My July 4 holiday will begin in a little more than 2 hours - my employer is in the automotive manufacturing business and the infamous "shutdown" is nearly upon us.

Sorry, I haven't heard about a "shutdown". Is this something in the news lately or a long-time yearly thing?

Everyone else: Did everyone (in the US at least) start their July 4 weekend early? Sheesh...
Nothing in here since ~5:30am and that from someone I think is on the other side of the Atlantic...


We were just laughing about that as we were coming back from lunch. Literally half of our parking lot is empty. We always expect the people with doors to be gone on Friday afternoons but it seems that half of the place is gone today.

This is standard practice in the US - the week of July 4 and the week of Christmas are typically no production.

True enough. I expected next week to be dismally empty but it seems like it started on Wednesday of this week already. Oh well, not like I don't have plenty to do.

Where I work, we're going to get double-whammied next week I think...

People have taken next week off, plus (being govm't) we've got people starting their mandatory furloughs because of sequestration...

Except those of us who aren't govm't...
We still work 5 days a week...

In the automotive industry you mean?

This is my first year in the automotive industry. I must say that for the most part, I don't like being forced to take my vacation at specfic times...except for when those specific times arrive and I don't have to work!

I did have one optional week of vacation time that I used already - so really not a bad deal at all. The "Christmas Week" shutdown will really be longer than a week - Dec 21 through Jan 1. It's a welcome break that I have never had in other industries.

At IND wait for my flight.

Any way, thanks for the well wishes and hopefully I will be back in the next few days.
