Is this exempt from their policy of working employees only 29Hrs a week so they don't have to pay health bennies?

Did I hear that you're trading one desert oasis tourist destination for another?

Correctomundo, this oasis has a "slightly" different way of life than the other one at +4Z. Needless to say I am glad to be back! The other place got real stale after awhile.

I feel real comfortable with my new employer and location. Seems a good fit for me. However I do not look forward to paying taxes, rent, etc. again.

Best wishes, Walt!

Things are good here. If you are going to the place that I think you are going to, say hi to you know who and to S.S. I worked with this person at EZ. They are good people.

Welcome back to 'merika by the way.

I'm assuming you could openly talk about said employer in public, too?
Absolutely, Allegiant Air. Creative business model but 36 consecutive profitable financial quarters and avg. 91% LF means something is going right. Fun and comfortable place. Thanks for asking!

Caesar will always get his but not from any UAE Dirhams I made in 2011, that's all mine!

I'll admit the blog has slid down the priority list lately due to my recent frivolous efforts of securing gainful employment and a roof over my head.

I intend on writing a few posts about the UAE underbelly now that I am hopefully in a place where blogs are not monitored and punished for content.

Over there, I had to throttle myself or risk a loud knock on the door at 3AM by a few guys in desert camo uniforms with drawn Berreta 9MM handguns, pockets full of zip-ties, Korans and Sharia law Cliff Notes.

My current blog will wind down but I will keep it active for those curious about working in the Middle East. I plan to start a new one about LVNV, the US, and the airline biz in general.

Stay tuned!

Having the parent company in bankruptcy probably doesn't help much.
