But a topic came up about how the Superdome needs people to work concessions during the season. And the thread is tapping into something that I have to laugh at. Apparently small business owners had a lot of their staff choose to sit on unemployment (during a pandemic) and not risk catching COVID-19. But to these smooth brains, this is their big opportunity to gain REVENGE at the fact that they paid less than the government did to do nothing:
There was a pandemic you dumb fuck.I work in the staffing industry. Those that have been loyal in working will get the better opportunities. Those that I have called to work, and say they do not wish to work, will be ignored when they come looking for a job. Work ethic trumps all.
There was a pandemic, you dumb fuck.eah, I had some that left due to medical issues or had family members with health issues. I welcomed them back bc I understood. However, the ones that were physically able to work, that were posting stuff on social media about “Rights being violated” or “freedom this freedom that”, and trying to take a stand. They even bragged about getting unemployment……nope, can’t help you. I already filled your spot with someone else. I tried talking to them before they left about the mask situation. They tried litigation and that didn’t work in their favor, so they went a different route, as did I with able bodies. Now granted by law, I have to take them back, but they are definitely not getting their hours back nor the schedule they used to work. I got one day a week for 4 hours. Take it or leave it. Not trying to be a jerk about it, but I got a business to run, and they sure didn’t go about it the right way.
There was a pandemic, you dumb fuck.Same here, had some employees who were sitting on the couch collecting unemployment while there was plenty of construction jobs to go around. They didn't want to go out in heat. Basically cost me some clients.
Now the jobs are drying up , just when they feel like working.
The jobs left I am giving to the ones who were already working during this round of stimulus.
At least I know they work hard and won't walk off a job because their feelings were hurt.
Anyway, I'm loving this. These guys are obviously shit to work for and they think this is now their big chance to gain the upper hand on the people they've been paying garbage wages to for years.
