Would you work as a scab?

I get it, work is work and when you need to get paid, you do the job, but I'm not sure I would want to work as a scab. A scab is someone who works for a company while its usual workers are out on strike. Saw this article about recruiting scabs and wondering if YOU'D WORK AS A SCAB? #shareyourthoughts in the comments.

You never pay your employer. Look for something else. If it doesn't sound right it probably is. Check with the BBB before wasting your time and energy. There are real jobs out there. I hope you find one soon.

Is there a better reason to stay besides the pay?

A friend of mine reached out for career advice. She’s got an offer with better pay. She notified her current employer and they offered her an equally competitive pay for her to stay. She’s torned about making a decision. It seems easier to stay at the current job because she won’t have to start everything fresh again. But there might be new challenges and room for growth if she decides to make a change.

88If salary is no longer a factor, what would be the reason you’d want to stay at or leave a job?** Coworkers? Responsibilities? Future growth?

Help - I don't know what to do.

A few months ago I got hired at a grocery store as a retail clerk- now I feel the need to say that I don't mind retail itself, even as a first job- but there are several problems. Firstly, I only took the job because I was told I'd be full time. 35+ hours a week. This week, I only work 7.5 hours and on a Saturday. I have only had three, maybe four days where I worked a full eight. (8.5, as lunches aren't paid). Putting that aside, my managers don't seem to care. We'll take meat that has sat out in a car overnight. I've personally returned beef to the meat department, telling them it was shrink because it was sitting out for god knows how long and warm, and watched them place it back on the shelf. I've witnessed the produce manager do the 'cheek test' on warm salad dressing that's supposed to be cold and say it was fine enough to sell again. I live in an open carry state, but the store itself doesn't allow guns in the vicinity and employees are encouraged to tell acting store management about people carrying. As a POC, I feel very uncomfortable around people that carry despite the sign on the store door blatantly saying not to, so I'm often the one to report these situations. Each time I've done so has gone ignored by not one or even two store managers, but THREE. Two assistants and the store manager himself. A department manager often talks to me as though I'm incompetent when something is not 'store new' perfect and when I reported this, a store assistant manager said "Well, have fun!" and then left because their shift was over. It's my first job and there aren't many opportunities in my area and I'm unable to drive to another location because I don't make enough to afford a car. Is there any advice? The store doesn't care and neither do family members. I don't know what else I should do. I don't even care that the store is hurting my mental health at this point. #advice #retail #stressful #help

I had the same thing happen to me. A job offering an interview thru Whatsupapp, and Telegram. The company wanted me to download something to my phone. Now different people keep texting my phone from this same so called employer to interview. A big red flag! I definitely don't trust it and please dont deposit anything into your account. The check could clear and then bounce a few months later and you would owe that back x2. It's sad there are scams to worry about with jobs now. Especially the ones that aren't a well known company. If It seems questionable, don't give any info!
