I'm a Shop Floor Employee
A Day in the Life…
I watch my cutting tool slice metal. A stream of blue liquid splashes away the chips. “Where is everyone?” I ask, glancing around. “It seems like it’s just us staying overtime.”
“They’re holding everyone in assembly on overtime too.” Rawlins stares at his computer. Red, green and amber lights blink in the background.
“Even though company policy says ‘no overtime.’” I feed another sheet into my machine.
“Jason‘ll bury the expense. We get this order shipped and we’re heroes.”
“Or maybe we keep our jobs.” I take a look around at the shop floor where I’ve worked for two years. If the new owners do a purge, we could both be history. What about my school loans? Rawlins and his wife have a new baby.
Two hours later I check my phone. It’s 11:15. We’re on the loading dock. The double doors of the truck close, the driver backs up and accelerates onto the dark highway.
I turn to Rawlins. “Congrats.”
“Don’t ask me how we did it.”
With fewer middle managers and a focus on working lean, greater responsibility falls on shopfloor employees
You’re good at what you do but do others know it? Job security is important and so is productivity. You manage your time well.
