Default Exciting day here at CMS Headquarters! (aka Consumers Energy)

We had crazy protestors here at work today. Something about "Turn off the heat...lose your seat!" No clue what that meant but I am assuming it had to do with turning off the heat for people who don't pay their heat bills. They were actually kind of scary and a bit on the beligerent side. Like what the heck are we, the regular type employees, going to do about it. My heat bill was just as high as theirs, probably higher since I don't qualify for any "assistance!"

They came right into our building, pushed passed the top notch security staff we have here and blocked the employees from getting out of the secured area to our atrium.

Our office shares a parking structure with the local police and it still took them at least 15 minutes to get here! Protest all you want, but not in the building!

There were news cameras here but not sure what stations...

"Turn off the heat...lose your seat!"

Interesting.... WOW, coming into the building should be a violation.

Should read, "Turn off the heat, freeze your seat!":miff:

Yeah, come to find out the chant was supposedly directed at our Chairman...David Joos...about losing his board of directors seat. They even had signs saying "Where's David Joos?" I went down later and one of the cafeteria folks told me David Joos walked right by the protestors to buy a salad and they didn't even know it was him...

Is this because consumers is finally cutting off gas to people who don't pay their bills?

Good. I'm sick of paying for them

Way to go consumers!

I hadn't heard they had changed any policy on shutting off gas to those who don't pay...not our fault gas is expensive! They pay what the company pays for it!
