  • Yeah, everyone has time to drop everything, drive to your location, and earn MAYBE $140 with no guarantee of future employment... something, something, damn immigrants.
  • *also, SUPER sweet that you want to pay cash so you can dodge payroll taxes and they're on the hook as contract labor.

    Apparently he's an Amazon reseller.
  • You could have paid to have that load palletized prior to shipment and it would be NBD to have two people unload it, ya dipshiats.

    I don't think this guy pays for a lot of things

    That's $14 cash. Meaning it's under the table. No overtime, no benefits, doesn't count towards unemployment or social security.
    What a deal.
    Also, $14 isn't a living wage. It's not the flex you think it is.

    That would have cost more than 4 temp hires to work 4 hours at $14/hr  The guy is a cheap arsehole
  • "Why oh why, will noone work, back breaking labor, for a pittance anymore? This easy living in a pandemic has made all the serfs lazy!"
  • If you go to the store and an item costs more than you want to pay, you don't get that item.  Why is it any different for labor?

    It seems to me that that person's life is extremely extravagant compared to their nanny, who works 24/7 and only earns $16,000 per year. Even with holidays off that's less than $2 an hour. This brings us back nicely to the subject of exploiting and perpetuating poverty by refusing to offer a living wage.
  • Maybe I'm just spitballin' here, but in rural Texas maybe it sounds a li'l sketchy to offer $14 an hour to package up what most folks are assuming will wind up being weed or coke?
  • As a sidenote: when I was working in warehouses, nightly, I would throw 3000-4000 cases onto trucks, with an average weight of about 20-25lbs. That's, on a slow night, 60,000lbs. Multiple trucks. In a 10 hour shift. One guy. And that was taking into account that I had to look in the stacks to find the cases in the first place to build the pallets.

    For multiple guys, this is a nothing job. Heck, with the investment of a pallet jack--which they should have the budget for with the scratch that they put into the roller belt--two guys can handle a truck like that in an hour. Easy. And get everything onto shelves and organized.

    Slackers.

    Mind you, I WAS paid a bit more than $14/hr for the service. Get paid by the case, and it motivates you splendidly to get a move on. You'd think that guys who OWN a business would be happy to keep labor down.
  • So, how long until Abbott's executive order giving employers -- sorry, Job-Creating Small Businessheroes, Praise Be Their Name -- the ability to press gang "the idle" into "purposeful toil?"

    Used to unload trucks when I worked at target

    Me and this skinny little 50 yo could unload a truck in under an hour
    Yeah, you need some people working yhe line, but with it all one item you don't need more Thant two at most

    So, yeah, 28 bucks, I'll pass

    /when two people fart in a truck, it creates a voltron of stink, ran off our boss one day

    It's 16k per month for the nanny.
  • That's an impressive ratio.

    The nanny is making $16,000 a month. That's $192,000 annually.
