My wife never got a job in her major, and retail paid her loans.

    BJs is a wholesale club, like Costco or Sams. A grocer. And while many grocers are open on the holidays, it's half days. But those are next on the chopping block. And the reason it's an issue is because, frankly, these jobs are gonna be all that's left in this country.

    Only the pee ons have to work the holidays in retail. I am no longer a pee on. I make my argue meant for future generations, because I am concerned about more than just myself. Something people from YOUR generation failed epically at, if your over 40.
    Wow, you spend all your time implying you are sticking up for 'the little guy' employee and then you call them 'pee ons?' And are now crowing that you are above them?

    It's 'peon' from the Spanish word for a member of the landless labor class, "a person who does hard or boring work for very little money : a person who is not very important in a society or organization."

    Well for me it should be about right and wrong, or following the Constitution as best as possible.

    Not some butthurt bitterness about 'Them' and 'Us'.

    Yes. Sometimes "the little guy" is wrong.

    Er no. This is why an employer should not take advantage of employees and not follow labor laws and safety procedures.

    How many businesses have you run?

    Sometimes it is cheaper to deal with the lawsuit instead of having an employee steal you blind or destroy your company from the inside out.

    I worked for my father's business all thru high school and college and ended up office manager before moving on to my career. I also did construction, cleaned offices, paid bills, etc etc etc for that business.

    I also worked in the HR dept of a large corp while I was going to night school many years later.

    And you would still keep a dangerous employee on the payroll even though you know he could cause the business to be closed?

    An employee that is a danger to himself, other employees, or customers etc? No, I wouldnt keep them. An employee who I have attempted to take advantage of by demanding they break labor laws or safety laws/procedures? Well, I wouldnt do that to begin with.

    I mean if the employee was unhappy with you for whatever reason and he was capable of creating a rpbolem to cost the business a ton of money or get the business closed.

    A vindictive employee.

    They have to go, period.

    So in other words, you've run none. Thank you.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
