Being a temp is similar to working a job where you're the only one in the office. If you happen to not be in one day you have to do the work that you didn't do when you were out. So of course when you're a temp you don't get paid for days off; this includes holidays or sick time or personal days. This means that like being the only one in the office you had best to come into work or you will be affected one way or another. Also, depending on the temp agency not all of them provide benefits. So one can work but if an agency does not want to provide benefits then an assignment ends or they will provide benefits for a small amount of time and then you're on your own(the assignment ends). It's all about money and contribution, when companies have to pay they no longer want you on their payroll especially for things like health insurance, retirement and you know days off. But you have to look at it from the independent standpoint of things. With my salary I can't afford health insurance, so it would be free or next to nothing if I get it through the New York State of Health, and in that instance this all does not bother me since I am into the alternative health vibe and try not to have any real use for health insurance. So why pay for something you don't use except for emergencies? Retirement, I totally get it, why should a job or employer contribute to something that will be used when you are not working? I mean once you're retired you're home or in another state or country somewhere so why should they pay for you being elsewhere but in the office? Yes, it's become obvious that this is something you have to work out yourself. This includes days off including holidays because, you are not working those hours. I do wish that temporary or employment agencies would develop a program, think of developing countries(and they say the USA does not mimic a third world nation), that would allow a worker to set aside money as in a 'Days Off Savings Plan' for days off including holidays and personal days that could be used if a worker needs a day off or wanted to redeem a certain amount of money for the days that they don't get paid for. This would work like any savings plan, but it is deducted from your check in the amount of your choosing each week if you opt into the days off savings plan. As the money adds up and then when the holiday or personal time comes about you can request a portion of that money to be redeemed to you on your next paycheck. This way you're not so down and out when you get paid. The days off savings plan is entirely yours and the money belongs to you and all of the money you set aside will be given to you once an assignment ends or you no longer work for the agency or if you request it. I know, nobody wants to pay and you have to be part of the elite for company types of benefits, but with the days off savings plan, this introduces more choices for those who are usually left solo...
What defines moving forward? Is it getting a job paying more money and enabling one to afford benefits and being able to take care of themselves without relying on someone for rent and food etc.? Or is it that conversation that involves a "higher" paying job whereby one is employed to sacrifice for others(see last years events and clothing). In doing so you don't make much money and the benefits are usually for someone else. The world is made up of this concept and unfortunately has a warped setting in that it regresses society because as you guessed it this is the perfect way to be "uncivil" if you are of the confederate nature since those jobs often involve very, very, very tedious labor and as a result does not accomplish moving forward with regards to a persons success in life. But, it just makes it such that existing as a "higher being" is a way to treat people in life. Now, some things are not done deliberately and some things occur because they are desired to be that way since the equation of people is still not accepted as equal or on par to be civil enough to be around them in comparing salary and wages, benefits. So what does moving forward really mean? Would it be honest to say one is really moving back? Would it be honest to say one is ignorant in their attempts to have one move back? Would it be honest to say one is biased since they deliberately wanted someone to move back? There is caution to those who have biases against them because those that do have a disregard for their lives in that they have oppressed them and cause a certain amount of duress, you may even fear them because they live out of their own stupidity and lack of self worth. Moving forward should be just that as in one should be allowed to live life on their own terms and not be dictated by people who feel that regression is the only way to provide for the masses of people. In terms of doing what you like to do, we can always co-exist. That is a more appropriate term for the way that I live since oppression has become what is regular everyday being and the fact that society has excluded those in many aspects in that this is one of the few choices one has to figure out to make. When moving forward means existing or becoming a "higher being", co-existing becomes a way of life...
Mount Vernon,New York is a town with very little money. Usually that's what happens when you don't have a population of wealthy white collar workers. But, hey it's a town to live in and for the most part it's less expensive than other places in Westchester County. The problem is that the town is in need of garbage trucks and there seems to be a lack of money to buy, rent or lease them. Mount Vernon is not a town that advertises very much and in that instance they may want to offer to advertise a company, brand or product to defray the cost of paying for the much needed garbage trucks. For example: Each new garbage truck could be equipped with an electronic billboard that can be open to the advertiser of the towns choice. Huh? Let's say another wireless competitor comes into town and is looking for customers and has cellphone and cable tv type apps or products to sell. When you don't make a lot of money you are usually looking to save a buck, so they set up shop in the poorer towns to get customers, but without advertising people will not know what they actually have to offer. The wireless competitor needs customers to stay in business and a way to get customers is by advertising. If Mount Vernon had a billboard on their garbage trucks, they could advertise the wireless company and use that money towards paying for the new or slightly used garbage trucks. Revenue is a huge factor for this town and when you don't get money in taxes, donations or fund raisers to keep the town going there has to be a way to pay for things that a city government needs to out of necessity. It should not be seen as illegal because people advertise around town all of the time, as long as the money is appropriated to where it needs to be then there should be no problem. Why hasn't anyone appealed to the state government in terms of grants to fund a vital need for this community? I know there are cutbacks everywhere, but there should be money available to obtain good,decent garbage trucks for a town that is not very large. Who knows, there may be another city in Westchester who has garbage trucks that are still in good condition and they may be willing to donate them, if they are getting new ones. Mount Vernon needs to stop the trash talk and find intuitive ways to collect it!
I suppose one could say that I am thrifty. But, you need to think about what it costs to live and eventually retire. Question? How many times a year or even in a month does someone in the area of benefits come around to everyone and provide information about retirement contributions and how much they could actually earn if they were to save and contribute a certain amount for that month? Gosh, nobody from any job I've ever had has discussed that with me and I have never received any pension benefits from any job. Phony stuff! Yup, I was never part of any traditional IRA, or benefit saving plan of sorts and nope I never got any pension money. S--t out of luck, in that instance. This meant that I would have to do it myself. Think about it, no employer contributions or investment plans that would greatly increase your chances not not having to retire in poverty. I thought to myself because it would cost you money to talk to a financial or investment planner, which meant that this was one of the many things I had to learn how to do, as became one of them. Minimum wage jobs don't pay a lot so there is not a lot of money to go around after certain bills and other expenses are paid. It does not take a wizard to realize that certain things had to be eliminated such as breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks, vacations, entertainment such as movies, or other outings like concerts. That seemed to do the tricks because no life in this joint of a world would mean a possible afterlife in retirement, besides you can't take it with you. So that is the half on things in terms of getting the most out of your money and how I personally approach saving from a minimum wage standpoint. It is also wise to seek a discount or sale for every item you purchase or of course any other place that you can purchase something at a lower price. Don't blow up, because you can't change who you are, try saving up...
