Employers are taking advantage of this economy!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

So frustrating. I'm trying to find a new job.  I keep seeing these ads, they are a mile long, with a lot of responsibilities, no problem, asking for a degree, again, no problem for me, I have a BS.  Get to the compensation portion, $14.00-$16.00 an hour!  WTF?

Yup. You can live off that wage at least.

Plus the split shift and usually 35 hours a week BS.
As a massage therapist I had companies offer me only $10 an hour or they get 60% compensation and I have to pay for linen services and oil.

Most people can't even pay off their student loans on $14 an hour. You do realize $16 an hour is roughly 30k a year, right?

 why does it matter what she does? the point is there are people who did graduate from college  and would be trilled at 14 a hour some have no job AT ALL

Cool story. What do you do for a living? Did you graduate from college?

Depends on location, the cost of gas and childcare.

It's still a livable wage if you budget.

Oh? Maybe in the Podunk Midwest. A 30k a year job here will barely cover the rent where I'm from.

 Seems to me that $14 or $16 per hour would be welcome if you are searching for a job.

 I don't work, and unfortunately I will never work again, and that stinks because it was my favorite thing to do everyday!
