Episode 39: 3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Working Conditions
The path to improving your current working conditions and your career does not depend on your employer or employees. It depends on YOU.
Over the past few episodes of “Machine Shop Talk”, the topic of the conversations have been working conditions in machine shops and the metalworking industry. We talked about wages and training, and what is making the trade less attractive to current and future machinists. In this episode, Ian Sandusky gets into some practical suggestions that both employers and employees can and should put into effect in order to make machine shops a better workplace for all of us.
From openly discussing wages and benefits with coworkers to being aware of what other shops are doing and offering, these recommendations will make your job better, your shop more competitive and the trade more attractive.
