There's a solution to problems like this, you work someone more than 5 days straight, every day after they get double pay. And after 15 days triple. Failure to comply is a fine of $100,000 per day. With half that going to the employee. Seriously this crap of having work day after day and/or insane hours has to stop.

Great Janitor: jimmyjackfunk: Great Janitor: highwayrun: cameroncrazy1984: Submitted First With a Better Headline: Nope. Just a person who worked plenty of wage slave jobs to get through college. I put up with a lot of crap at crap jobs, but there are also things that you shouldn't reasonably be expected to put up with. Working 22 days straight is one of those things, and I commend people who walk out when they're treated like shiat.

In some places, it's illegal, douchebag.

The only place it's actually illegal to just walk out of is jail.

to be fair, you can face criminal charges if you work somewhere like as a prison guard, or military (abandonment of post, awol, etc). as far as the tipping thing goes i wouldn't let my wife nor any of my kids take any job where the tips are "pooled" and then split up. The wife understands where i am coming from but the 16 year old daughter could see my point when I tried to explain about how tips and minimum wage were figured in a job like that. finally just put our foot down and said no that'll learn her lol.

The only time when a tip pool is acceptable to me is if you're a team of valets for a party and one valet is directing traffic and not parking cars. That valet isn't getting tip money. In a situaton like that I don't mind pooling the tips. Because if he/she wasn't out the directing traffic to the party then the other valets wouldn't be getting any tips at all.

There is a car wash in my home town where the car wash attendees pool the tips at the end of the shift. I only know this because of a friend of mine who works there. He and some of his coworkers have a bit of resentment towards a coworker who has extremely poor customer service, doesn't actually earn any tips, but at the end of the day, his tips are equal to the rude employee's tips.


I worked at a seasonal ice cream / take-out food place for a summer. We pooled our tips and then went on a trip after the shop closed up north (MI) and then had a bowling competition to figure out who got how much of the tip jar after trip expenses (we all got 10% - and I think we had 7 employees, so 30% was up for grabs).

Yeah, if you had crappy customer service at the counter you got less tips (voluntary, in a jar), but everyone else working was crucial to that customer being happy enough to tip too. Made enough sense. Just pissed I got tipsy beforehand and didn't bowl that well. Fairly sure my friend who also worked there planned that in advance...

Overtime and taxes...

In an hourly job a certain amount of overtime is withheld at the regular tax rate (varies by state), the rest at about 40%. Key here is it is withholding. Doesn't' change your end of year tax bracket - you earn what you earn. You just paid in more and may be entitled to a bigger refund.

Bonuses work like this, too.

/not an accountant, but I guess I could play one on tv.

Shwirv: I think this is great. However, what I don't understand is why the worker just didn't show up for work on the 4th of July. He could have probably kept his job, seeing as he was needed in the store for 22 days straight, I'd assume he isn't easily replaceable. And if they fired him, he gets unemployment. And seeing as he quit, it doesn't seem likely he is concerned about his economic situation. Quitting is the worst thing you can do when you are in a bad work situation.

The best thing to do is not care, not show up, and don't take things seriously. You'll drag out your employment, have fun, and when they fire you, you get unemployment!

22 days straight? Pussy. Unless they were all 12 hour days, pfft. I once worked every day for like 5 months delivering chicken. I admit, they weren't long hours, but I ended up at the same place every day regardless. I also worked dumbass on-call hours, which felt like a mistake looking back. And the one day I wanted off, I was still called in during the day to take a delivery. The only 3 days I remember having off during an 8 month span was Easter, Thanx, and Xmas. You want to know why I had off those days? Go ahead and guess.... yep, the only 3 days the place was closed.

I don't mind working retail/restaurant, but there's something to actually treating people like humans and recognizing their deeds and respecting their wishes. Well, if you can make it work out properly at least.

martissimo: I occasionally get in spots where a little bit of OT can actually cost me money, but it's hard to do (and if you know that it's coming it isn't to hard to change withholding on a W2 for that spot)


Umm, no. Sorry, but that is complete, utter bullshiat (assuming, of course that you live in the United States or any other country with a system of marginal tax rates), and with all due respect, you are either a liar or you're misinformed. In the U.S., since tax brackets are marginal, only the marginal amount over the maximum of the next lowest bracket is taxed at the higher rate, so it is impossible for increased wages to "cost you money," no matter how many teabaggers might tell you otherwise.

