.

2022.01.21 17:24 Arious2015 Cost of living raise what’s that?

Director decided that he was going to dictate the yearly raise for each person in the department. (Approx 150 ppl)
Everyone gets 1% this year across the board! Company made 5 billion (yes billion) in profit last year… but hey the occasional email of gratitude and pizza party really makes up for it.
Keep up the hard work!

2022.01.21 17:24 No_Elk5626 Still confused if it was a breakup when we never dated

So I matched with this guy last year around April and we have been seeing each other since. The best part was that I ended moving to a place closer to him so me and my roommate started hanging out with him and his roommate almost everyday and now we have a very close friendship bond. We had always established that it was a casual relationship and that this was the most it can ever get.
But with all the continuous meetups and the intimacy, we started having feelings for each other. Even if we wanted each other, he was reluctant to establish it as a relationship as he is of a different religion and his family would be upset if we was to marry me.
Today, he is leaving to his hometown for a while and we decided to call it off for good to not affect our friendship. But I do not know if I can be friends right away but the city feels weird without hanging out with them and I know I can't cut that off either
On top of all this, I had an abortion and it got me so close to him during the procedure that I feel like I cannot be with someone else

2022.01.21 17:24 anwserman Moving to Hartford, need recommendations

I’m moving to the Hartford region this summer and am looking for a 1-bedroom apartment or studio with shared parking. What areas do you recommend? My office is located downtown but don’t mind a reasonable commute. Personally heard that West Hartford is pretty good but haven’t explored the region much in-person.
My range is around $1250/month and can be flexible based on amenities.

2022.01.21 17:24 Aknav12 I don’t understand why equity law is its own thing

Taking my first business law class so bear with me.
Equity law is concerned with fairness and justice and is administered in special courts.
Isn’t fairness and justice literally the point of all laws and courts though? Why is it it’s own special thing? How is it different than the Supreme Court establishing just common law?

2022.01.21 17:24 BryPie1 Pilot bearing install

I recently had my flywheel resurfaced and put a new pilot bearing in by tapping it in with a socket. I did not have the socket on straight and made an indent in the surface between the inner and outer ring of the pilot bearing. It still turns smoothly and quietly but I am wondering if there is grease inside the bearing that will leak out now or if this bearing is going to go bad soon because I hit the bearing wrong.
