Response to Forestry related community YES....

Im not sure how much you understand the forest industry, 1st, you dont take a day off, you basically have 100 days a year to work. My men average about $425.00 dollars a day in wages. 1 day off to take in a game? I think not. Frankly if I knew a guy took a day off for a game, I would fire him.

2nd, 10 years ago, 5 years ago, the forest industry was in a huge slump, the unemployment rate was pushing 18%, WHL hockey is not expensive, people had time. Today the rate is closer to 5% and people dont have time, it is a very dramatic change.

I know this, most of my buddies from my section when I had tickets are also in forestry related jobs, and I still see and talk to many, and almost none of them have tickets. When I ask the, their responce, I just dont have time.
