I know employees are often the biggest expense, but if you want customer service, you need employees to be loyal. And for loyalty, they need to be able to afford a place to live, food, clothes, etc. there is a disconnect rn

Today's employers are Yesterday's Slave Drivers. Two faces of one coin!

walk away from the job market and create my own opportunity. loyalty, shmoyalty - it doesnt exist, employers fire at will - most states are employment at will, sorry that's reality. everyone is disposable when it comes to job - just above broke.... I have passive income of $1,000- $3000 a month. let my money work for me and stop trading my time for money for bozos and clowns to your point. y'all can't gripe about the wealthy if they make their money work for them - this is the secret sauce, atm money making machine even when you are sleeping, the money machine keeps making money for you....I may not be rich, not yet, but heck $1,000-$3,000 a month pays bills, I do it all from home too...set my own hours, have my own bathroom, coffee, don't have to deal with traffic, the perks are priceless...work 2-4 hrs daily, my choice....great writeoffs on my expenses, income tax, etc. Its working and now I'm looking to scale so I can start accelerating this- doubling, tripling, quadrupling to 10x it in less than a year, right from home too. What do you think this is worth ? just need to work towards this goal and not j-o-b, it's a new world, new reality

I know what you mean. I have met people who have a masters degree yet the company only wanted to pay them $15 an hour. What a joke!

Employees need to be rewarded for Loyalty and businesses need to understand a person working over 40 hours all the time is not good for their employees and they need to be paid what they are worth for going above and beyond the call of duty to make their bosses happy.

Could not agree with you more Henry. As a 40 year old make with an established background, I'm finding jobs that are paying 35-40K a year. having to take assessment exams and fulfilling their experience requirements. This is a joke, do these employers know that rent, food, utilities and cost of living has more than tripled within the last 5 years? while their wages have stayed the same? how do people live off that?

It's sickening that people who are responsible for the health, safety, and welfare of disabled people make wages that are less than fast food workers. And social service agencies wonder why they can't find people to work for them long term.

The purpose of some job advertisements is to have people turn them down, so the company can justify H1-B immigrants. Of course the H1B folks come in, work a month or two, and then quit, becoming illegal. But then they can work under the table and not pay withholding or social security or medicare taxes. A win for everyone except the American Workers.
