I get paid 19.75 as a material handler at a warehouse, got frustrated with my lazy co workers and this is what my idiot Boss told me.

I don't want to fire them because we need all the help we can get.even though they give 5-10 percent every night, we need bodies here to replenish this warehouse.

After being there for 7 months, I quit after lunch. Drove off and never went back. No 2 weeks notice or anything.

We all get paid the same, 19.75, if they are giving 5-10 percent, who is covering up their other 90 percent? My stupid ass! Every night I have to deal with these lazy bums playing on their phones while my boss does nothing!

I would have no problems if they were paid 5-10 percent of 19.75 but they get the same rate as me and I'm hauling ass every night!!!!!

Yes you guessed the race right! Screw this shit, I don't feel guilty about leaving my work undone and leaving during lunch.

this gets old but i do something like this at current employer.

they made excuses for someone who takes twice as long to tig weld an assembly as i do it basically by implying im cutting corners while everything i built is currently functioning as engineered and has for years. they do this because they like this ass kissing company man and they don't like me. i am paid a bit more and decided if taking twice as long means it's twice as good i'll be sure to screw around a lot more and pad the time to put on a good show.

so many businesses are run by absolute dumbasses now.

Dont feel guilty. I hope you didnt shout/abuse your boss though on the way out. No point burning bridges.

If what you say is real (I dont doubt you), sometimes you need to make drastic points.

Youll be called with a better offer in a week or 2, once the reality sinks in at the warehouse.

It is deeply ingrained in blacks that they can't get ahead no matter what they do.

But if blacks honestly looked around, they would see that this is also true for many whites, even if they have more than blacks.

Frustration is part of the human condition.

Black, white, do a good job anyway.

Increase your skills anyway.

A corporate entity bought out the company i work for. The changes pissed the manager of 20+ years off and made her quit. New manager does not have the temperament for the job. 4 others quit including me and now they do not have the people to keep their accounts. They SHOULD go under because of this but that corporate money will probably float them until they get some new idiots to wprk for them.

In Matthew Chapter 20 is the parable of the workers in the vineyard. Some men worked all day long in the heat of the day. Some worked only half a day, and some worked only one hour, but they all got paid the same amount, a day’s wage. Some got exactly what they agreed to, but others got more.

At least they continued to show up for work, unlike you. Now you just made yourself look less professional than all of them. Always, always, always give 2 weeks notice. I've said for years, you can tell a lot about a person by how they quit. You've now shown your true colors to your ex-boss and convinced him that 1.) your coworkers are better than you, and 2.) that he was correct all along to keep them. Was that your goal? Heck no.

It's called over productivity. Bottom line is you don't belong in a slave job. There has to be a way you can bring in 160 bucks a day without picking up everyone else's slack. Do you live where you can mow lawns and trim? Anything would be better than losing your potential to some dumb slave job.

This. I either work or not. I cant bring myself to slack. Believe me I tried. Have been in same situation as OP last year. Worked in factory in shift with 2 guys on machine. Those two left and they then hired two females for bit lower salary. Anyhow I worked my usual position and covering most of work my female coworkers should Have done.. After all that boss came to me and said I need to put more for company... Worked that shift as usual like nothing happend and then went to office saying my foot wont ever go trough that factory door again. One of better feelings I jad. By the way company got bankrupted Recently... Now I work normal job and cant Believe i even put UP with that shit for so long. Good riddence OP and Good luck with finding nice job.

I volunteered on a farm this summer to learn some skills. The owner only had one worker, a haitian. When I showed up to work for free I ran circles around this dude while he just complained about the heat and texting on his phone. I was offered 80% more than what the haitian was being paid. Eventually the haitian got fired when the owner realized how an employee is supposed to work.

So in the end, who really lost out the most?


That was a perfect opportunity to utilize the conversation with boss as opportunity to negotiate for a raise of some sort.
There is no better evidence to use as leverage than frustration from a lazy co-worker and how it is hindering your work flow and overall moral of wanting to provide efficient work as an employee.

Bosses always default respond with "we can't afford that right now" or "I will think about it, but right now i just need you to blah blah" or similar phrases.

That is when you reply "I believe we can easily work something out right now. My daily work ethic clearly demonstrates the value of having me as an employee is greatly beneficial to fulfilling quotas. otherwise, if you had to rely on __crappy coworker__ it would end up costing you more money and time."

Then the boss will say something like "well, what would make you feel better with working? what type of raise are you thinking?". That is a managerial manipulation tactic, even if they do not realize it. Knowing most employees will reply with a generalized "i don't know."

That is when you say a high ball number so they can negotiate
in the real number you want, "How about $2.50/hour raise".
boss will say something like " haha, what about 50cent"
you say: " i actually think we both would be comfortable with a flat $1/hour raise. What do you say, we have a deal?"

Re: I get paid 19.75 as a material handler at a warehouse, got frustrated with my lazy co workers and this is what my idiot Boss told me
It sucks, but that's the way things are today. I'm a union tradesman and every journeyman on our crew other than the foreman is making the same union scale. Much of our work involves moving heavy material and equipment around but that hundred pound woman is making the same hourly wage as the 250 lb workhorse of a man. I wouldn't consider that fair by any means.

The only good thing is the slugs are usually the first to get smoked when the work starts drying up. Some token women and minorities will stay employed if they have a vagina, city address or dark skin simply because government contracts require a certain percentage of minorities.

For the most part, if you give an honest 8 hours of work a day and bring skills to the table, you'll most likely have no problems working 12 months a year. The slugs usually end up hall bums that have burned bridges with almost every contractor in the local. They'll only work when we're at 100% employment and the only requirement is a pulse and a pair of work boots.

lets see how long these businesses will stay a float...


"well atleast we had bodies in the warehouse" I don't know what happened? I don't know why nothing got done?
It's really too bad we couldn't survive in today's tough economy...

I'll tell you why BOSSMAN !

It's because you hired Tyrone and Shaniqqiwayway...
