    Good luck to you, sir, and thank you for your service.

    One can find many martinets in the workplace but those in government are the worse. They are protected by levels upon levels of people, often relatives of someone who works for someone or a major donor--and on it goes. You will need a good lawyer and some help from the feds to get any satisfaction.

    There will be lots of people who will say you should just find another job. It doesn't seem as though you are a loser; rather, you've been surrounded by them and they have closed ranks. Using SHARE to justify their actions would only make sense if SHARE worked; a simple request from Do-IT for their records showing how many times that system is down should show how many inaccuracies are possible. Also, an audit of records would show that the higher up the ranks one looks, the less likely a person is to charge his or her time at all, regardless of what category to which it should have been charged.

    Fight.on. And Merry Christmas!

    In addition to the articles written by the New Mexican, I have provided all of the memos, documentation and some evidence to the entire New Mexico Legislative body to ensure that they are well informed regarding the details of these matters.

    Nonsense. There is a state statute that will protect former and returning service members. What a shame the petty issues that state managers chose to waste resources on.
