There's no "i" in TEAM but there is one in "unemployment line"

Scenario One:

During an interview, a prospective employer asks the interviewee if they would mind volunteering their time to see if their employment would be a good fit. This volunteer time would be unpaid and to determine employment.

Scenario Two:

A new hire is told that the job requires a commitment of 6 days a week sometimes 7 days with no overtime. If they are unhappy with it, they can find employment elsewhere.

Scenario Three:

An employer tells his employee that payroll was not processed on time therefore the paychecks will be available one day after payroll.

Scenario Four:

An employer requires his employees to meet daily at a designated place to get instructions on the days work and turn in time cards but actual start time of the job does not occur until they are at the jobsite. (sometimes job site can be an additional 90 minutes of drive time)

Scenario Five:

An employer hires a female employee but at a lower rate than she requested. The employer states that it was not in the budget. However, the employer consistently hires male employees at the rate the female employee asked for.

Scenario Six:

An employer promises an employee a certain dollar raise after a probationary period. After that period, the employer renigs and offers a lower compensation; stating that “it wasn’t in the budget.”   

The aforementioned scenarios are actual events that I consider FUCKING BULLSHIT.

Someone needs to be an advocate for the unemployed. Employers are preying on unemployed individuals and taking advantage of them because we all know the economy sucks and finding a decent job is like getting a negative pregnancy test after that one crazy night which you swore you never do except with that one guy at that one place… but I digress. It’s hard enough as it is trying to get a job and competing with millions of other candidates. No one wants to be the “whistle blower”.  Everyone wants to be part of the “Team”. But when people are being taken advantage of, someone needs to be an advocate for them with out someone feeling like they are being a snitch. It’s not fair to not be compensated for your time. It’s not fair to have to beg for your paycheck or to not get paid on the day that is designated as payday. It’s not fair to be the victim of sexism. There are rules and regulations, laws and provisions that are in effect to “protect” the employed. But if no one follows them, and everyone is afraid to say anything for fear of losing their job, what good is it?

Black Ice Avoidance

BLACK ICE AVOIDANCE Winter driving is tough enough without the worry of black ice. Roads covered in snow are challenging, but on most drives we can know what we are dealing with. Black ice, however, is invisible and often appears where it is least expected.
Black ice is not, as the name might suggest, actually black. Although called black, it is its transparency that permits it to blend into the road pavement no matter the type, whether asphalt, concrete or other. It forms when light rain or fog encounters a road surface whose temperature is at or below freezing. Black ice can form suddenly, so it is important to know how to prepare for, detect and handle this type of condition. The big danger behind black ice is that it is very hard to spot. Most people drive right over it, not knowing that it is any different than regular pavement until their vehicle loses traction. IF you were to spot black ice, you would look for very shiny smooth sheets that look like wet, glossy, pavement. Whene…

Trinidad's Letter

Dear Son,
I know you may not know it, but one day this pain you will remember. It's hard for you to understand now but because of it you will be a better man. You will remember all the missed birthdays, all the missed Christmas mornings. You will remember the times you looked at the little boys in the park playing basketball with their dads. And because it hurts now it will propel you to be a good man. I see it in you now. How compassionate you are to others. How friendly you are and always wanting to make sure that everyone gets a turn. For you have known the struggle of life not being fair and in your own little world you try every day to make it better for the next person. Even though the person you have missed the most left you waiting and waiting and waiting. I've seen you process this struggle of balancing sadness and glee; of wanting to be angry and yet yearning so much for just a call. I've seen you shrug it off willing to accept the things you can not change and ye…
