anotherblognobodycaresabout asked: It seems a lot of people have a problem understanding that wages aren't determined by how subjectively "difficult" a job is. A job one person finds to be hard and stressful could be a breeze to another person. The latter would theoretically be more willing to do it for less than the first. The employer determines how much they are willing to spend on labor, and the employee determines what particular tasks they are willing to do for what amount of money.
BAM! Well said.
i should get paid for the hour before and after the eight hour workday because the hour before is all about getting there and the hour after is about decompressing. from the second i get out of bed to the second i peel off my work socks and get into gym shorts i should be getting paid money
I’d like to see that pitched to a supervisor.
Op sounds like a self entitled person who thinks they shod get paid for just existing.
Back in the days when I ran a construction crew, I would have just smiled and told whoever pitched this that they can go ahead and take the day off… as well as every day after that. Like hell I’d pay you when you aren’t producing anything for me.
You’re complaining about not having a job… but you voted for Obama twice?
Even though its republicans and big businesses who took jobs away? Oh man, you have a lot to learn.
Businesses provide jobs, lmfao.
Big businesses that outsource jobs for cheaper labor? Yeah, they provide jobs for others but NOT this country
Outsourcing has benefits- less power to the unions. The labor is still quality. Outsourcing saves a company a lot of money, which, in turn, would go towards hiring more people. It’s win/win.
You’re burying the lead: Why do companies, and not just “big business,” outsource to other countries?
High taxes, administration costs, price of labor, health care costs, excessive regulations… AKA government intrusion.
This is why many companies relocate to states with low to no state income tax and low cost of living and, sometimes, out of the country. It’s big government that causes the problem in the first place and Obama is the poster boy for big government.