Many of us worked shiatty jobs like the one described, where working every farking weekend and holiday (probably the night shift, to boot) was expected. Those of us who managed to get educated and/or do a good job and move on to something better have a reasonable expectation of having holidays off work and making a decent salary.

Man up, Nancy. Pay your dues. Then you can afford to take it easy every now and then.

You obviously haven't been to Southern California.


I moved up to Northern California and still miss the quality of the Mexican food in southern California. About a year after I moved I flew down to visit family. My mom asked me what I wanted for dinner the first night. A burrito from Pancho's! I was overruled by other family members who wanted Thai. I gave in for family unity, plus I like Thai food. So the next day I head over to Pancho's to get my burrito fix. They had closed permanently. The previous day was their last day in business. I never forgave my family for that mistake.

I've...eaten there. It is run so farking poorly, the employees were back talking to the manager, after they farked my order up twice. The manager was nice and conciliatory, but did not seem competent at handling employees. So despite his efforts- I'm not going back. Basically, the employees make me surprised more trailers aren't exploding.

Seriously, when I was younger and working shiat fast food jobs, I so would have done this, if possible.

CSB time.

My first real job was at age 17 in 1966. I was working a summer job between my junior and senior years in high school. Almost all of my friends were working as bag boys in the local supermarkets. I didn't want to do that. I wanted something different.

I took a job as a hamburger, etc. chef at a fast food place, a White Castle wannabe chain called Royal Castle in Sarasota, FL. They not only served burgers and fries 24/7 but had a breakfast menu, too.

Shortly after I started there, the manager got promoted to district manager and the asst. manager took over. Aside from the fact he was a little weasel, he also turned out to be a crook. A month and a half after he took over, he came in one night, emptied out the cash register, then went to the previous manager's home and stole a set of auto tires, a battery and split town.

A new manager was brought in, some guy in his fifties who moved into the motel across the highway and drank a lot.

Remember when I said this place had a breakfast menu? It was for any time of the day. I normally worked from 3 to 11 PM. One day, a guy came in around 4PM and wanted eggs over easy. That meant flipping them in the pan w/o breaking the yolks. Try as I might, I had an extremely hard time doing that. So, I'm trying to do that and failing, but our new manager is standing behind me, berating me, giving me all kinds of shiat for failing and making me do it over and over again. At about the sixth time, the customer has had enough and tells my manager, "Hey, I don't care. I'll take it as is, just stop being so hard on the kid," and he does it forcefully enough to make my boss stop. Half an hour later, my boss apologises to me in the back room. Then, I was just a tall, skinny kid, still under the impression that it is wrong for me to question my elders, i.e., tell the mofo to farking berate me in private and apologise in front of the customers.

However, it was at this point that I started to question the wisdom of that.

Two weeks later, after older, more experienced workers had had enough of this shiat and quit, the guy told me I had to work past my shift. No, I didn't get to go home at 11 PM, I had to work thru until 7 AM. On a Friday night. By myself, At 17, a clear violation of the child labor laws.

It wasn't too bad until around 2 AM when the bars closed and and I got a run of drunks. Come 7 AM, the boss hows up, hung over and takes me to task for the place not being spotless. He keeps me there until 8 AM, cleaning and cooking while he sits on his fat, drunk ass. Then he tells me I have to be back in at 3 PM.

I did show up at 3 PM, to quit. The state manager was there when I came in and I unloaded on my boss. I had gotten along well with the state manager and he was just dumbstruck, so much so that he forgot the cigarette in his hand until it burned a hole in his trousers. I got some added satisfaction when I went in two weeks later for my final check and found the manager had been fired.
 
2011-07-15 03:44:17 AM  
Here at my job, we have been on seven day work weeks since January. We had memorial day off but not July 4th. Not feeling up to the math, but that's a lot of days in a row. But my area has shiat for alternative employment unless you want to make almost nothing.

