I get paid less now that I'm a better worker!!!! hahaha... it's true!
When I started one of my jobs where I get paid by the hour, I would write down my hours. I would write down what I did and how long it took. For this part time job I was getting 10-12 hours per week. Well, it is 3-4 years later, and because I have gotten used to this job, I do it faster and better, so I get LESS hours per week, maybe 8 hours now, which means I get paid LESS!!!!!! This is backwards!!!! Everyone says I should "pad my hours" - write down more time than I actually spend, so it looks like it did 1-2 years ago and I get paid more again. I am doing the same job.|
I imagine there are a lot of jobs out there where people are not geting paid what they're worth, maybe they deserve more, or maybe they deserve less.
My brother would work harder than the other employees on his shift, and when the boss realized he was fast and reliable and didn't goof off, he would give him extra work. So the lazy guys had it even EASIER, and my brother was given more work to do, for the same pay.
I think more jobs should offer a set amount of pay for doing the job. If it takes you too long, that's your penalty for being lazy. If you can do the job in 6 hours instead of 8, great! You can go home early and still get paid the same. This won't work for all jobs, but it would work well for a lot of jobs that are currently unfair, like my brother's. Now he works at night, and his assignment is easy. He can do his job in a few hours, but he must sit there for the rest of the night anyway and read to pass the time. Why can't he go home? He's not a night guard or someone who MUST be there. He should be allowed to do his job and leave!
