my b/f got a new job today and it was totally deceiving in my eyes. they said avg 14 an hour. well it turns out they take him a hour away on commision only to sell meat out of meat trucks. he was gone 9am-9:30pm and only made 35 bucks. and he wants to go back and try it longer. im so mad cuz he wants to still work there! and i gotta take him on my gas and my gas is low. i say he find his own way and pay his own way there so he can see how much he ISNT making!  does anyone see my side!

I know what you mean! But at least he has a job! I would try to be as supportive as much as you can be. It will get better!

That's a bummer.

I personally would never buy meat from one of those guys who just comes to my door.  I think it's weird.

I wouldn't either....hope he has success looking for something else.

 I had someone come to my door selling meat out of his truck and I thought it was strange. I know it's a tough economy and not many people aren't hiring these days but maybe he could start looking around for something else he'd be interested in while still trying this job?

his job is illegal, they can not JUST pay you commission, there has to be base pay as well.  He has to AT LEAST make minimum wage... Just saying.

Now if his comission EXCEEDED minimum wage for the day he worked then they would not have to pay the base pay but he can not work for less then minimum wage. At least here in California..
