Okay, as I said these rants have not been daily, but I’ll try to improve on that okay so lets get at it……
I’m not sure about the intelligence of the average workplace these days ( or at least my workplace ) when it comes to your average worker or in some cases not so average worker.
When a company invests in itself, wouldn’t you think that the first thing a company would do is invest in it’s EMPLOYEES!!
We were talking about the fact that the company I work for does not seem to want to do things like send workers who want to secure their place in their company and also secure their future, by sending them to school for training in areas like IT. My company is adding computers to their system and I was told that they don’t want ” Home Grown ” people to do things like work on the PC systems.
What a bunch of crap! In my company ( at least in my opinion ) I have become a wasted commodity that is only looked upon as being good enough to just do blucollar
( or factory ) work! How narrow minded and unresourceful that type of thinking is, never mind how detrimental that type of thinking becomes to the morale of the factory worker in general.
When I heard this statement, I just wanted to kick the teeth in of the CEO/Owner of this company.
Of course, this is the same person who thinks that giving an employee a quarter ( that’s right, .025 cents ) as a raise is just fine, while he drives around in his Mercedes going vromm vromm!
HEY JACK ASS!!
While your driving around in your Mercedes, I’m struggling to make my Utilities payment, my Mortgage payment, oh and how about being able to buy some GROOOOCERRRRIES!!!!
It’s not that I mind you driving your car, I mind you driving your car while you gas it up off my slave labor!
To any CEO/ Owner of a business that happens to be reading this post, please take note of the following….
A QUARTER, ( .025 CENTS ) IS NOT A RAISE!!
A QUARTER DOESN’T EVEN COVER THE COST OF LIVING!!!
And the other thing is….
THE BEST INVESTMENT YOU CAN MAKE IN YOUR BUSINESS, IS TO INVEST IN YOUR EMPLOYEES FIRST, YOU IDIOTS!!!!
Even if you only see your employees once in a Blue Moon, and you have several different business sites and or locations as my company does….know your workers! Know what they want! See how their MORALE is!! If their MORALE is NON-EXISTENT, you might want to take a look at what you could do to change that!!!
We’re not really asking for alot! Just some consideration for who we are and what we do for you and your company. Thankyou.
And that’s todays rant.
I hope it meets with your approval.
