My husband just had his 40th anniversary with a "family owned" company. He got NOTHING, infact one of the bosses asked him how long he'd been with the company. He knew. My husband saw the boss's kids grow up. I was so embarassed for him, I know it hurt his feelings, but men don't show it like women do. I can't name any company or names, cause he wants to retire in a few years. I've tried to get him to quit, it's not worth the hassle, but he doesn't want to start a new job making less than he is, and that's what would happen . He just wants to retire, and enjoy life doing his hobbies. This company really stinks, used to be a good place, but not anymore. Glad to get that off my chest. We will move on and they better never call him for advice, after the way he was treated.
Thanks, a loving wife
