It’s Employee Appreciation Day: Thank the Techs Who Work Through Anything

The U.S. Postal Service’s unofficial motto — “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds” — was called into question during the polar vortex when the agency halted mail service in some areas because of extreme temperatures.

You know who didn’t stop? Field service technicians. They were still out there, fixing furnaces, power lines, oil pipelines and other critical equipment.

When fires destroy and hurricanes dump water over entire cities, who is still working? Yep, field service techs.

They can’t call it quits when it’s too cold or their area is flooded — and they deserve our thanks.

I got a chuckle when I read about the Postal Services (USPS) stopping delivery during the polar vortex because they didn’t do it for the employees but because the employees in mass refused to go out in that weather.
This article does emphasize a key point—to be appreciative of service rendered even though some people consider services like this a “given “ invisible service. I am glad at least this area of employment by labor laws does guarantee proper payment regarding overtime.
