Monday is my last day lololololol TAKE THAT CRAP JOB
But now how will you get shiny coins?
now go get an awesome job!
Congrats Jobs are a lie!
My boyfriend will support us until we move home in August. Then I'll start working for his sister in a shoe store making 10$ an hour to pester people about shoes <3
american wages are a joke, but countered by your cheap cheap prices
Yeah not really. When you live in the city and you make minimum wage you're likely to live in a box unless you rent a place with 3+ people. My boyfriend makes 14$ an hour and pulls 50 hour weeks and some months we can barely scrape by. Trust me, our prices aren't cheap in the least bit.
I'm only able to quit because my income contribution basically just paid for my petrol to and from work, and whatever extra crap we wanted. We're moving in a couple of months as well so we just decided I would quit now instead of later because we'll both be happier this way.
Yeah, living expenses have slowly been on the rise for a decade while wages have stayed exactly where they were ten years ago. I actually have less "fun" money, money to spend on nonessential items, vacations and whatnot, than I did twenty years ago, though my wages are much, much better now. If someone was to tell me twenty years ago that I'd be making what I do right now, but not have extra money to enjoy life more... I'd have told them they're nuts.
If someone would have told me that my boyfriend was going to make $4 more an hour than he was in Lincoln, but our life would be harder, I'd tell them they were nuts as well. We were actually really well off when we lived in our home town thanks to my boyfriend, up here we po folk no matter what we do
Indeed. Cost of living makes a bigger impact than most people realize. There are points in life where you run into a financial wall. Once you get past that wall, you hit a new level of financial benefits and hardships, but then there is another wall to defeat to get to the next level, and so on. Life is like an RPG, but there's no manual and no strategy guide to help you get through the challenging parts.
Just as the old adage says, "Sometimes you take two steps forward, and one step back." You just need to keep moving forward.
It sounds similar down there to what it's like up here. Living in the city is really expensive!!!!! I hope your move and new job go well Liv
Damn. Maybe we shouldn't make that move after all. It's more expensive where we want to go even thought the quality of life would be better. We'd have more things to do and have more things to be stimulated by than we do here. It's certainly food for thought. Good luck with the move back, Liv.
Thanks guys, the move isn't happening until August, but I"m sure it'll be a pain in the ass, as per the usual
They can take my shiny coins, but they'll never take MY FREEDOMMMMMMMMM!!!!!
Or my reptiles. Don't touch my reptiles or I'll cut you!!!
lets see, (trying to remember my last weekly costing)
our Juniors (15-16 y/o) receive $11 an hr, with casual loading of 0.16. (total 12.76 an hr) on weekends the receive 1.5x 12 for the saturday ($18/hr) and 2x $12 an hr for sunday ($24/hr)
our casuals, Starting at 17, receive between $15-$21 an hr, age dependant. again they receive .16 casual loading for a weekday and 1.5x pay for a saturday and 2x pay on sunday.
Casuals also receive 5% commission on profit with certain sales, depending on upselling.
Part time sales people receive $17/hr but also accrue sick days (not certain how many) as well as paid holidays at half the rate of full time sales people. part timers do not receive loading, though they receive 1.5x pay on saturday and 2xpay on sunday
Part time employees also receive 5% commission on profit from certain sales, depending on upselling
Full time sales people recieve $15/hr and accrue 1 sick day per 4 weeks employment. full timers also gain paid holidays at a rate of 6 weeks per year. full timers do not receive loading, though they receive 1.5x pay on saturday, and 2xpay on sunday.
Full time sales people are paid commission at a rate of 10% of profit on certain sales, dependant on upselling.
management receive salary. you don't get an hourly wage, you get the same every week, you get 2 sick days per 6 weeks employment and 8 weeks paid holidays per year (dependant on original negotiation)
management does not receive commission, and as has happened with me, may be required to work 7 days a week with 7am-10pm shifts on late night shopping days if required.
That's basically my life motto
