Workers Share Times Their Employers Tried to Scam Them Out of Benefits

Signing bonuses. Health insurance. Paid time-off. A good job isn't just about the salary, and often benefits are the main draw of a job for prospective employees . That's why it's totally devastating when shady employers use loopholes to scam their workers out of hard-earned bonuses, holidays, and other promised benefits. Redditor u/FlabertoDimmadome was so indignant on behalf of their brother that they turned to r/antiwork to vent about how an Amazon warehouse was trying to cheat their brother…

Entitled Boss Expects Employees to Stay at Work During Unpaid Lunch Break

Employment is pretty simple. An employer is supposed to compensate a worker for their time. When said worker is off the clock, they can do whatever the hell they want with their time. You either pay someone for their time or you dismiss them from their duties. Demanding that people stay at work while they're off the clock? Not to get all hyperbolic, but that lowkey sounds like slavery to me.

Beyoncé Fans Praise Anti-Work Lyrics From Her Latest Single

If you know anything about Beyoncé fans, it's that they are fierce tweeters. As Beyoncé's single BREAK MY SOUL was released last night, the Bey Hive was up praising their queen. The response to the song was generally positive, but there was one aspect that stood out to fans in particular, and that was the anti-work themes of the song. The lyrics resist burnout, saying “Now, I just fell in love, and I just quit my job. I'm gonna find new drive, d*mn, they work me so damn hard. Work by nine then…

Devious Boss Tries to Get Away With Wage Theft, Worker Hits Him With Perfect Response

Some bosses seem to really go out of their way to be complete a-holes. What's the point of cheating an already underpaid employee out of £20? At that point it's not just about money—it's about exploiting your position of power to take advantage of people just because you can, and that's pretty twisted. One redditor recently shared a text exchange between a restaurant owner and his new employee , who had initially messaged him inquiring about missing wages. Keep scrolling to see how the infuriat…

Sexist Boss Denies Raise for Hardworking Female Worker Because 'Men Need It More'

It seems like some bosses would rather ruin the reputation of their company than throw a bone to their hardworking employees . There's no shortage of examples on every disgruntled favorite subreddit r/antiwork, but u/DLS3141 's post is something else. When everyone but OP's wife got a raise at her workplace, her boss used OP's salary as a justification, allegedly saying “you don't need it, unlike the men here.” Hello, human resources?!

Employee Promoted Without a Raise, Cleverly Exploits Loophole To Get Pay Bump Another Way

If you get promoted without a wage increase, is it really a promotion? Or is it just extra work ? Sure, the promotion might come with a better title, but a cool job title doesn't exactly pay tomorrow's bills. When redditor u/InterestedObserver20 was told by their employer that their new promotion didn't come with a pay raise due to budget issues, OP figured out how to use the company's own rules to get a 50% pay bump anyway.

Relatable Posts That Explain the Collective Rage of the Underpaid & Overworked

Boomers of the mainstream media love to accuse millennials of being lazy, spoiled brats who love quitting jobs and spending all their money on Netflix and avocado toast. Boomers always told us that if we worked hard enough, a prosperous and comfortable life was more than possible—it was a promise. Well, turns out that was total bullshit. It's plain to see why, all you have to do is compare inflation and the growth in median rents to the growth in median income over time. In today's economy, "wo…

Boss Freaks at Deli Worker for Not Serving Karen Just Before Closing, Employees Maliciously Comply

This humble redditor's tale of retail hell has it all—the entitled Karen who makes demands minutes before closing and leaves a nasty review when she doesn't get her way. The unreasonable boss who expects the employee to do the work of ten people but chews them out if they log even 15 minutes of overtime. And the triumphant workers who show their boss the meaning of malicious compliance .

Entitled Boss Expects Employee to Run Work Errands During Lunch & Still Have Time to Eat

One day at work, redditor u/unitedstatesofLABIA wasn't feeling super hungry, so they agreed to help their boss with a few errands. Big mistake. It's easy to let these things slide in the moment, but the consequences of letting bosses cross boundaries—like using lunch breaks for work-related errands—can come back to bite you in the long run. That's why we have things like regulation in the first place. Without regulation, exploitation is inevitable.

Horrible Bosses Get Wasted While Handling Firearms at Work, Employees Get Them Fired

Horrible bosses are a dime a dozen, but in certain industries, hiring responsible managers is a matter of life and death. When u/Burnandmurder and their coworkers noticed that a couple of their bosses had a habit of getting wasted on the job, they knew they had to do something about it. In OP's line of work, being sober and attentive is of the utmost importance. At first, OP's coworkers didn't have a plan for how they were going to bust their bosses . They needed proof. But then one day, the bo…

Manager Says Worker Needs Permission to Clock Out, Malicious Compliance Ensues

Since when do shift workers need to wait for permission before leaving once their shift ends? Are you going to pay overtime? No? Okay, bye then! When redditor u/Brooklynisqueerr gave their manager a heads up once their shift had ended, OP was rightfully confused when their manager seemed angry and annoyed. She even made up a new rule on the spot: "Next time you need to wait for a manager to let you go home." Instead of fighting with the boss, OP complied…maliciously.

Entitled Boss Refuses to Let Employee Take Time Off for Honeymoon, Shoots Self in the Foot

Working 40 hours a week for years is nearly impossible without respect and reasonable benefits. Everyone who works deserves a reasonable amount of time off, especially for important life events, like getting married or having a child. When redditor u/WhoSc3w3dDaP00ch requested time off for their honeymoon nearly two months in advance, their deadbeat manager (who was notoriously bad at reading important emails) ignored the request for weeks before finally denying OP's time off. The boss said “re…

CEO Revokes Company's Work-From-Home Option, Everyone Starts Quitting

Companies didn't have to pay for office space and remote workers had more free time and newfound flexibility in their schedules. It was all going great until employers started making their remote workers come in…
