my husband works for a family-owned company, the business was started by a now elderly man who still works there, his son is now the boss, and his son's son is an employee. so basically grandpa, dad, and son. anyway, my husband works 49 hours a week at that job, 9 of which he gets f*cked out of and paid his regular hourly wage, but apparently this is ok in a small family owned business. the son comes in atleast 2 hours late everyday, hungover might i add, or calls off every so many days "sick" and dad doesnt do anything about it. yet my husband gets crucified if he asks to get off a half hour early or so to make it to his daughter's school play. sure, call me bitter. i just dont think this is right. family or not, what is this kind of behavior setting him up for the "real" world? he most likely will not always work there and if he does this at another job he'll be promptly fired after the second or third incident. this guy's not a teenager either, he's in his mid-20's and perfectly capable of learning schedules and responsibilities.
do you believe this is acceptable?
i realize there's nothing i can do about it other than bitch about it. i just would like your thoughts please and thank you!

It is extremely unfair, but unfortunately nepotism is never going to go away. They are definitely not doing this guy any good by letting him conduct himself in this manner, reality will soon hit him in the face once he leaves the family business. Hang in there, maybe one day your hubby can find a better company to work for:)
