No it hasn't. You have become an alcoholic and developed an eating disorder while working in advertising.

We are lacking resources in every department across Design, BAs, Marketing and that’s largely the cause.

So as much as I embrace the tenets of socialism, I have to admit: I'm not a part of a union. I don't know of any programmer's union and I don't know where to start if I want to organize in my own company.

If anyone has any pointers, I'd love some guidance. Also guidance in convincing my coworkers to organize, which might be a hard sell because most of us are pretty happy with our working conditions and pay as far as I can tell.

Anyone here know the Microsoft H1B transfer timelines.. submitted all my docs and questionnaire on 01/10 and they said they are preparing for filing on 01/14. I also sent them my last 3 pay slips on 01/14.... any idea how long it takes to file the petition?
