It's hard to envision someone clueless enough to assume Amtrak was a rock solid career choice also being fazed by rumors that it could be defunded in the next budget debate. Nearly every nonessential job is at risk right now but I don't see every employee shrugging their shoulders or giving me the stink eye just because they don't know what might happen tomorrow. If anything most seem thankful to have a job in an era of severe adversity and I feel the same way.Imagine you work for Amtrak. Positions are being cut left and right. There is a high likelihood the long-distance network will not be here a year from now, and if it is there will be much fewer positions to fill. How positive would your employee attitude be?
