So you work for these guys despite their willful mistreatment of the unqualified under performing temp workers ?

I don't control these things, BM. They do. I work where I can find work and make a living. If a better job pops up, I'll take it. I don't have a lot of choice in where I work at my current rate and I have too many bills to make less.

I suppose that's about the way the company looks at things too.

Smaller to smaller mid sized companies have to cut pretty much everywhere they can. Large corporations have to watch things, but I've found that they are generally concerned about maximizing profit, even to the extent that they pay a non-living wage, solely to make an earnings report look good. Rarely have I seen a need by large corporations to pay such low wages, other than to get the CEO his next multi-million dollar bonus check. Smaller guys like you have good reasons to keep wages as low as possible...the multi-billion dollar corps, not so much.

So now I'm small potatoes. Thanks.

You may have a few things backwards.

It is in my favor to pay the abdolute most I can.

I'm speaking about small business in general, not you specifically (I did use you as an example but you get my point). So, it's beneficial for you to pay the most you can but not the blue chips?

Sure. I have to be hell on wheels with service and production and quality.

I run on low margins low overhead. No place to spread out the cost of folks that can't stack boxes right.

I pay good for good people. And it's not mean when someone doesn't make the grade to justify their pay. It's business.

The way I was raised was that you should feel ashamed if you didn't pay a person what they were worth. You should also feel ashamed if you didn't earn your pay. Paying a person less than a living wage so that you can earn a bonus and boost numbers is not something my family would have done. Any person doing any work deserves a living wage.

no one gives a shit about your fucking moralistic upbringing.
and I reckon you talk complete bollocks. it's nonsense. all of it. a fabrication based on keyboard tapping dribbleshits.

if you were so right and true to the people you wouldn't be stacking boxes/stretching underpants/or whatever the fuck you think it is that you do that is so god damned important.

shut the fuck up. seriously.
you're obviously a fucking moron who couldn't run a bath, never mind a merry crew of retard degenerates.

what. a. fucking. idiot.
you're the village idiot here. why can't you realise that?

I've said it before, but it's worth repeating; I don't give a fuck what you think, Tard. Seriously...all of your typing is wasted.
