Manufacturing is in a maintenance crisis. Not enough workers, not enough experience, long lead times for parts, poor monitoring. Shit is breaking down everywhere.

We all throw a ton of hate at boomers here, but the truth is that they are the only ones keeping shit running. Maybe they are partly to blame for not making room and now it’s too late.

Viewer01 40 points ago +43 / -3

Succession planning is real. The other half of this is diversity hires.

30 years ago you hired a family man who stayed in the plant for 20 years or more and was a living repository of issues and work arounds.

Now companies shift engineers around every 3 years because they hire so many shit ones that it’s a must to mitigate the amount of damage they can do. They get a good one and burn them out getting stuff pushed through.

The family man was working 50-60 hour weeks to ensure his family, but millennials are pulling a soft 40 and heading out to happy hour every afternoon to get drunk. Even worse the colleges have cut standards so badly that barely literate retards are getting engineering degrees.

I predicted we would start seeing an uptick in plant issues years ago and I got out of plant life and ride a desk. Watched a diversity hire nearly nuke two chemical plants and leadership shrugged and call it a training issue. Which was hilarious because once the shift ended straight white males figured it out within 20 minutes, whereas she let the shit go on for 8 hours.

27
TrumpoWon2020 27 points ago +27 / -0

You say 50-60 hours a week should be normal and also say good engineers burn out. Pick one. 50-60 hours isn't normal outside of shutdowns or shit hitting the fan. Maintenance normally works a floating average of 40 hour weeks based on whatever the maintenance schedule is at a certain plant. I've seen many variations but they aren't working 50+ hour weeks as standard practice. Neither is production. Why would engineers need to work insane hours when no one else does? You can't raise a family if you're working 60 hour weeks. You'd never see your kids and every weekend is spent recovering from the insane hours you just worked and by the time you're caught up on sleep it's right back to your shitty 60 hour a week job.

ihatedemocrats 12 points ago +16 / -4

Extended shutdowns and forced vaccinations pushed a lot of the experienced people into retirement. Mix in diversity hires and green hands and there will be more accidents. Pair that with the backlogs in almost every industry and instead of needed parts getting replaced, you’ve got people fixing stuff with bubblegum and ductape.

Combine all of this and it’s absolutely ripe for disaster. Not saying this is all organic by any means, but I can see how unprecedented factors are contributing to the amount of fires and accidents.

As far as the 40 hour workers…. This is something I’ve noticed when I’m working a round of hiring. Everyone seems weak, lazy, entitled, inexperienced and unreliable.

I remember working 14-18 hour days for years, often with months on end without a day off. I couldn’t even get the grease and dirt out of my skin before my next shift. I’m working a desk job now and I look back at those days with some fondness that I can’t explain.

With my current job, I’ll work through most of those “sick” days and rarely take time off. I almost dread going on vacation because I know that whoever covers for me will do shit work and I’ll have to clean up the mess when I’m back.

I don’t understand people who are satisfied sitting at home all day doing nothing. If I’m not working or building something, I get mopey and it drives me insane.

I don't think a person is lazy for not working themselves to death. I personally work 50-60 work weeks and i despise it. i can never get any of my personal stuff done. i dont have a wife or kids and doing more then crashing. why should i work these hours and how many others our out there like me?

Working harder is in sports to "get ahead" in the "rat race" - okay for corporate America but more people are checking out of that loop. I'm backing out slowly, have not tried for further promotions that force too much travel and office politics, high visibility projects and insane deadlines, very done with it. I've done enough of that junk and just want to enjoy my family.

0815 5 points ago +5 / -0

You just don't have any hobbies. I could be home all day and tinker with my hobby stuff instead of being at the office and planning infrastructure. 4 years ago they hired another younger engineer to get me off these 50+ hour work weeks and now both of us have these 50+ hours.... Crazy busy is an understatement and we do 40% more work with about 60% of the staff in comparison to 15 years ago.

Now companies shift engineers around every 3 years because they hire so many shit ones

Part of this is that the "multi-decade job" is mostly a thing of the past. If you want to move up, or move sideways for more money, you're probably just going somewhere else. There's much more focus now on hiring external than promoting and retaining internal.

9
Nibba 9 points ago +9 / -0

They absolutely hire internally before externally, but what they fail to do is give an actual raise. They will find the biggest schmuck before looking externally. They’ll throw you a 10% raise to move up and act like they are doing you a favor. Then they will just not rehire and run lean until their people burn out and the cycle repeats. Rinse and repeat. Tenure approaches 1-3 yrs where it used to be 15. I had a discussion about exactly that with my previous director. He asked me what I would have done if I were in his position. I said I would have worked on the problem 5 yrs ago when I was warned of the incoming labor shortage. But the suits above him are all about the short term. Unsurprisingly that company lost every single customer in a two state range that I am aware of because of their short sightedness.

