Nope, not a union. I think we have this system in place to at least appear that things are fair.
Maybe that's why nobody is telling me anything is so that by the time I realize what the deal is it would be too late (the position would be filled) for a grievance to be worth anything.
About moving to a bigger city - I would love to move home to Seattle, but my wife won't move out there. I do live near a very large city so I suppose I should start looking there - I just dread the commute.
About becoming a police officer - no way, at least not here. All we deal with every day are the same rednecks again and again. I just couldn't stand that. And for the added stress and drama, the pay just isn't worth it! I was shocked how little these guys make.
I will definitely say something to someone. I'd like to speak with the chief and ask him what I could do to be considered the next time. I'd also like to tape the conversation
Thanks for the input, guys!
