When a drum of LANL waste went pop,
then everything at WIPP must stop.

It sure will be nice to see it re-start,
and move past what was called a fart.

But now we hear that the roof is falling,
this news is simply appalling!

Taxpayers spending more and more money,
no one should find this funny.

I think it's called "doggerel." Yay for you. Are you happy now?

For your consideration: "What is a young person considering a career related to the nuclear industries (weapons or energy) to do?"

Outside the industry, many employers grimace when reading the words "nuclear energy" or "radiation" anywhere in a resume. Eyebrows may perk up, but more often they furrow.

After public and political figures have tar-and-feathered facilities like Y12, Rocky Flats, Fukushima, WIPP, etc. who wants to be associated with anything having to do with nuclear science and engineering?

Sure, many old timers have/are leaving vacancies in well-paid positions for up-and-comers, but it seems like a one way trip. The general attitude out in the real world is that anything touching nuclear materials is hounded by impotence and incompetence. What future does such a position have when our politicians increasingly seek to demonize or apologize for all things nuclear?

At what point does a reference from LLNL, SNL, INL, or their ilk (active or defunct) become a dark smudge on a person's record? When does taking a job offer at a nuclear lab mean a life sentence relegated to obscurity and obsolescence?

How come all the people I know who left the labs found very nice jobs?

No has ever heard of Y12, Rocky Flats, or WIPP. So to answer your questions, lots of people apparently.

There is no general attitude, no increasing demonetization. Increasing delusion on your part, yes that is true.

"At what point does a reference from LLNL, SNL, INL, or their ilk (active or defunct) become a dark smudge on a person's record? "

At no point.

I think your personal situation my be, how should we say this politely...clouding your view of the world. Perhaps it goes something like this: you got fired from LANL, LLNL or SNL due to very poor performance. You of course did not see it that was since you a brilliant genius who is not appreciated. You tried to get a job elsewhere but because you have such a poor record and no sane person will vouch for you, finding employment has been very difficult. This is in direct conflict with you being a genius so what is the reason no one wants you anywhere near their workplace? It must be because having worked at one of the labs is "dark smudge on your person". Now their is that little problem with the many hundreds of people who leave the labs every year for very nice jobs at Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Universities, other non NNSA labs, startups, industry and Wallstreet as technical and mathematical skills are in great demand. So how does one get around this? Well go back to square one and ask yourself if maybe, just maybe the issue is with you and not the labs or the people that work at the labs. Here is a big one that might give you some insight into yourself, just ask yourself just one very simple questions: do you think this world owes you something? I will not give you the answer to this question as it is journey you will need to take on your own. Good luck.

I would guess they are a disgruntled ex employee. Just saying.
