War-Veteran Mechanic Wins a $400,000 Settlement After Calling His Dirtbag Ex-Boss's Bluff

Not many of us have the financial luxury to sue anybody. Even if we have a case of a hostile workplace or cut wages or unpaid overtime, usually the cost of a lawyer is enough to dissuade us from pursuing justice. Unfortunately, this is how a lot of blue-collar and minimum-wage employees are exploited time and time again... But there are stories of fabled heroes standing up for the little man, where justice prevails and dirtbag bosses get exactly what they deserve.

'I'm oddly happy': Brave employee is overwhelmingly encouraged after getting wrongfully fired, going viral for rebelling against a toxic workplace

Nobody wants to get fired around the holidays. It's objectively the worst time to lose your source of income and it's also consequently the worst time to find a NEW job. Since everyone's already enjoying their ‘let’s circle back in 2024' season, you're unlikely to get a sit down with the hiring department in any employment position... unless you're interested in retail. For that reason, most workers don't stage a coup against management during the holidays, but in our next story...

'I fired a guy for trying to drive a scissor lift down the stairs': 25+ Safety watchdogs who were caught off guard by careless companies

Maybe safety measures seem like common knowledge to us, but lots of companies would rather save a few bucks and let their employees take on the risk. That's why there's OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which doles out punishments for workplaces that don't protect their workers. However, OSHA is very understaffed, and there's a lot that slips through the cracks. Have you ever seen videos of demolition workers who are trying to bring down a building by themselves? They wil…

'Over 400 hectares [burned]': Arrogant supervisor pushes his railroad workers to bend the rules on safety protocols; starts a raging wildfire, then gets justly fired for negligence

Some people just want to watch the world burn. But when you're the one guy who's only job is to prevent destruction from consuming the job site, that's exactly what you're trying to avoid. For some supervisors, especially the arrogant kind with a ‘i-can-do-no-wrong' attitude, being the safety guy at a construction site doesn't actually mean anything. They just want to trot around, puff their chest, and tell everyone what to do– even if it's the wrong call.

'If you fall you're fired before you hit the ground': Roofer refuses to do dangerous job 35-feet in the air and gets written up, starts gathering photos for OSHA

Roofing is an extremely dangerous job that is completely underrated in just how dangerous it is. Roofers are another breed, man. It's not only dangerous because you're literally working on something where if you make one false move or bad step, you could lose the use of your legs. But it is also dangerous because often times they don't even have benefits, pensions, healthcare, etc. It's absolutely absurd. The leading driver for OSHA fines as been the lack of fall protection for several years no…

'You gotta risk it to get the biscuit' may be one of the greatest tropes of all time for risk-takers, go-getters, and people who are known for absolutely sending it. Like the football legends of yore, skydivers on their first solo flight, or the self-proclaimed ‘disruptors’ of the world, this phrase is a basically a commandment. However, what is the proverbial 'biscuit' even worth these days? Is it worth your life?

Trade jobs are needed more than ever. And with more electric powering coming into demand, electricians are one of the trades that are at the top of the list.
