As I said to Bacon, I would not jump to the conclusion you did about the supervisor. But I did just take note you showed how he "had" to do the work. As I pointed out, the business made him do the work instead of hiring.<quoted text>
As usual there are two sides to every story. This is the side told to you second hand by your sweet little future son-in-law. Little white collar, brown nosing Joe who has probably never had his hands dirty a day in his life. In reality he is the one complaining because he has had to come out of his comfort zone and do some honest work for a change. Key words here "all the over time they wanted" which means not required. When not enough signed up for over time to cover the work little saleried Joe had to put down the coffee cup or risk a pink slip for himself. Other key words, "he HAD to come in". He was not given a choice right?
The argument the republicans keep making is, leave the businesses alone and they will hire. Yet this example shows they will not on all so many occasions.
This example shows me the business is making money and growing, yet will not hire new people. They just work the salaried employees more so they do not have to hire more people.
