Opinion poll time: if your workplace pays for a parking spot in a nearby parking garage so you can park your car at work, and then relocates their office to another building where the nearest, cheapest parking pass costs $75 per month, should they be obligated to cover the cost of your parking? Or at least, up to the equivalent of the cost of your old parking pass? Asking for my fiancee.

Personally, I see it as equivalent to a $900 annual pay cut.

Obligated depends on the terms for hire. If the parking permit was part of the hire agreement, then sure. Otherwise, I'd consider it pretty lucky that they paid for a parking spot at all before.

^ That.  It would have to be in a contract somewhere that she's entitled to a paid parking spot.

 

Today at work I discovered why a former peer was let go.  (Well, I knew why, but recent events further justifiy it.)  Rather than take time to automate certain very important processes, he preferred to do everything manually, presumably to make him look important.  Job security for me I guess now that I've exposed it and fixed it  :rolleyes:

I've got the reverse problem here. There's a guy on a shift that LOVES automating every possible aspect of his job. While I appreciate the effort, it's often wrong/inaccurate, and only marginally more efficient than if he'd done it manually (or at least manually checked it). Same problems every day, which aren't anything big, but are completely avoidable. I know he does it because he's into programming and not... well, THIS, but I've had to shoot down some of his more ambitious ideas because it would far, far, far more complicated to not do it that way.
