One thing I can say that is pushing many to retire is companies going further and further left. It is getting out of control. I have spoken with several in my company that are sick of it and want out. The progressiveness and the change of a family company to a corporate company.

The over the top political correctness, all of it gets old, I cant recall what group gets celebrated this month.

The real world doesn't work like that. A business owner must have a return on investment for all the risk they have taken on. Most aren't capitalized where they "can adjust to the market". That means they would need to borrow more money to stay in business. Most are scraping by. Except for those like big tech or big box retail. We are going to see a lot of businesses fail due to many reasons. Small businesses are not competitive and they are the largest employers.

Why don't all these folks who have the attitude that business owners are cold hearted start their own business? I can tell you why, because they would rather work for someone else or live for free.
Because they don’t understand how businesses run. because they don’t understand simple economics. They want more for not doing much, Because they have big heads and think they’re worth more than they are worth. We will see more machines replacing these people. They love the government tete. Basically lots of people out of touch with reality

While I agree with some of this, not all ODOT employees are/can work at home. Some are doing partly home and partly in office while about 40% I would estimate, are still full time in the office now.
When in history have we seen a government shrink its forces?
I am doing QAQC for consultant plans now and I do not need to be in the main office to perform those duties. When I was doing scoping, I needed to be present in the office and in the field meetings more. The powers that be decided each EM can do their own scopes which is a mistake if you ask me because that is what we moved away from 22 years ago and we had better consistency with the Scoping branch, much better.
But I digress.
Consultants are doing more and more because we simply have more money for more projects than we did 20 or 30 years ago and our forces cant handle that load with our current FTEs.
But I could be wrong.
Nontheless, I can retire any day I wish so whatever happens, I will be fine.
Is there any hiring for experienced people where you are employed?
We had one CAD guy get recalled to Army active duty while we were working from home but they replaced him with the son of one of the owners. We also lost a CE and they hired two more to replace him. I don’t know if they need any CAD Techs but you can always call Brian S, he should know.

It’s now disability pride month. I kid you not. I watch discover channel a lot and I have to see the commercial about 50 times. They come up with some minority group to celebrate every month now. Why don’t we have a white history month? What about Indian pride month? We all know that won’t ever happen. I can’t even hardly stomach watching tv anymore. Even the family oriented channels push the leftist agenda hard. And they advertise adult shows on these channels. They have no business doing that. But it’s all on purpose to warp these young people. That and to normalize evil. Thankfully my son don’t watch much tv. But he still gets exposed to it because of “friends”. There is only so much I can do without being too controlling with him. Raising a teenager is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Besides living a Christian life.
