Good for you! You are your own person and not a slave. Live your life! Enjoy the day. Do something you want to do for once.

Your HR department has ten thousand resumes of people salivating for your job.

They will simply have to choose between the Veteran with the Bronze star and an MBA, or the CPA with a decade of on the job experience...

... to start at minimum wage and no benefits to begin working up to your position.

Jobs are tough to get out there. Don't piss yours away.

Calling in sick is a cowardly way to deal with the stress.

Your boss probably takes you for granted. A clear one-on-one point blank talk with him or her about the stresses you are under -- and your value to the company -- spoken as adult to adult in diplomatic language may earn you some appreciation, and some assistance in clearing your desk.

Some bosses are lazy and task their best, non-complaining workers with all the hard stuff.

The general idea is, if you make the company money you get money, so the more you make the more you earn...it's a simple concept and it's fair.

Except this is not rue, or at the very least, only marginally so. The amount of profit reaped by your corporate overlords compared to how much you are compensated is decidedly one-sided.

as the owner of my businesses, it's my brains, hard work and risk that I take...an employee is only paid what they are worth. If you want to earn more then make yourself more valuable to the company.
With freedom comes responsibility.

Ok, fair statement. I was a small business owner at one time and I agree with what you are saying.

However, that "worth" you speak about is arbitrary. And as far as "my brains, hard work and risk that I take" that too is arbitrary. The person DOING the work is directly responsible for it's completion, not the person TELLING you to do it.

And before we go off on some tangent about how awesome you are as an employer, person, father, and that if everybody just did it like you , please be reminded that it is NOT done how you do it.

Our money system is corrupt and stemming from that comes pretty much all of our current ills. The corporations of today will bleed you for everything you are worth and then sell that blood to someone else.

Re: I just called off work today...
I have a piddly part-time retail job.

The company loves to send memos about how proud they are to be one of "the 500".

I worked, did my best, learned every position in the store from cashier, to stock, to counting their deposits.

Evaluation and raise time arrived. I got a gushing, 5-star evaluation and my raise? 13 cents. Yep.

My efforts now match my pay. It has made no difference.
And, anyway, I'm there for spending money and I don't spend much anyway.

They don't care as long as the job gets done--even shoddily--and there are enough employees in the store to allow the managers to hang out in the office all day.

when i worked an an RN Several years ago

i took care of up to 8 and 9 patients a night

'busted ass'

i had NO medication errors and was a good RN

when raise time came around

i received no raise
the ass manager

just brought up insignificant non sense stuff to correct me for and a reason not to give me a raise for that year

it was pathetic

i was one of the best most conscientious caring rns on that floor

i quit by the end of the year

it was disgusting
