    -$40..yes minus $40 and this is not a fluke...
    Business is that bad!

    So today I am going to go up to the owner and ask for more money..and if he will not. I am putting in my notice, or he may just fire me. It sucks because other people in my job (different location) are making $50,000 + a year
    Im at $14,000 now and it really bites.

    Well the parts manager has a -$130!!! Its insane!! The owner didn't show up to hand the checks out like he usually does. SURPRISE!! :rolleyes:

    Err - none of this made any sense to me whatsover!! :confused:

    $50 a year - what is this? - some kind of 3rd World, Nike sweatshop!! ;)
     
  3. It’s amazing that you don’t make more money than that, since you are so obviously versed in the English language:(

    Steve, What the hell are you talking about:confused:

    I think most sweatshops don't charge for your employment. Coming of a job that charges you to work maybe you should submit you resume to one.
