I know this may sound selfish but I hope sequestration does what the fear mongers foretell .Working in a meat packing plant 60-70 hours a week is a tuff haul.My hands ache like a little old woman's,my legs are like spaghetti and I don't even want to talk about my back which was broken on a parachuting  accident in the army.What sequestration means to me and many of my fellow workers is a end to mandatory over time. I can't even begin to tell you how much this job would improve for me a hundreds of other workers if our work week was just 45 to 50 hours a week. It would give time for muscles to heal and a chance to catch our breaths and see our families.So I am keeping my fingers crossed ...Its just a shame that it would take that to give us work-able hours I have yet to understand the economic reasons that make all that over time beneficial maybe some of you with business experience can explain the economic benefit to the company instead of hiring more workers..Thanks again for reading
