“Flower Moon” is Waing Gibbous @65.3%; Full Moon + Total Lunar Eclipse, visible on May 15.
I didn’t ask for a work schedule change. I thought about economics, not just money but social.
This is a period of confusing politics and social attitudes. It’s also a time of relative affluence for average Americans. Our wages, savings, and investments are up or holding steadily enough. The Americans who own homes are sitting on a profitable resale market.
I held off asking for a schedule change in these unusual times. Fewer people hunting for jobs are making it difficult to hire. Good employers are bending over backward to retain appreciated employees. My workplace needs a worker where it has placed me.
My decision has to do with fairness. I will hold off on requesting reduced hours and help management by continuing my current schedule and making a decent effort. If my hours remain too wearing, I will request a change.
These are odd times. Ahead is a future of cloudy economics and social attitudes. An individual’s current choices and decisions must consider what’s likely to work out best.
Dear Friends: This replay of cloudiness reflects less confidence in today’s leaders. Diana
