It is usually the employee that gets to do the math. It's logical since he or she is the one working and will have to use that money to figure out things financially. But we forget that if someone owns or heads up a company how can such people hire without realizing they are not paying people enough to live on or at least afford the necessities. Aside from doing the job or actual task, I want to know how is it that someone expects a person to work and then not being able to afford anything? I don't think that this is a bold or unorthodox way to do things but there needs to be an understanding as to why people work the hours they work and then go to find their hustle aside from the dance floor. Money does not exactly flow when you have a minimum wage setting of things. Now, before the employer says "Well, that's up to you!" Do people really think that they can run a company without people like myself? I'm not perfect and neither is anyone else, but the one thing I will say is that I'm a real good worker. I won't argue why I am not getting paid what I am worth because I really hope to retire soon. Yes, I want to and will actually do what I enjoy the most. As I continue to go from job to job I will ask that person or employer "Is the salary able to withstand the cost of living?" That question will of course be directed to human resources, and they will then say that, "They have decided to hire somebody else." Am I pricing myself out of the job market by doing this? Has the job market changed so much in that a person is expected to work at least two jobs or one equivalent to 16 hours, not including getting to and from each place of employment; really does not give one much time for sleep and doing other things and chores that need to be done? If so, then I suppose when it comes to enjoyment these places may as well shut down because people who will have to work two jobs will be too tired to go anyplace else. These things are usually not taken into consideration because the employer is normally not under these circumstances. Working two jobs is rough, as a writer it is exhausting to stay up all night and then have to go to a day job. Looking like an unmade bed, tired, dosing off, disheveled, yup all of the signs of someone doing a side hustle. All because my survival is up to me and no one else. Hopefully, one day my efforts and work including all of my learning will enable me to retire. But who knows, one day I may be able to work for myself, and then I can ask myself the same question I would ask an employer.
A job or employment is not everything but it sure makes a difference when you can afford to support and take care of yourself without the help of others or government assistance. I once heard people refer to others as step children or black sheep, but I just took that to mean that if you were not the right 'persuasion' including hair texture then you were considered medium rare and all that there is to gobble up and serve like a Thanksgiving turkey. So yes it is personal because it is usually these types of people that are called upon to serve so to speak. I know we have an epidemic of sorts, but like I said before you really should not expect more of somebody than you would yourself. Having said all of this I don't think that taking your inability to parent, teach, be a guardian or decent employer, physician, lawyer, spouse out on others is going to change or alter whatever problem or situation you are trying to control. Many people have this inability, Nuns and sisters included, if something gets served cold then you know why it is inappropriate to use religion as a sordid way to create injustice to a group of people. I'm still African American and I can't change it and I can't be anything else nor would I want to be because being, White or Spanish or any of those island combos don't mean you so pristine and clean either. You laugh and joke because you say it don't matter those people are still n-----s! S--t, global warming has no discrimination, so there is a place in hell for everybody despite what you look like or imagine yourself to be. I have no ego, but I will say that when it comes to my planet, you do you and I will do me. We can do a truce by you staying off my planet and I will do all I can to keep my distance from yours. My planet is my happiness and the nonsensical way of doing things as we co-exist inspires me to do other things because of the ego's of others, especially when the lack of compunction is involved. On another note, I find people irritating, yes I do. You're correct, in that instance I could never be married or have children in being that way. You're also correct, no man, woman or child is worth me turning myself in to a blob of a duckling for and that includes a job. You're also correct, I don't care what you think of me, personal is a two way street. Now that we are getting along so well, can somebody hire me for that law firm type computer programming job, you know the kind that I can work from home and make a lot of money and drive my Jeep that was not cheap without me scraping for money and kicking the willy bo-bo with pouty people who seem to have enormous trouble with their own world and their enormous ego's that prevent them from accepting reality of what actually is.
I have to say I'm not quite used to this. Work was work and nothing else. I would not say I'm a bad sport and of course when I was much younger I hated to lose. But as I got older I learned to take my losses and have them mean something, I began to do things independently and I enjoyed that. My achievements and progress was all mine and not part of a group. In terms of temp or employee morale people sometimes need to feel part of something in order to do well. I should know by now that this comes from within and even if the games are rigged or there is a conspiracy going on, you have to know that there is an "inclusion" or those who are excluded for one reason or another. That being said I somewhat establish my independence and begin to do things that make it such that I have my own inclusion. Yes, there will always be winners, but I really don't like losing. I like to see the all inclusion thing. To promote good morale, companies should structure games whereby no one walks away empty handed. For example: A company has arranged for bingo time and invited the various departments. There becomes a situation where one department won the most games and there were those company participants that won more that once, while others didn't win anything. Rules are the rules but for good morale sake things should be adjusted. If I were to plan a game time for a company I would do things like this: Nobody leaves empty handed that means when they enter and when they leave. When one person from a group or department wins everybody from that department gets something, of course not what the winner received but part of group/department participation or support of sorts. These are what are referred to as winner support prizes they help with temp, employee participation, because at the rate things are going people will not want to play. Besides, a company or people within should not be compete against each other. Wow, is that how we build healthy relationships? I understand the ambition and competition thing for success, but I just think that games or using games to compete this way may interfere with people being civil or getting along with each other. Why? Because it's using something petty to create the animosity. Competition is healthy, but not when it begins to make people feel excluded or left out. This should be taken into consideration.
People like to refer to others as paranoid. But it's usually when you are of genuine quality, that is one who is expected to handle problems as a result of the warped demands people put upon others. When doing a job, someone will say "Hey, any ordinary person can do it, so I don't need have such and such do this or that." It is an injustice to expect more out of a person than you would expect from yourself. But life is not the fairest so you will have people who don't think anything of putting problems or significant burdens however unnecessary on others to show that life is still unfair or to give preferential opportunity to someone else. As a result of being considered "unique" and the abuse that comes along with it, I mean people want an awful lot for not much at all. Salaries aren't what they used to be and neither are the benefits, one develops a phobia about life. It's one thing to be in demand for almost anything but when people view you as that get over, sucka, sacrifice of a thing well-hey there's a line, there are needs of many! And because of it one may feel as though people always want to use them for that get over, sacrifice, sucka thing. It's really awful to use someone this way. Phobias are not a good thing because they do interfere with things, since abuse is social you tend not to socialize, as a result of the phobia. I am a self proclaimed loner or introvert. But, I am in search of solace regarding my phobia. I need to be around like people and people such as myself. I like the creative way of life, great minds think alike...
