    I can see that spreading. Contract labor has already done so since 2001.

    They would all starve in Oz if they relied on tips.

    That’s the entire idea of unpaid internships and being required to “volunteer” for real jobs in order to get a paying job that got pushed in the early 1990s. The Bible says is’s stealing from the employee.

    The old phrase “You get what you pay for” has never been more true. The shocking stats regarding fast food workers being sick on the job reflects that.

    And of course now only the executives have the holiday dinner party. Years ago they included all employees.

    For all of you that don’t know, most union contracts are written that any increase in the minimum wage is added to their salary, too.

    So that plumber making $35 per hour will see his pay go to $38 an hour the day the minimum wage is raised by $3.

    Got to maintain that wage disparity for union workers, don’t you know.

    Look it up.

    The Christmas parties at the Hilton in Kalamazoo in the late seventies were the best ever….First of all, free beer! What could go wrong there? All kinds of hors d’oevours, mini quiche, chicken wings, meatballs, vegetable platters… Thick prime rib, broccoli spears. baked potato, green beans almondine, cherry cheesecake for desert….dancing, talent show, (Kazoo has a lot of musicians), cash bar, etc. Management were the servers…But you know, it worked. All the petty hassles of the job faded away for a while. We really felt appreciated after all….Modern companies should keep that in mind….So sayeth the Varnes of Ackley, MA Communications…

    I worked for years as an executive, in the hospitality industry, which, like the food & beverage industry, has an extraordinarily high turnover rate, with the average employee lasting no more than six months.
    The last corporation I worked for was the exception to the rule. Our world-wide properties boasted a very high percentage of long-termed employees. Our accident and injury rates were very, very low, and our employee attendance was excellent. Why ?
    We paid our employees a higher rate of pay than they could get in any other resort. We had insurance plans that the average worker could afford. We offered flex hours for certain departments, maternity leave, English classes, CPR training for all employees, and offered scholarships for continuing education.
    Most importantly, we valued our employees and treated them with respect and dignity.

    Of course I worked such parties. There was one by a locally owned clothing store. It was pretty nice…I ask one of the people there if the people that owned the place if were good people to work for…With no hesitation she gave a solid yes, looking me right in the eyes…You can’t buy that. You can’t pay for loyalty. That has to be earned……..

    Gratuity is a slavery system.

    In the Obama collapsing economy, you will see many things change. There is nothing wrong with being a contract employee if you are college educated and have some years of experience. If you have no skills or abilities, you take what you can get. Obamacare will create jobs- 29 hrs/wk, but they still count as jobs.
