Thanks for posting – I like the term – indeed, as a small-ish contractor employee, I am (not to be too unhumble) plugging away dutifully in my job for the government – and knowing that my job will get cut first when the Shuttle program ends, and knowing that I am a “single point of failure” I stay and plug away at my job…. even though I sometimes feel like the “ugly step-child” as a contractor, and even though greener pastures may beckon. I stay, and plug away….. Thankfully my company allows wonderful flexibility and telecommuting options – so I can maximize my home life while remaining employed as long as the contract lasts….. 🙂 Plus, I feel good serving a vital function and knowing that I do it well…. for all of America!! 🙂
