Probably THE best post I’ve read in MONTHS about situation; sums up my feelings.
DCSA; pay attention to us The Loyal! Be professional! Individual and family livlihoods are at stake. We have given “our best” to our employers (direct and contract BIs) and to our country, and all we want is the COURTESY of a truthful, timely analysis/projection of your needs, for us. Please don’t keep us hanging out here hoping against hope that work will begin flowing. I know many of us are just “hired guns,” but we still need to plan as our incomes and careers and families depend upon good planning. DCSA, we await your messages of truth, even if they are not what we want to hear but MUST hear. Feel like I’m approaching last of 5 stages of grief scenario.
BTW, San Antonio, land of many bases. No work for 3 months (not counting RZs) for DCSA and 2 other contracts. Same for another local IC; third IC locally getting $50-$100/month for some reason.
Looking for FT, PT and contract work now. Left with no choice.
God bless all of you facing same Purgatory. This lack of communication is a CLASSIC public relations case of how NOT to communicate during a crisis, which this is for independents in particular.
