Cinderella The Contractor

Ever wonder how Cinderella felt inside while her step sisters were at the Ball?

In RISING OF THE TELECOM UNDERCLASS Parts ONE and TWO, I explored some issues that may be facing middle class, middle aged, layed off telecom workers like myself - too young and financially unprepared for retirement, and too old to be attractive to employers (younger workers cost less than older ones.) For those of us working as contractors or temps, treatement at the client’s establishment may be another emotionally and psychologically challenging issue.

Last month was Sprint’s Annual Picnic.  Employees went.  Contractors and temps like myself were made to stay and watch the shop while every one else celebrated. 

Still numbed from the PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF DOWNSIZING - this is an added blow to self esteem, reinforcing feelings of worthlessness - and drawing parallels between life as a contractor - and life as a doormat.

Now I know how Cinderella felt.
