Abusive Boss Gets Taste of Her Own Medicine When Worker Quits Without Notice

Horrible bosses are the absolute worst, but many disgruntled employees aren't necessarily in a position to quit their jobs , leaving them stuck in an indefinite 9-5 nightmare. However, when the opportunity to quit does arise, it can feel like the best day of one's life. In a r/MaliciousCompliance post, redditor u/Public_Pressure_4516 explains how their cruel boss seemed to get off on constantly reminding employees that they could get fired at any moment, without notice. When OP finally got the…

Servers Earn More Than Managers Thanks to Big Tips, Boss Responds by Cutting Wages

Tipping is a strange, yet highly normalized custom in American culture. Do you ever stop and wonder about the origins of gratuity in America? The history is pretty damn dark . Nevertheless, tipping workers for their service is deeply embedded into our society and it isn't going away, unless of course, employers start to pay service workers adequately. This r/antiwork post about how a restaurant decided to cut wages because workers were making too much in tips makes us think that's not going to…

Via @hillary.zinks
It's true that the service industry is suffering right now. Nearly every restaurant, cafe, and bar is hiring. While some people have said that it's a result of laziness on the part of workers, we're more inclined to believe that people are starting to get sick of suffering bullshit. TikToker @hillary.zinks is one example of a service worker who wasn't about to allow her employers to treat her like crap. After her sister suffered sudden cardiac arrest that resulted in brain death, Hillary explai…

Underpaid Employees Discover Boss Secretly Opened Credit Cards In Their Names

We see a lot of work horror stories on Reddit - and experience them in real life. I've had several bosses say disgusting things to me (one was, surprisingly, a lawyer) and have suffered from being underpaid and underappreciated for the bulk of my life. And while those plights are pretty awful, they've never straight up committed a crime against me. You'd think a business owner would want to avoid a situation like that, but according to Redditor u/Tronlon, there are, in fact, bosses out there wh…

Tech Worker Sparks Outrage For Having a Fake Job

Is there a significant portion of the workplace who have "fake jobs?" They send a couple of emails, sit around with nothing to do, and only exist to fill a seat? This question has been raised on social media with increasing frequency, as "Day In The Life of A [Blank] Worker" videos on platforms such as TikTok have increased in popularity.

Clueless Guy Demands Coworker Not Say "Hey" To Him In Text Message

Texting etiquette between coworkers is a weird science that nobody has truly mastered. Professionalism is an admirable goal, but act too professional, and you can come off as stiff and unlikeable to your colleagues. Generally, a good rule of thumb is to start as professional as possible and read the room, gauging the vibe of different coworkers. However, not everyone will be satisfied with your communication style, as some people are still firmly in the 1800s regarding workplace etiquette.

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.

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.
