They  are going to pay the girl who worked in the lab with me more money to
do the job.   She had  asked for $2.00 an hour more and since she was with
the company in another capacity for 10 years prior to leaving 6 months
before I was hired, I think her old boss had something to do with this.
She's only 3 years younger than me and she hadn't worked with paraffin (she
was a Moh's tech) or IHC for more than 10 years before coming to work with
me.  I've already contacted an attorney, but I  understand this is the kind
of thing that's typical.  No negotiation, no discussion, just came back from
vacation and bam, you're out.
So much for private industry and job security.
