Tweet Encouraging People to Discuss Salaries in the Workplace Sparks Debate

Should we discuss our salaries with our coworkers or not? What was once a workplace faux pas is becoming a common topic among colleagues, and a lot of workers have benefited from more transparency. But when @ramblings_and encouraged the workers of Twitter to discuss pay in the workplace, not everyone was on board. Most people shared stories about how they'd gotten raises after bringing up pay discrepancies to HR, but a number of people argued that it's no one's business how much money they make…

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…

Shady Law Firm Tries to Trick Job Applicant Into Doing Free Labor, Gets Brutally Out-Lawyered

There's no shortage of shady employers out there laughing maniacally as they exploit the meek and unassuming. But a law firm attempting to illegally trick a fellow lawyer into doing free work for them? Some people are as audacious as they are stupid.

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.

An article about Beyoncé fans joking about quitting their jobs on twitter because of her new single BREAK MY SOUL

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…

Creepy Interviewer Makes Woman Uncomfortable With Inappropriate Questions, Gets Fired

Job interviews are one of the more nerve-racking and anxiety-inducing things a person can experience. To take an already stressful situation and crank up the discomfort by throwing some sexual harassment into the mix is downright sociopathic. When u/R_Rover_2013 called out her interviewer after he asked a series of highly personal and inappropriate questions, he threw a fit and ended the interview. I guess he thought asking a potential hiree about what kind of guys she likes to date was a total…

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?!

Shady Customer Tries to Cancel Generous Tip When Date Isn't Looking, Server Humiliates Him

When I was a bartender, customers would often rack up huge tabs over several hours, ordering martinis at the busiest moments and shots for everyone at the bar minutes before closing. The most ostentatious customers were usually the ones who would ditch the bar without closing their tabs, and 90% of the time, those cards would decline. It's a risky scam, but people who work in the service industry know better than most that customers can be shockingly audacious. As much as we wish we could expos…

People Discuss Reasons They Don't Want to Go Back to the Office

Working from home rules for many reasons. Many of us (and our employers) adopted the practice out of necessity during the pandemic - it's a good way to keep operations going while still keeping people safe during a very scary time. We never thought that the delight of working in pajamas next to your pet would last this long, and we have grown accustomed to its perks: spending less time and money on commuting, being able to make lunch and coffee at home instead of buying it at overpriced and med…

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.
