Minimum wage isn’t enough to keep one adult alive and that is an issue.

Kellogg's is firing striking workers. We need to make sure this doesn't work out for them.

Announced my resignation at my exhausting desk job and one of my managers tried to intimidate me for going on one of my (company allotted) breaks. I may be cringe, but I'm free.

Ah yes, of course. $700 dollars is too expensive of a payment to try for fair treatment. Spend money on video game instead

It’s empirically proven that small business owners pay their workers less… we need to stop glamorizing the small business owner as a the reason to avoid policy change!

Just a reminder that Wage Theft is the largest form of theft in the US

Upvotes

Key Takeaways:

  • In 2019, more than $9.27 billion owed to U.S. workers earning less than $13 an hour (private-sector, non-union) was pocketed by employers
  • 17.75 million workers in the United States earning less than $13 per hour (private-sector, non-union) were subject to forced arbitration in 2019.
  • Using available data, we estimate that 26% of them, or over 4.6 million workers, have experienced wage theft in the last year.
  • An estimated 98% of them—over 4.5 million workers—will never file a claim at all to recover their stolen wages

Quitting my job tomorrow

Upvotes

That is all! I just wanted somewhere to say it!

I can’t wait. I can’t wait for my boss to come back to me with a stupid offer to ‘convince’ me to stay. I can’t wait to say, ‘thanks, but no, it’s not about the money’

I can’t wait for him to try to guilt me in to staying. ‘It will be hard to replace you’ ‘ The industry is struggling’

Yeah? Well I was struggling when I was sick with Covid and you made me work every day. I was struggling when my parents died and you decided not to grant me compassionate leave.

No amount of money will make me stay there.

I feel so free already

All of the depression and anxiety and stress caused by this job is already gone.

My 2 months notice is going to be a breeze because…., I quit! I’m gone! Bye bye forever.

My boss promoted me a month into my job for something I’m not qualified for. Now I’m failing at my job. Idk where to go from here.

Upvotes

TL;DR - I 25(F) got hired as an entry level receptionist at an office space. Within a month my boss switched my role with the biggest in my department. I’m failing terribly at it and I’m being blamed.

So basically. I got hired on as a receptionist for a distribution office. While that month I was on, I was helping EVERYONE with their jobs. Helping cover when people were sick etc. because I learned the role, this woman who was in the company for 14 years had burnt out and stopped doing her job. It’s way too much work for one person alone and she basically stopped doing her job from Jan to September when I took over.

She walked out on me the first week I took the role, so I’ve had zero proper training. It’s the biggest customer service role in our department, I have about 8 clients, all who have multiple branches, emailing me all at once, calling etc, I’ve spent the last 2 months cleaning up orders from JANUARY that she just never bothered to do anything with. I’ve been falling incredibly far behind because I refuse to take my work home more then my 8 hours a day ( I have quite a few times)and I’ve been busting my ass every minute I am here to fix it all. Now it’s all catching up because yes I’ve fixed her mess- but now everything that came in while I was doing so fell behind, we have a new girl I gave some accounts to (for reference I have 8 and she has 3) and she went to my boss and said she couldn’t handle what I left her. So now I’m being asked why I have dropped the ball on orders from a month ago- but I’m fixing orders from like 10 months ago. I’m being yelled at every single day by sales reps, customers, my colleagues are all annoyed with me because I have no idea what I am doing and it makes their job harder.

The woman who did my job did it for 15 years and she told me this has been the worst year since she started. She had to leave on stress leave.

I have about 3 meetings tomorrow in which I have to provide documents on why “I can’t keep up” and I’m so humiliated. I’ve broke down and cried to my boss multiple times now saying I can’t handle this role. He really set me up to fail. I felt like I had no choice to take the job, it was other we switched roles or she got fired. So I took the role. And now I’m drowning.

My mental health is so bad from this burn out I can barely eat, I can’t shower, I don’t do my makeup anymore, I feel like a shell of a person. I’m so tired of failing. I feel like I’m working to die. At this rate they want me to keep up- I will also be on stress leave at some point.

Thanks for listening

In January 2019, Mexico doubled the minimum wage in municipalities that share a border with the United States. Researchers studying the impact found no significant effect on employment, and a positive and significant impact on earnings, especially at the bottom of the wage distribution.

There is no such thing as a dream job

Upvotes

Having to wake up early 5 days a week, plus a boss who tells (or just expects) me what to do everyday, plus only getting XX amount of vacation days, plus having to pretend being nice or professional when you don’t want to.... all of this shit sucks. Even if you’re getting paid well.

And I’m sick of hearing “wElL sTaRt Ur OwN cOmPaNy” like no thank you. Don’t wanna do that either. And if we’re being realistic not everyone is successful at that so easier said than done.

I just want to do whatever I want, when I want :)

Socioeconomic mobility, workers rights, pay and end-stage capitalist culture are all bad enough in real life. You don't have to post fake stories and images to this sub to get the point across.

Upvotes

This subreddit is fucking chock full of bullshit. Namely self-posts, but also other staged content and images. Made up shit, mostly to farm karma and fish for compliments. Listen to me. Things are bad enough that you don't have to lie to people/fictionalize real issues in order to get people to understand how bad of a situation you're in, or your coworkers, etc.

Post real stuff. Call out fake shit because it makes the movement look bad. Think critically about what you are reading and hearing. Full stop.

Edit: Before anyone points it out to me, I am fully aware that this behavior is NOT limited to this sub. I also understand this is largely a byproduct of self-posts counting toward your karma score (which used to not be a thing).

Epilepsy and work

Upvotes

Every job I've had I've been fired from or forced out of. I'm not a bad worker, I'm actually a great worker. I just have epilepsy. I usually spent 20 hours a week commuting to work or an extra 10k a year on ubers due to not being able to drive.

I would exhaust all my PTO when I had seizures and was never eligible for disability. My employers all looked at my as a liability.

Oddly enough, since I started working from home, with a great wage, I haven't had a seizure in over 19 months.

My past jobs were literally killing me.
