Yepper, I second Passinby's thoughts. Look around you, things could be a whole helluva lot worse. Be thankful that you have a job to go to.

Derek I am not down playinig your situation because it is a pain to move when you have settled in BUT..like timber recommended, keep your home if you think you will be moving back and can afford to. If you have a choice I would not move to Cinncinati given the other choices, due to cost of living and other factors.

Hopefully you will keep your job and all your benefits until you decide when to retire. I know a lot of people who are unemployed and many have been since 2008. There are those in many industries who may lose their homes, have run out of unemployment insurance and have no medical benefits. I pray you never end up in that position.

It looks grim at this time but try to look at the pluses even if you have to squint and really reach out there to find some.

Life isn't fair and it ain't for sissies, Boudreaux.

There are a whole lot of people who are loosing/have lost their homes/families and who do not have a job to go to or a union to protect them.

BTW, apparently the number of one's posts does not signal intelligence and/or compassion.

I have both I just choose to use them wisely! That is why I never go into a forum and Belittle somebody I don't know! And trust me I know how fair life is!

Tennessee's good

I've lived in Oak Ridge & now I'm retired and live in Jasper (just west of Chattanooga). The cost of living is low, lots of places to shoot, hunt & fish. No state income tax either. I lived in Kentucky for 17 years too. Kentucky's ok too, but I think it costs more to live there.

Better than what happened to my father. He worked for the railroad in the late 60's. Broke his ankle in a job related accident and they fired him for not being able to perform his duties because of medical problems, THAT HE GOT WORKING ON THE RAILROAD. That is like punching someone then suing them for breaking your hand.

Either way, picking up and relocating is difficult. But you have a job and some security.

here is the deal.everytime we get a new superintendant they pull this out and lay it on his desk. all of them have looked it over and said it will not work. the reason is it will not work at all. now this new guy comes in and wants to put a feather in his cap and says we'll make it work(after 30 years of everybody knowing it won't work).

they have looked it over time and time again. it just won't work, but this guy says he's ganna make it work. after they do this to our district there isn't a district safe on any railroad from being torn to pieces and the workers relocated.

we have each union standing together(and i'm not a fan of any unions at all. they live off the work that we do). if they don't keep this from happening i will have been right when i told our co-workers that these unions only care about themselves and not the workers. everytime the company comes to them with something they say ok. we'll do it. we have been taking it on the chin for so many years it makes me sick.

we have no security right now. we just have till this mess striaghtens out or we have to move. if we have to move it is going to cost everyplace they make us go half thier work force. yep half the people there will be on the streets without a job. it will cost roughly half our workers thier jobs, just to find out this won't work.

there is more to it than the guys making remarks understand. we're looking at around 200-300 people total between the 5 places without jobs and on the streets. because of something that everybody knows won't work but this nut seems to think he can make it work.
