'[I can] quit whenever]:' Contractor quits after boss snubs him on benefits, costs company over $2k and 25 days of lost productivity

There is a distinct different between working for a company and working independently. They both have their ups and downs, but it's a career choice many people make with very clear intentions on why. So when this contractor, who very much worked for a legit company, was getting treated financially as if he were an independent contractor, he decided to act accordingly. This contractor shared his story on Reddit and said that his boss was snubbing him on benefits. His boss made it very clear that…

antiwork fired manager tradesman salary-negotiating upper management workplace Reddit job interview blue collar concrete-company-employee construction workers - 21494533

'Manager wouldn’t even look at me': New hire at concrete company gets job offer unexpectedly withdrawn, HR says he was "in no position to negotiate"

Let's start this off with saying, if you get told during a job interview that you are in “no position to negotiate” you should immediately see that as a red flag. The interview is just as much for the employer as it is for the potential employee. This is the exact time you are most definitely supposed to negotiate your salary. And if they withdraw their application because you enquires about the pay, then what else would they have dropped you on for? You make one tiny mistake or ask for water d…

'Ohh well, I can wait': Gas pump blockers fuel truck drivers' revenge

The blocking of gas pumps is one of those everyday entitled behaviors that, while relatively innocuous, tips over into mildly infuriating levels of moderate frustration. These people probably are the same ones who cut up an empty turn lane or shoulder to dodge traffic. Their behavior isn't illegal in any sense, but it defies the sensibilities of us more civilized and compassionate folk. These truckers had had enough of people (including other truckers) blocking fuel pumps by taking their 30-min…

'Call you as soon as I leave the ER': Contractor fakes injury using a photo from the internet to avoid working, gets fired

Contractors have a certain reputation, and while that might not be fair to all contractors and may have more to do with the complicated challenges of sourcing the correct materials in reasonable timeframes, this stereotype exists for a reason. Everyone has had that experience or knows someone who has had that experience with a contractor who repeatedly fails to meet deadlines, fails to communicate, and sometimes just plain fails to show up when everything is already ready to go. Some contractor…

'I'd be paid $6 an hour': Bar manager rebels against lazy boss who gives him an ultimatum, gets fired because he refused to work extra hours below minimum wage

'I'd be paid $6 an hour': Bar manager rebels against lazy boss who gives him an ultimatum, gets fired because he refused to work extra hours below minimum wage

Have you ever worked for tips before? When you work a job where tips are your main source of income, that becomes the primary focus of each day capitalizing on how to get more tips. In some cheapskate states, restaurants are allowed to pay you LESS than minimum wage because it's expected that you'll be making more in tips on top of that, thus making restaurant work a minimum wage job again. * huge eye roll * As everyone knows, that's not guaranteed...

'$1300 on a fill-up': Annoying boss fired when stupid 'no-stopping' rule fuels trucker's revenge

There's nothing worse than unnecessary interference from middle management when you're just trying to do your job. You know how to do your job; they know you know how to do your job… But that's not going to stop them from hitting you with every stupid meddling directive that they possibly can to make it look like they're doing something and justify their salary. After all, it only flows in one direction: downwards. And it's easier for them to nod their head and smile when their boss comes up wi…

Work can get boring sometimes, especially when the bulk of your job is to sit around and wait for things to happen.

Claiming he could do a full 12 hour shift in 4 hours time, Gasp struggled to make himself seem busy while he was clocked in and on the job and paid the ultimate price for following the habits of his other coworker…
