My wife's company reconfigured their staff at the end of the year, anticipating this rule change. They eliminated half of their management, moving those employees to hourly wage earners, and mandated no one work more than 40 hours a week.
Congratulations to Lisa and her leftwing idiocy. All these people owe you a great round of thanks, for the pay cut they received this new year.
Life would be better for everyone if we didn't work ourselves to death, anyway
This country is so drugged up, stressed out and depressed.. Something is very wrong with this consumer culture that leaves so many folks with little to no economic security
Sure, some companies can't afford to pay folks more, but sometimes I wonder how many make those changes just to protect their bottom line
These businesses are use to paying people unfair wages, I've seen time and time again where people work their ass off to run their own stores like Pizza Hut or OReillys, and these people take $900 every two weeks
Some businesses are in a bind, but I do think if we just had a different mentality in the USA, we wouldn't be stuck in this vicious cycle. If those huge corporations paid better wage, it would help circulate that money around the economy and get into the hands of small businesses who actually are having a tough time