10
80960KA 10 points ago +10 / -0

I think this depends on the field. In IT they'll write ridiculous reqs...so that when they "can't find" someone internal or even domestic, they can use it as justification to bring in a cheaper Chink or Pajeet.

PapaPepe 3 points ago +3 / -0

You have to move every 2-3 years to keep a salary that can even keep up with inflation much less actual raises. Joe Boomer that's been working for the company for 20 years, is probably making as much if not less as Billy Millenial that just got hired.

3
Viewer01 3 points ago +3 / -0

True for Millennials. Boomers though had the leverage to get decent raises, as they weren't in the habit of writing anything down. Thus businesses had to pay through the nose to keep experience.

Now? They can hire someone from the Carolinas to move to Oregon with the same experience to replace that boomer. Hell, even go to India.

The churn is real though. I've kept my same role, while moving up experience wise, and others who hired in on the same day as me have gotten further simply by job hopping. Meanwhile their skills and expertise are lesser, but on paper they've held a wider array of jobs.

Yeah, I used to believe in working hard and busting my ass for my employer, but now I feel the opposite and see your point. Why would I slave away, putting in extra effort for a company that hates me as a white male Christian? The only people who climb the ladder these days are woke, faggot apologists who will toe the party line. That's why I'd prefer to work for a small or mid-sized based company where I would work hard.

dr_gonzo 3 points ago +6 / -3

So in this imaginary example you're blaming the dastardly boomer for "holding on" too long, which actually means he kept working instead of retiring, and that this held back the millennial? Apparently he should have planned his retirement with the millennial's best interests in mind?

In this imaginary example, isn't the millennial a tad entitled? I mean, if the company thought it was in their best interest to get rid of the boomer, they could have done so. Therefore if boomer stays, the company is better served as is the boomer, but it's a bad thing because the millennials feels entitled to boomer's job?

4
GainesvilleFlorida 4 points ago +4 / -0

I have no hate for boomers, millennials, or Gen Z. There are people from each generation that I love intimately.

I think the scenario you mentioned assumes the “boomer” doesn’t hold a decision-making role and/or didn’t contribute to a work culture where that may be less than healthy.

I’ve seen locally owned shops close down because the boomer parents didn’t hand it off 15 years ago. And the adult child moved on to something else after having served the parents for nearly 20 years!. Super sad to have a locally owned store/mechanic/shop close down

-2

Yes to all your rhetorical questions. But naturally with you being a Boomer the concept of you passing the torch without complication is a entirely foreign concept to you.

10MeV 2 points ago +2 / -0

I'm a boomer. I finished out my career as a "Chief Engineer" running a large multi-million dollar lab operation for an automotive supplier. the two site managers under me, at two different sites, were millennials. I worked hard the last few years before retiring to make sure the job descriptions were clear, the advancement path was clear, and the right people were in the right places to manage and promote people within the company after I left.

When I retired, the system was set up for the millennials and the rest behind me to successfully run the operation. There are jackass boomers, but not all of us are. That's a broad brush, fren.

MasklessMarvel 5 points ago +7 / -2

if you can't blame the Jews, blame the boomers

you have hit on the real problem though

supplies and labor are short, costs are up and there is a push to increase production

while these incidents are not uncommon, the companies are cutting corners which is making them more frequent

dogcatfud 4 points ago +4 / -0

Not enough workers: at least part of this can be attributed to woke culture influencing young people to attend college for useless topics like gender studies. The left thinks everyone should go to college... at everyone's expense.

We need more competent and motivated tradespeople to maintain the infrastructure of this country, and fewer freakshows designing Gatorade ads with nonwhite obese land whales doing yoga.

There could be a basic problem of enough people too. Until more boomers die off we are faced with high demand by boomer retirees but fewer replacements. Think of it as a prelude to the problem of decling birth rates. Things don't necessarily scale down smoothly.

It's happening across Russia too. After what they went through with the Soviet Union it makes sense they'd set up a contingency plan in the event Russia turns on them again. This is probably those spies being activated. Here they just have to take a plane to another state, no need to infiltrate another country's state. Too bad the south doesn't secede. It would probably slow down the NWO and defend natural gas assets.
