    Default I Was a Warehouse Wage Slave

    Intreresting Article...

    "Leave your pride and your personal life at the door," the lady at the chamber of commerce says, if I want to last as an online warehouse worker.

    With an hour left in the day, I've already picked 800 items. Despite moving fast enough to get sloppy, my scanner tells me that means I'm fulfilling only 52 percent of my goal.

    I work for a temp staffing company (one of the world's largest) and regularly place people at these positions. Despite her attempts to drive the narrative with her bitching and moaning, I can tell you it's not that bad. So she doesn't like the work, I don't feel sorry for her. There's literally hundreds of people that are happy to take these jobs. Most of them are undereducated. Many of them have been on unemployment for more than a year (or trying to avoid being that person). Many of them are people looking for additional money for the holidays (because why forego gift giving when you can just work a second job to give gifts?).

    She is making $11/hr according to the article. If she is working 10.5 hours a day and is doing it 5 days a week, she's pulling in (before taxes) $646.25.

    Over a year that's $33,605.

    Yeah...what a slave.

    We have become a nation of pussies. Putting in an honest hard days' work is so foreign to many of us that someone making over 30k a year can complain of being a "slave" as if they are sweatshop workers making $.40/hr. I'm waiting for her to write an article about road construction and how much that sucks and how little money you make. I guess when you're working in stifling heat or the freezing cold outside it makes it better?

    Without a doubt, this lady's grandparents put it more work in a few years than she will do in her lifetime, because she doesn't understand how good she has it. Go hungry for a week...you will be ecstatic to be pulling $30k a year.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Lucky bastard... I got stuck with Christie Brinkley back then. It's a wonder I ever survived...
