  • Yeah the behavior I see and hear about from friends in the industry is pretty crazy.

    • And, I hate to say it, but this goes back to why I would not have hired her. A $200K white collar worker is not going to put up with that BS and probably walks off the job after 2 weeks. Someone who’s in collections and about to be evicted will. Simple as that.

        Can confirm. I worked at Meijer. Someone intentionally left a package of bacon on the rotisserie chicken stand. Cooked it and it had to be tossed.

        Someone screamed at our produce team lead, ending his vitriol with "WHITE POWER!" Dude also intentionally wore his mask below his chin, and his mask had "arbeit macht frei" on it.

        I had my pronouns on my badge. Got called "he" 10x more.

        To be fair, I make more money with Door Dash and Uber Eats than I ever did with Meijer.

        • Speaking of labor shortages, Wisconsin is totally fine with letting 14 year olds work as late as 11 PM.

            Pretty much irrelevant. Heck, even Minnesota's child labor laws are more lax than the Fed's.

            Unless a business can figure out how to exempt itself from the federal rules, they'll still have to abide by their hours. If your business generates I think something like $500,000 a year in gross revenues, or the employee engages in interstate commerce, you are stuck with the federal rules. Pretty much everyone engages in interstate commerce, given how broadly that is interpreted.

            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

              Gotta hustle to re-instill the acceptance of wage slavery from a young age, now that Millennials and Zoomers are realizing it's a dead end.

                So I shouldn't have been working the 7-midnight or the overnight shifts at the local AM/FM radio station back (OK, way back) when I was 15 years old?

                What'd I learn in that job? Show up on time, hit your marks, speak slower to go faster, and get out of local radio.

                    Nope. I thought we all agreed child labor is generally not a good thing.

                            I like how you're proud that you were exploited for cheap labor as a child. Explains a lot.

                            And before you start pulling your usual schtick, no we're not talking about a lemonade stand, babysitting one night a week, doing household chores, shoveling driveways, or other child appropriate activities.

                            But yeah, if you were sticking your hand into a combine or other heavy machinery to clear it out because your hand was smaller than your old man's, that was not cool.

                              That's what you do on a family farm. And I'd go and help out on uncles' farms also.

                              How do you think I learned to weld, drive (cars or field equipment), basic repair, small engine repair, rough construction (framing and electrical), basic machining, and a bunch of other useful skills. Farm kid skills.


                              What sounds "exploitive" to you is "life skills" to me.
