    We are the most fortunate of all labor, being skilled.
    Instead of mere production work, being just the means to support one self for pay; we collect knowledge that can't be purchased. Our value to self and society increases every minute.
    If you are an employee, owner gets deal of the century.

    Make sure he knows it, or thump an accountant on the way out.
    That's why tool boxes have wheels.
    Sincerely,
    Toolmaker51

    Too right! I've been on both sides of the equation and I like to think that I have always treated employees with the respect they deserve, while still demanding they perform to their ability....now the accountants....I reckon there's 2 broad categories, 1) the good guys that actually help you with your or the company's finances and 2) the needle nosed bean counters trying to weedle their way up the ladder, saving pennies to impress the boss....cheers

    I've said more times than wishing to count. Accountants work [theoretically] to minimize costs. More often they've found ways to re-characterize expenses, negating worth for profit. One can create the other, yet not the other way around.
    That always raises their eyebrows, contrary to what professors laid on.
    I've asked them, "when this place goes under, whose work, even remnants, attract competing bidders?"

    Too true: as a grave digger, I had time to spend when funerals were taking place. In those years most everyone passed by the age of 40 & so so many kids.

    My dad was retrenched 6 months before retirement. There were 5 workers doing the earning while about 40 were still in admin+ wonder why they went bankrupt!

    Oh fear not, what with the anti-vax idiocy we'll be back up to the 'so so many kids' level in no time....

    Their labor built the area I live in. Had it not been for the military and GI Bill I would have ended up in their place.
