UPS Stands for Under Paid Slaves

I like reading all these stories of people working fast food and retail and referring to it with terms such as: hell, bullshit, and really hard work. I like reading about people complaining about hours, managers, co-workers… etc etc. Well, I’ll let you know how it goes down here in the MES-TEX 7519 Hub (Mesquite, [...]

No Easy Feat to be a Nurse

Several years ago a nurse would be able to hold a patients hand and comfort them in their times of struggle. Now, there is no time for that sort of compassion. You are lucky if you get a piss break. Let alone a meal. Sure, they give you meal breaks. [...]

This is the Subway to Work Hell

Making sandwiches was alright despite the stupidity of the customers, but basically I worked at the one subway in New York that the manager decided to stay open until 11PM, and only worked the closing shift, the manager was anal retentive, and gave us lists of 20-40 tasks to do each night, half of which [...]
