    maybe. I’ve been dealing with the worst people in the world for 13 years, maybe I’ll see what the hype is all about. My children have been strongly discouraged to pursue a career in law enforcement with the shit I’ve dealt with.

    I was a Correctional Officer for about 9 years. Been working with an ATF Task Force for the last 4 years.

    You have know idea how many terrible people there are in this world. Such a shitty way to look at the world, but unfortunately, things are changing.....for the worse. Ive been surrounded by the worst the world has to offer for the last 13 years.

    I cringe for my 2 children. 7 years cant come fast enough.

    I have known several corrections officers. No, I have never been incarcerated. Of my friends and family, that worked as corrections officers, half of them quit before retirement. It is a very tough job.

    I work for the City and have a super good pension but likely won't be able to retire till I am 60.... Another 29 years to go lol. Also I am very lucky as my dad worked in a Steel plant his entire life and made ridiculous amounts of money. He helps me and my spouse out quite a bit and I think when he passes (hopefully not any time soon) he will leave me a pretty decent chunk of money. But yes it's a scary thought. Right now with my spouse on leave with our child and I make about 45,000 a year we are definitely struggling to get by. Life isn't easy with how expensive things are now days.

    The thing with public work is that you get to retire more comfortably than you lived. Most pensions take the average of the final few years of service and that's what you get. So while you are getting abused for low pay early on, you don't have to save for retirement. Most people in the private sector are the exact opposite. You retire poorer than you lived.
    The rebuild is complete.
