Not fishing related, can some body tell me
Can some body explain something to me, my eldest was a FIFO worker until today when he was told that he was being "demobilized" and that he was no longer required.
Now I thought that as his services (and it's not only him about 20 others) were finished with you were made "redundant", your part of the job has finished.
Demobilized is a term used for military services, such as the wars finished troops you are released from service etc.
Can anyone tell me what this means in the commercial construction world, have the commercial sector taken up the word demobilized instead of redundant or does it mean something else with terminating workers. He is not upset as the end of the job was foreseeable and on construction that's the nature of the work. It's just the use of this word he hasn't come across before when being laid off.
Thanks to anyone that can explain the difference to me.
