I'll have the $50,000 bottle of wine as payment.

Well, that career sure ended in a hurry.

So in other words...

They were treated like all food service employees

Why yes, I did wait tables for a while, why do you ask?

You were paid in alcohol instead of money when you waited tables?

Although, regarding this article, I'm a little skeptical.

She's not even a good racist.  She should have included purple drank.

"They told us we all had to wear black slacks, black shoes and a white chef jacket with a hat," he reveals. "If we didn't have the money to buy it, they said they would give us the money to go buy it. I didn't want to wear it because it was burning hot outside, but Miss Paula insisted."

"Paula had us all stationed at a few shady spots in the yard," he says. "She wanted us all to stay in one spot. We weren't allowed to move. They didn't want us to interact or anything. They just wanted us to sit there and serve everyone and not say anything."


Working for booze aside, this is stupid. So you had to wear a uniform even though it was uncomfortable. Big farking deal.

They hourly or salary?  My boss makes me do shiat after normal business hours all the time.

Hate those. I'm at work and read stories during moments I can get away from my regular work. It's easy to scan an article and get the gist of it rather than wading through a video. Unless the story IS the video, there should always be a written article that accompanies it.

I saw Paula Deen in the express line at Winn-Dixie and she had like, I swear, seventeen or eighteen items.  And she wrote a check.

Line cooks? I can't tell if this is a serious question.

Just working for white people is payment enough.

Now I'm convinced she's the monster she's been portrayed as.

Did she also leave her cart out in the parking lot? Because if she did that, I'm ready to rampage.

what do you call it when you force somebody to work for no compensation?
 
2013-06-24 02:07:45 PM

An "internship."

Marriage?
 
2013-06-24 02:08:25 PM
Yeah, well once I saw her kick a dog and take a lollipop from a toddler.
 
2013-06-24 02:09:16 PM
Is it worse that she started out as the help and still treats them like that?  I think so.

I will bet dollars to donuts that every single time Paula Deen masturbates, she's imagining getting railed by a legion of black dudes.

Yeah I've never seen that before but that shiat needs to end.

Yes, that is what the help does, they don't mingle, unless they are carrying trays.  They serve the guests.

Which of course begs the question, how do you make a dildo of molded butter black? Cocoa powder?
 
2013-06-24 02:30:45 PM
My guess is that this guy worked for Paula and was salaried, and then worked overtime and wasn't compensated except that he kept his job and/or got alcohol in payment.

I'm not saying that's right, but employers are known to occasionally ask as much from salaried employees - my brother in law was a chef on salary and he often worked 50+ hours without additional pay, although I don't know of any catering style stuff he did. He ended up quitting that job and found a much better position.  I don't know what the standard is in the catering/food service industry though.

Dip it chocolate and then freeze it!

There's no overtime exemption that I'm aware of for non-managerial food service workers.

You should have seen what she heeled down my shower drain.  Took a ferret and two plumbers to clean it out.

Just classify them as managerial.  That's how you screw them out of overtime.

You know, I'd probably watch that.  In fact, I think I *HAVE* (larger mature woman, southern accent, several black guys).

Considering she tried to have a plantation-themed party with black servants in period costumes, this comes across as "She turned me into a newt!" territory.

I did catering for years. You're not special, that's pretty standard for catering gigs.

True. But I bet you actually got paid in money rather than beer.

If it were a uniform appropriate to the environment, I'd agree with you. She had them overdressed on hot days.

I hires my girlfriend's 16 year old daughter to help me with a catering job once, We were serving on a deck and she spilled like 3 gallons of Chinese sesame noodles on the wooden deck. She was mortified. I just cleaned it up, salted the mess so no one would slip and told her not to worry about it. Paid her $80 for 5 Hours of work and drove her both ways. What was I going to do? I was dating her mom, a Meg Ryan look-a-like, with 4 teenaged daughters. They had a pool.
 
2013-06-24 03:21:41 PM
There was a picture in a Deen thread on Friday with Paula's head attached to a hogs body gnawing on an ear of corn. I return to every Deen thread just for that image.

It needs to be here.

Meh, dude did not know how to work free booze. When I work shiat jobs like that and got to paid in "free" booze I'd load my car up with that shiat and sell on the street. Much like your drug dealer I did not care who I sold it too whinos, teenagers, children it really did not matter. The best time I ever had was selling the "free" booze my boss gave me to his 11 year old kid, no I did not even feel bad when the kid wound up in the hospital and had to have her stomach pumped, man she was  freak in the sack.

The standard is hourly, but salaried line cooks and servers are not unheard of.

You guys see the pictures of the people who protest Paula's firing? Man I have not seen that many fat white chicks since the time Lane Bryant ran a buy one get two free sale.
