- was wondering what that **** was about
please tell me what is happening
yeah thats true mann
- >implying she would do that if she weren't on minimum wage
Tell me again why you're on...
If you can't work hard on minimum, you shouldn't be paid above. Minimum wage isn't supposed to be something you can live off of, its supposed to be for teenagers or young adults in college. If you want higher pay, you have to work your ass off for it, and no amount of saying "but they just wont pay her that" or bitching about how they should raise it will change that fact. Good work ethic should be part of what you do, regardless of paygrade, and trust me, if you work hard enough, it IS noticed. If its not, work harder.
If you pay your employees the minimum amount you're allowed, you shouldn't be surprised if they have the minimum work ethic they have to. Not saying they should do that, but most minimum wage jobs don't have a lot of real upward mobility.
Did you copy and paste that from FOX News?
What you're missing is that it's not brace faced teens holding min wage jobs, but adults ranging from 18-28. Most minimum wage jobs are designed to keep you at your current pay grade or a little above, therefore forcing you to either work more or get another job in order to live. Need I mention that the poverty line for the typical 4 person family is aprox $28,000/year. Min wage worked 40 hours a week doesn't even come close to that. I'd like to see anyone try and support a proper family off of about $11,000/year
TLDR: Work ethic has nothing to do with a broken system
All I'm saying is that regardless of pay, people need to work. And it bothers me when I see people doing a shit job and complaining about their pay.
>Regardless of pay
You understand why people work, right? 99% of people have jobs to support themselves or their families, and when you can't support either regardless of what KIND of job you're doing, you have every right to complain.
Think about it like this: You just get employed at a local [insert fast food place here]. You know you'll start at min wage, but after working for a few months and doing what is asked of you, you ask for a 50 cent raise. The manager declines due to one reason or another. Why in fuck would you still WANT to do a good job at your job?
Just food for thought.
No pun intended
I can understand what you're saying, and I do agree, that if someones been working for a year at a shit job, working their hardest, and can't get even a little raise, then they have a right too. But it seems to me that SO many people nowdays think they're entitled to higher pay when they don't put in the work to get it. People treat a job like the pay is a handout instead of money for services rendered, and when they don't get as much as they wanted, they whine about it. Personally, while I think good pay should be given for good work, I also feel that someone should always do a job to the best of their ability, regardless of what they're being paid. If your job is to stock shelves, put out fires, balance a checkbook, or just lift heavy things, do it as best you can, the money may or may not follow, but if it doesn't, that isn't an excuse for slacking on the job. If the boss is a jerk who refuses to give you a raise after dedicated and good work, then quit and find a new job, its hard and downright unreasonable sometimes, but possible, but I don't feel like bad pay is a valid excuse for fucking up a job you were hired to do. I'm just tired of seeing people who hardly work at all complaining about minimum wage, when I had to work my ass off every night just to live off ramen to put myself through college. I don't know, maybe I'm biased and bitter about it, but I was raised to always put 100% in, and if my boss is an asshole, he can find someone else to do my job.
in other news, thanks for being one of the good people on here to be willing to have a discussion instead of an argument. Don't see enough people willing to say their point of view without yelling at each other anymore, so its nice!
Ys, that is how it SHOULD work, but unfortunately, it isn't. There are many hardworking people who do have to live of minimum wage, or close to it. Also, minimum wage is supposed to be the minimum amount of money that one person can make in order to support a family of four at a "comfortable" standard of living while working 40 hours a week.
Does the extra 4 dollars an hour somehow grow a work ethic and integrity?
A lazy bitch is a lazy bitch, a few extra dollars isn't going to stop her from slacking off after a rough day when she thinks nobody is watching.
I got plenty of raises when I was in high school working in fast food, didn't change my work ethic one bit, if you're passionate about the job you're passionate about the job, if you're not you're not.
