Ready To Join Stambush!
Giving Staffing a Good Name

Brother Fred Dislocates Shoulder!
Our Brother Fred “The Man” Salazar fell down and went boom on his last snowboarding run this past Monday (the 19th). Well, he admits to falling more than that, but what makes this fall so noteworthy is that Fred dislocated his left shoulder. Granted, the medical people at the ski resort popped it back in, but he still has very limited use of his left arm.
On behalf of all of us to all of us, I would like to wish everybody happy holidays. Our Stambush Staffing family continues to receive high praise from the decision makers (directors) around town. We know this for a fact, because Tricia and Fred recently visited with a lot of our customers while dropping off gifts, and they heard how great we were everywhere they went, how so many Directors want to use Stambush first because we have the best people. It really is that simple. So, thank you. Thank you for being so great, and thank you for being so reliable. You are truly a fantastic group of people, and I am very honored to be associated with you.
For the upcoming year, I look forward to our Stambush Family taking over more and more of the staffing jobs in town. The bigger we are, the more work there will be and more good we will do (provided we keep our quality). Yes, we will make some mistakes. None of us are perfect, and we have never claimed to be perfect. Still, it is well known that Stambush is the best agency in town, and we should continue to recruit and hire other good and reliable professionals who want to work in temporary staffing. Those people belong with us, and they should not be helping the image of an agency that hires inexperienced new graduates and/or does not competency test applicants.
Call Your Congressmen to Stop the Medicare Rate Reduction
There is a 27.1% rate reduction to providers from Medicare scheduled to go into effect January 1, and our Congress seems to be on the verge of letting it happen. So please call your congressman. You don’t need to call the President or your Senators, it is your Congressional representative you need to call.
Here's how my experience went:
I called the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and asked for my representative. Don't worry if you don't know who that is, as they can tell by your zip code. When I got through to Mr. Olson’s office, I asked to talk to the person who is handling the issue of possible Medicare rate reductions to providers. I then told Brandon, the person I spoke to, that I wanted the rate reduction stopped now, and he informed me there is wide bipartisan support to not allow the rate reduction to go into effect. He said the problem is that the rate reduction is tied to other sticky points. I said I would like to see those other sticky points cut out for now in order to stop the looming rate reduction right now. He said he agreed and they were working on it.
This whole call took about 4 minutes. Please don’t delay, and pass this on to as many people as you know.
