Tell me you think "way past expiration date" means "drown it in sauce and make it today's special" and "nobody sees back here so don't waste time cleaning" and "'employee tip jar?' well, they wouldn't have a job for earn those tips without me so I'm going to take half" without actually saying it.

$3 in benefits sounds like the legally required minimum.

They are Replican voting libertarians who have no idea how a business actually works?

Don't forget the fine print: the ACTUAL starting wage is 13$/hr, but you make 16$ when you factor in all their AMAZING benefits. Lol. Lmao. I wonder how white and trumpy the owners are.

They suck at keeping people because they suck at paying people.

No one is owed a livelihood that depends on subsidies from customers and poverty wages to succeed.

Someone's got to name the diner.
 
2022-07-03 8:22:24 AM  
Anyone figure out which diner it is? I like NJ diners, I don't like assholes.
 
2022-07-03 8:25:50 AM  
It's your diner, work there yourself.  Surely a bootstrappy person like yourself can manage a few simple tasks. Sounds like the owner is a lazy slob who just doesn't want to work anymore.
 
2022-07-03 8:50:13 AM  
Imagine going around playing 81% of everything you owe and telling people the rest of the cost is covered by the benefit of your having used the service.

I'm okay with it being used to spread the word about some entitled owners in cases like this in the language and medium of the workers that would be applying.

Shiat wage, but I'd like to have chicken tender benefits in my wage!

It already is.  When you see these displays of impotent rage, it usually means it's all over.

I love the "paid sick time (with doctor's note)" listed proudly as a benefit, despite paid sick time being a mandate from the state that's been in effect since 2018. And IIRC, the employee can legally tell them to go fark themselves when asked for a doctor's note unless the sick leave lasts over 3 days, was unforeseeable, and occurred during a perviously established and communicated "blackout period."

Know your rights, folks.
 
2022-07-03 10:56:47 AM  
Why is it that restauranteurs, in particular, think it's everyone's fault but their own that their business is challenging?  Stop farking complaining to your customers about how hard you have it!  I've got my own problems.  I just want something to eat.

Is this illegal job advertisement?  There's a difference between pay and compensation.  Just more proof there isn't meritocracy in the ownership class. Can't even get the basics right.
 
2022-07-03 11:21:34 AM  
Sorry, asshole, your business isn't entitled to workers who put up with your crappy wages and other bullshiat.
 
2022-07-03 11:27:05 AM  
media barely falls short of naming rape victims in news stories but this time it's mystery diner from hell. hmm. what's up with that?
 
2022-07-03 11:33:22 AM  
Owners like the asshole in TFA think opening the business means their work is over, and that everything will be handed to them going forward.

And when that doesn't happen, they blame everything else but their stupid and arrogant assumptions.

I've been noticing this a bit more with some asshole companies. It used to be just the "Pay: Up to $X" when the high end of that number was only achievable if you were related to or having sex with the owner. But now it's "Pay: $X!!!" followed by fine print of "(Consisting of significantly <$X with assorted benefits - some of which aren't even tangible - that they claim are worth the difference)".

Scum.

Isn't it typical that the idiots who say Biden is a socialist don't understand capitalism? Idiots, trump voters, they're the same thing.

Gonna need the name of the diner, which article of course omits.

I hadn't seen any of those "I did that" gas-pump stickers. Turns out, they were all on the couple of pumps here that dispense diesel.

Paid sick time with a doctors note. So, you'll get your 100 bucks for the day so long as you spend 300 on a doctors appointment.

Visit Oklahoma sometime. I had to make a trip there earlier this year and at least one gas station I visited had them on every single pump.

Exactly. I managed a pizza place and the two owners were there pretty much ever day of the week 60-70 hours a week each for the first five years they were open. They now have three restaurants that survived the worst of the pandemic and have employees they can trust to keep their business going without them if they want to take a few days off. It's taken them 15+ years, but they are successful because they work their asses off and treat their employees like they would want to be treated.

The idiots stack very high in this world. Happens when our "betters" breed with each other for a couple generations.

Like " I don't understand why I don't get signal in my wine cellar" stupid.

That's why they want to eliminate the estate tax. The idiot kids can only lose the family fortune, not grow it.

What do you bet that the "free snacks" are whatever is left on the customer plates when they are done.
 
2022-07-03 8:59:27 PM  
No time for that kind of shiat, not any more. Demand what you're worth, walk away from abusive, negligent, criminal, or just plain incompetent employers.

Not to mention said doctor's note would cost more than said paid sick leave.

And I abhor all these signs offering x$/hr. wages, but charging x+2$/hour for childcare complaining "no one wants to work anymore" because no one would take a job for negative two dollars an hour. Then they blame Biden's Build Back Better law for their failure of arithmetic; you know, the one that *hasn't even passed yet.*

Not always. Even by us the family (mom & pop) diner pays better than than, with benefits, health insurance, and paid time off. Somehow, they never seem to have an issue hiring servers / cooks. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the place has platinum benefits at all, just the basics, but they have 10 freaking employees (plus the husband/wife owners / plus 4 summer hires) and manage to pay their servers decently... and the servers get all their tips. None of that $4/hr plus tips bullshiat. Probably because the owners started as a server and short order cook. No, they're probably never going to be super rich, but they do very well and  have a good nest egg.

My fave was a couple petrol station chains putting up a sign for a while that said:

"Stop putting stickers on our pumps or we will prosecute you for vandalism.

Our employees have enough to do without wasting their time scraping off stickers from people who think they're being clever."
