    Great Quarter for WHC

    Buffetts:

    I worked for 32 years with the
    Dept. of Corrections, retired and went to work for WHC
    for 9 years and retired.

    The nation wide
    company policy is that they give their employees 9 paid
    holidays a year. Pay raises are determined with the COLA
    the states they contract with are willing to give.
    Generally, the states are very generious when giving raises
    to their corrections employees but not so when they
    deal with the private sectors.

    In Calif. the
    DOC lied to the private sector for a number of years
    by saying there was not enough money in the budget
    to grant COLA adjustments to the contracts they had
    with the private companys. They were taken to court on
    the matter and lost big time. The courts said they
    did not bargin in good faith and lied. Consequently,
    they had to pay millions in damages.

    From your
    writings I would surmise that you are an employee of some
    state's DOC assigned in some capacity to a facility
    operated by a private company. If that is the case then
    you, would be a union member and like all union
    members, are running scared of the possibility that the
    private sector will eventually take over the supervison
    and management of all inmates in your state because,
    as you know they do the job just as well but at a
    reduced cost. By the way, are you in Calif. If so, we may
    know a lot of folks in common.
