CEO just asked me to order 3 iPhone 13s

20.1k Upvotes

I’m the only IT person for a hospital and the CEO just asked me to order 3 new iPhones. The only thing I thought was odd about the request was the phones because they were so expensive. So I asked who they were for and suggested cheaper models. Turns out they were Christmas gifts for her husband and kids. Must be nice being the highest paid employee and not have to spend a dime on lavish gifts (or worry about the cost of the indefinite phone bills incurred) Sorry for ranting; back to work! 🤬🖕

Email was sent out asking employees to pitch in on buying the owner of the company a 900$ gift for Christmas.

Everyone at my work is going to throw in 40$ but I can't bring myself to spend even a penny on this guy. I mean he hasn't done me any wrong but he's literally a multi millionaire. Should I just spend the 40 dollars? Everyone at work suddenly thinks I'm being a prick when I basically said this guy can kick rocks.

Edit: Just to clear some things up I am a real person. The item they are wanting to buy my boss is a "ZIPLEVEL EZDepth for Excavators - EZD-30". I work at a company in Ohio with a shit ton of boomers. I also make 27.50 an hour. I am 29.

Dock me 15 minutes for being 1 minute late? Well then I don't work until those 15 minutes are up.

5.7k Upvotes

I come in to work every day an hour early(paid OT). A few times I was literally less than a minute late and had 15 minutes docked from my pay. So now I refuse to work if it's not being paid.

Task is going to take me 2 minutes after the home bell? Guess I'm stretching it for 15. Clock in at 5:46? Guess I'll sit and wait til 6.

If you're gonna take my money, I'm gonna take your minutes. Simple as that.

5:01. That's my new nickname.

29.0k Upvotes

So...

My boss and co-worker have decided to give me a nickname! As the title suggests, they call me "5:01", because I leave almost bang on at the end of my day, which starts at 8:00am and ends on 5:00pm.

For context, at this particular establishment, overtime is unpaid. So, for every minute I'm there after 5:00pm, my time is unpaid. Well, as my boss would put it, paid in benefits, which I have not used nor do I plan to, as they're of no use to me. And he absolutely will not change his stance on that.

So, as a result of that particular policy, I make a point of doing almost no overtime. In dire straits to get a job done? Unfortunately, we're not a non-for-profit organisation, and I'm not donating my time, so it falls under the 'not my problem' policy I've established.

And as a result of my stoic approach, they've given me a rather demoralising, and frankly, humiliating awesome new nickname, which I'll be taking in my stride.

And after the last shenanigan of them not being able to pay my wage one week, I'm now looking for alternative employment. Or, maybe nothing at all. I'm not going to take being treated as sub-human just because I refuse to give my time away to make someone else money.

You can call people lazy all you want, but that's just because you've spent your life working, trying to prove to yourself, that you're not, and now you regret it.


Hey everyone.

This absolutely exploded far beyond what I had considered it would. Allow me to add some context to the post.

We're Australian. I do believe there is labour laws against not paying overtime. The benefits I had alluded to, can essentially be summed up as "big discounts on stuff". That's it. While it's inferred that I leave on the dot at 5:01, it's more like 5:10/5:15. Sometimes later. Hence the mild irritation. Call me Mr. 5:10, for Gods sakes. There's very little downtime on the job, so it's hours of solid work. No, I'm not a clock watcher.

I can answer some more tomorrow. You guys are the best. Thank you for listening to, and acknowledging, my rant. :)

EDIT: Grammar. EDIT 1.1: Grammar again.

Recently got unionized and got a 150% wage increase overnight

The IBEW (international brotherhood of electrical workers) recently contracted a deal with my company, I’m 24 and I was making $17.50/hr, turned to $45.00/hr overnight with continuous raises yearly. I work as a vegetation management inspector for a company contracted through PG&E (1,500 employees also received this raise). Fuck the stigma of not discussing wages. Just goes to show that these companies can afford these wages in the first place.

Kellogg has announced they plan to fire and replace all workers who are out on strike and refused their terrible contract offer. It's time to boycott Kellogg in solidarity with our union brothers and sisters.

10.4k Upvotes

I guess they missed the memo where there's a labor shortage and no one is working for garbage wages, because this isn't going to work out the way they think it is.

I think this sub should agree to stand in solidarity with the striking Kellogg workers. Boycott Kellogg products, and refuse to work there without a union or for less than the union was asking.

Edit: there are far better posts than this on the front page that I completely missed, but the more visibility, the better.

Edit 2: adding a source

They just fired my boyfriend an hour ago. Why? It’s an interesting story.

My boyfriend has a seizure disorder and recently had a seizure a couple weeks ago. (After working a 12 hour shift) Since it was a pretty bad one he decided to call out the next day. They said it was fine, but he can’t come back to work until he gets a doctor’s note and gets seen by their clinic. Ok, fine. The earliest his doctor could get him in was December 7th. He texted HR to let them know and they said that was okay. Yesterday we dropped the doctors note off at the clinic. They said he could come in the next day. Which leads us to today. I dropped him off at work and then he texted me that he got fired. When I picked him I asked him why they fired him.

They said that they didn’t know when he was going to be back and that he was gone too long.

  1. They made him get a doctors note. Which took a week.
  2. He told HR when his doctors appointment was, so yes, they knew.
  3. Him being over worked CAUSED his most recent seizure.
  4. FUCK OMAHA STEAKS!!
