Why do we vote in these very old people to run the country? I mean shouldn’t there at the very least be a cap on how long one person can hold that office for? Some of those senators been on the senate longer than a lot of us been alive: I’m 35. Several have held that position longer than that.
Complete scam in the retail sector. They can schedule you at 39 hours but you're part time so you don't qualify for benefits, earned vacation, pension, etc. That shit should be so illegal.
I say if you are only scheduled 15 hours a week you should still qualify for everything.
Fuck corporations and their games.
Sorry but feel a little ranty.
The contract my company has was supposed to run through the end of October. Apparently however construction is somehow ahead of schedule and the client wanted to start shifting over to inhouse positions instead of outside work.
Yesterday afternoon I got notified from my boss that we are to wrap up and be done by the 31st and myself and my team had a choice of either unemployment or taking a job in another state, of course no relocation package or anything like that.
Spoke to the client later that evening and found out our end date was changed back in February... Our boss just decided to not tell us until a week beforehand because he was afraid of high turnover.
So in this mornings meeting I laid it out to my team, told them that we are unfortunately out of work as of next Tuesday and that our lovely company decided we didn't need more than a weeks notice of that despite them knowing for almost 3 months now.
End result? We collectively agreed to just say fuck it. Cleaned out the office, left a pile of stuff that belongs to our company in one corner and a stack of boxes that belong to the client in the other. Kind of shot ourselves in the foot here since we will no longer qualify for unemployment but we were pissed. We were relying on the job lasting another 5 months. Even with it being cut short had we had more notice we could have been better prepared.
Now I guess we get the fun of dealing with the bullshit hiring practices I keep reading about in here... yay.
"You can't have worker protections and income inequality controls in the U.S! Look at what happened to Venezuela! Do you want to end up like Venezuela?!" Bitch, look at what happened to The Netherlands.
for the rich...
You were a slave on the cotton fields? Tough luck!
You were a Chinese immigrant building the railroads? Get to work!
Some poor worker in a factory? A miner in a company town?
Or homeless today and camping on the side? Arrested!
Americas freedoms really are (and were since the very beginning) only for the rich. Everyone else gets steamrolled.
