Teenager posts their working hours on Reddit, sparking discussion on child labor laws

Teen's Insane Work Hours Sparks Discussion About Child Labor Laws

A Utah teenager recently went viral on Reddit for posting their schedule for their part-time job . They are expected to work 32 hours a week, including four 6-hour shifts directly after already going to school for 8 hours. I know there are probably a bunch of angry people reading this and thinking, “that's not very much work! If this teen would hike up their bootstraps, they would be able to work these hours and finish their homework with no issues.” In some cases, they might be right. When I w…

Reddit thread about a crazy boss who rants and raves about employees who have quit to his own employees

Bombastic Boss Has Huge Outburst After Employees Quit His Company

You can tell a lot about a workplace by how upper management speaks about people who have left the company. It's not too difficult to pick up on a boss struggling to maintain employees because of their poor management style. While it's normal to have a few wacko former employees, it's a red flag when every former employee is discussed with derision and disgust. I've only quit jobs a couple of times, but the reaction from management was very different. When I put my two weeks in while working at…

'My review comes up a lot in their interview process': Worker's Glassdoor review causes trouble for previous employer

This employee has learned that a Glassdoor review they wrote when they quit their job has been giving their past-employer grief with hiring. They left their position after experiencing unprofessional treatment from their manager, which they felt necessitated the review being written. This thread was posted to Reddit's r/pettyrevenge subreddit this week by a user who shared their experiences with the popular sub. They posted their topic with the title “Left my old place due to bad management - M…

Worker Quits After Greedy Company Denies Them a Promised Raise, Costs Company a $3 Million Client

There's something to be said here about following through on promises. When this company promised this worker a raise a year ago and then refused to follow through, all they were doing was stacking dominos that were ready to fall. It doesn't take that much effort to follow through on promises so it's hard to imagine what these idiots were thinking here. It doesn't seem unfair to expect a promised raise, especially in light of their contribution to dramatically increased production. Honestly, it…

Employee Quits & Takes Entire Department With Them After CEO Laughs at Criticism About Subpar Salary

What is it with companies that refuse to pay their workers an adequate salary and yet somehow still wonder why their employee turnover rate is absolute garbage? Surely it's not hard to understand that constantly rehiring and training new talent is a waste of time, money, and resources? When one redditor inquired about their company's subpar salary compared to competitors, the CEO literally laughed out loud and told their employees that if they find a better job, they'd better take it. Well that…

Boss Demands Employee to 'Justify' Sick Time, Redditors Respond With Excellent Advice

In a civilized workplace, an employer trusts the word of their employee (you know, the one whose labor makes the company its profits?) when the employee calls in sick. It's that simple. In other, more toxic work environments, bosses have the tendency to interrogate their workers whenever they request a crumb of time off. It's almost as if upper management thinks that they can bully their employees out of being sick. When u/LargeThighMeat received an email from their boss requesting their reason…

Workers Share The Worst Things Terrible Bosses Have Ever Said To Them

Employment can be a real piece of work. Being the underling of your boss can go sour quickly. As anyone in the workforce knows, employers are often more than willing to take advantage of their employees because they think they can get away with it. Horrible bosses believe they can squeeze the life out of their workers and continue doing so because they don't think they will ever quit. Who among us hasn't had a boss who watches our every move, making you terrified of making one error to risk bei…

'Sure, I'll do MY job': Karen boss tries to sabatoge overworked and underpaid employee, they stop doing her job for her

If someone is going out of their way to do your job for you, it would probably pay to be kind and appreciative towards that person. Alas, the types of managers who are putting their subordinates in this position probably also lack the basic people skills necessary to make this realization. The thing is, there are all kinds of clever ways that you can “delegate” your own tasks to subordinate workers; as a manager, I've worked for certain organizations in the past that would dangle the carrot of…

Jerk Boss Fires Only Worker Who Can Operate Special Machine to Cover for Dude Who Keeps Breaking It

Do you ever think about all the infrastructure that holds society together and wonder what Big Industry looks like behind the scenes? Turns out every trade has its idiots who somehow got to run the show and hire their idiot friends and relatives to do dangerous and critical jobs. According to one redditor's lengthy (and captivating) tale of malicious compliance, the energy sector is no exception. I don't know who needs to hear this, but you probably shouldn't fire the only person who knows how…

Entitled Boss Demands Employees 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.
