Man, I hope being competent doesn't make me unemployed

Today, about half of the people on the project were rolled to a different, non-privilege project. They apparently were deemed not capable of making decisions on privilege or writing privilege log entries. They probably weren't, as most temps aren't. We do too much dummy priv on most projects -- temps are told that if they see a lawyer or the word "legal," priv it. So they do. Temps who actually understand privilege are more unusual, and on a privilege project, dummy priv folks are useless.

On the other hand, we have about two weeks left on this project. The folks who just got rolled to another project are being told four to six weeks. Will people who can't do priv be working after I am done? Could happen. There are no guarantees. There is a rollover opportunity now. There might not be when my part is done. It sucks, but that is the way it is. We will keep our fingers crossed.
