Sunny, hot and humid! This was the weather forecast today from our local station.
If I were on vacation, I may love this news.
I am not on vacation so I am dreading going into work today. I will explain. I work at a local manufacturing company and we are constantly standing all day. I love my job and what I do, we make small medical equipment. The items we produce are not electrical so there is no need to have a climate controlled area as there is with other devices. We do have small window air conditioners in the break room and offices. This keeps the bosses comfortable but not the rest of the workers. We look forward to our breaks just to get some relief. We recently had a team meeting to discuss our working environment and goals. Management asked what they could do to improve our overall feeling about the job. The general consensus was we would be more productive and enjoy our jobs more if we were in a climate controlled environment. Business is up and financially the company is doing great. Management has agreed to look into the possibility of an HVAC system that would control the entire space. I hope that it works out. In the meantime, I am not looking forward to spending my day today sweating and feeling downright uncomfortable. I can only do my job to the best of my ability. My co-workers and I will just have to wait for the decision to be made and hope for the best.