I lived in SO Cal for a few years I liked the beto's (al, ro, and hum prefixes) You could have substituted and still had a decient burrio.
I remember my first outing in San Diego was with a carne asda burrio w/guac and a cold beer on the beach (when you could have beer on the beach). SO AZ still has the best Mexican food I have ever had especially the home made kind.

If he worked 22 days straight he probably asked for more hours, and shouldn't have done so expecting special treatment in return. Furthermore, he's not on salary. He got paid to work extra days.

I remember a guy telling me how he was driving Thanksgiving or Christmas eve late and was low on gas and finally found an open C store. The place was lit up, but the pumps wouldn't turn on. He was going in to see what the deal was when he met a guy locking the front door behind him. He asked why the pumps wouldn't work and the guy just said "read the sign".
He looked up at the marquee which read FARK IT - I QUIT. Guess this guy didn't want to work holidays either.

So 90% of English literature is obscure now? I only see this objection to the singular 'they' from folks that are poorly read, very young, very dumb, or some combination of the three.

Kevin72: dollar


I worked at a Taco Bell once a long time ago. This guy came in and tried to pay with a 'Two Dollar Bill'. It was some fake dollar bill with a two instead of a one. Unfortunatly the cop who showed up to arrest him must have been his friend because he said it was real and forced Taco Bell to take it. The manager ended up putting in two dollars in place of the two dollar bill so the bank didn't charge us with fraud. I think he ended up giving it to a stripper.

I'm not bullshiatting you man, I have seen it happen on my checks. work a 40 hr week at straight time get around 1k, work 50 hrs or so and get 1k with a LOT more withheld, I guess if you want to say "costing you money" is wrong, then ya ok, but busting your ass a little aint making you shiat either

Reminds me of a couple freinds who were co managers of a now long defunct chain of PC stores. (think of Radio Shack, but ONLY PCs and components).

They were told that theirs was one of the stores closing in two weeks, all hourly workers were fired effective immediately, and that they were responsible for holding the GooB sale, but that after they were done, they would have no job, no opportunity to move to another area store, no severance, etc.

Oh, and notice all hourly staff was canned already... That meant only two (salaried) guys keeping the store open and properly staffed M-F 8a-9p for two weeks. Straight.

They went out and made a huge sign and posted it in the window:


FIRE SALE!

Everyone is fired, so everything is on sale!

Great Janitor: but the manager actually cost him money. I actually didn't learn this until my now wife, then girlfriend, worked for Fidelity and learned some tax codes and rules.


Apparently she didn't learn them very well. Yes, the employee may have paid a higher percentage of those additional dollars as taxes, but rates are progressive - they don't go back and tax the wages below the threshold at the higher rate. So no, getting into the higher bracket did not "cost him money." He had net earnings even after taxes.

Cyberluddite: Umm, no. Sorry, but that is complete, utter bullshiat (assuming, of course that you live in the United States or any other country with a system of marginal tax rates), and with all due respect, you are either a liar or you're misinformed. In the U.S., since tax brackets are marginal, only the marginal amount over the maximum of the next lowest bracket is taxed at the higher rate, so it is impossible for increased wages to "cost you money," no matter how many teabaggers might tell you otherwise.


to be totally fair if they withhold more and you have to wait until next April to get it back then you've taken an economic loss, but you're correct in the sense that your take-home at the end of the year will never be less because you worked more hours.

Taco Bhell is shiat, anyway.

Shwirv: I think this is great. However, what I don't understand is why the worker just didn't show up for work on the 4th of July. He could have probably kept his job, seeing as he was needed in the store for 22 days straight, I'd assume he isn't easily replaceable. And if they fired him, he gets unemployment. And seeing as he quit, it doesn't seem likely he is concerned about his economic situation. Quitting is the worst thing you can do when you are in a bad work situation.

The best thing to do is not care, not show up, and don't take things seriously. You'll drag out your employment, have fun, and when they fire you, you get unemployment!

-Cheers!


You've just summed up everything that is wrong with unemployment.

When I hate a job, I quit out of principle. Getting paid for not doing my job and being fired makes me feel dirty.

Even funnier if he took the long letter-reachin' pole with him on the way out.
