Employer's are abusing state of economy!

Postby Cucumber » Tue Dec 09, 2008 2:44 am

Notice how every single freakin employer is slashing pay and benefits for the employees and using the economy as an excuse! This is totally being abused. :mad:

Healthy companies and industries are cutting benefits and employees pay and are doing it because they say the economy sux even though their company's own business is doing peachy freakin keen!

I saw there's even talk of repealing the minimum wage so people can find work even if it's for $4 or $5 an hour! Gimme a break!

Maybe Dubya really did want this and plan for it to happen because it gives an excuse to roll back workers' pay and rights!
Stop talking crap about him!

Yep now it's suddenly okay to pay your hard working employees peanuts in the name of the greater good they say.

It will take 20 years to undo this damage being done to workers rights. I guess they count on us using credit cards to make up the pay difference and we all know a ponzi scheme like that can only go on for so long.

more and more this bailout is looking like on big financial scam. like u said its a way to rollback pay and rights for workers and screw them.

why is it that when it comes to wall st white collar works they say the problem is the company and not the people. but then when it comes to american auto they say the people are the problem because they're blue collar. how is it that white collar works aren't overrpaid but blue collar workers are.

now we are forced to live on credit cards to have the same standard of living we use to have from income!

A sign of the times. Not only are we getting shortchanged with credit and debt, but workers in all fields of work are being strong-armed by employers.

In California, the studios are also using the desperate economy to strong-arm the SAG union.
