My husband works for his family's company and has for a very long time. I'm a SAHM, used to do web design and still do for friends occasionally. My DH designed their website a long time ago before I started doing it. He is not trained in it and you can imagine it wasn't very... (sorry hubby)... appealing to the eye.
I spent a lot of time redesigning their site, rewriting their content, implemented social media, designed new graphics, SEO etc. I still manage their blog (research and write posts) as well as their social media. I got paid nothing for this, except for love and gratitude from my hubby. His family knew I did "most of the work" (I let them think DH did some of it, but I did it all) and they've never said a word to me. Fine. I really don't care.
But then his aunt starts working for the company (her dad, the founder, is old as dirt - he started the business 50+ years ago and she's never done a damn thing there).You can imagine why she developed an interest in daddy dearest's successful business.
Anyway, her unemployed girlfriend started scooting papers around a desk for a few hours a week... mostly just socializing... and she gets paid.
But I don't even get a thank you?
