Just wondering since capitalism is a system used almost worldwide
Just been let go
Was told it wasn't working out to which I agreed and parted ways and after I left boss told other staff I was a thief and couldn't be trusted
I got my first yearly merit increase!
A whopping 2.5% from 17.23 to 17.66. When mentioning to my supervisor that my very large multinational company posted nearly $15 billion in net profits last year and the top five execs made almost $100 million, I was told “no company gives raises in line with inflation. I've been here 14 years and that's how it's always been.” Not going to call out this company because they have a very large social media presence and a not great reputation, and I have no prospects lined up for a new job.
Ours was a video of our whole c-level exec team saying “thank you”
Mind Games at Work
I question myself CONSTANTLY here. I work in the office of a plumbing company. My dad is the owner, my brother is the VP, and another woman runs the office. I am an assistant. I try really hard but this company has so many moving parts that it's easy for things to get lost in the shuffle. I write myself notes to keep on top of things so I don't forget. Every afternoon I check tomorrows job folder to make sure all the tickets are there. Especially the jobs I take. Yesterday, I checked the folder and saw two that I missed and I put them in.

I was able to get it handled relatively easily but the more I think about it the more angry I…
Recently we had an issue with management about assuming overtime. A fellow employee clocked out in a different area. HR ruled that we are free from our shop at 345 and can clock out anywhere after that time at 4. We’ll last time I went to HR to get ALL policies available she gave me the generic stuff. Not the specific stuff. Why? And how can I get access to ALL of it?
Hello all, I work in healthcare. About 6 months ago half of our team quit, including our trainer. We never officially hired a new trainer so I took over with assisting new hires and our current team in every way. I guess I could say I was the unofficial trainer, since this was not reflected on my pay or my job title. Over that time period every single coworker and new hire recognized me to HR, some people did multiple times. I was doing this for $15 an hour. 3 months into this my employer said “to match the current market everyone is getting a $1 raise. Fast forward to last week, my employer announces we are merging with another team, came into our area and said EVERYONE is getting promoted, to the role I had been working for, for the past 6 months +. I was then raised to…
How American Oligarchs Came to Power
Would your boss be there? Would they even notice? Would they care? I saw a caricature once of the boss screaming onto someone in a casket: “How could you do this to me?!” I thought this is ridiculous. They'd be way too “busy” to come to the funeral and would probably fire me for not showing up to work before they find out I'm dead.
