You can resign any time you wish. There are plenty of people who are looking for work who can replace you. Many businesses are NOT handing out yearly raises any longer. Consider yourself lucky.

Why is Dunkin Donuts a bad employer ? All the coffee and artery clogging donuts you can eat..

Why is Smoker Friendly a bad place... All the smoking you can do at work and not have to go outside for a smoke break...

Check the Hazmat Area Fenced in on west Main Street in Frankfort, Where remington illegally dumped barrels of Toxic Chemicals. Took them two years to digg the unruptured ones up off ferdula's property. Herkimer County had as many cancer cases as Oneida County with only 33% of their population. Dupont still pays for the sewer treatment of the waste water draining from that contamination.

The Armed Forces is always hiring, but, you have to be a graduate!!!! Looking at some of these posts, this is funny, they are all low paying, uneducated jobs. I worked for Little Falls Lumber when I was a teen. Nothing wrong with a little hard work and extra money to get you by.

You people listed just about every employer in the area. I'm starting to think you just don't want to work. You should be happy you even have a job..... scratch that, you could go on welfare and make more than the average working family does after taxes. And you don't even have to be humiliated anymore because they give them scum bags handy little cards.

I left stewarts making 10 dollars and hour and training to be an auditor. This is a terrible job. Most of the time the regular part time employees are getting the shit end of the deal and doing most of the managers work. You get called in all the time and this job is just terrible. With any minumum wage jobs you want to move up in the company, grow with it and make more money and more responsibility. I am appauled that people would pick on others for having a minimum wage job. It happens educated or not. To get anywhere in life you have to start from the bottom and work your way up. Get over yoursekf we all are not as special as you! But stewarts was terrible and you have to be someones favorite to get anywhere in this company. There are people that have worked there for over ten years and are getting paid 9 dollars an hour. Its sad

You, I'm tired of hearing "You're lucky to have a job at all" Yes I have a job, yes I'm lucky to have it but it's still wrong for our employers to take advantage of us or not letting us they feel we are doing a good job. why should anyone have to settle for less? It's like living with someone who abuses you and saying, "Well, at least I'm not alone" So, if I want to complain that I'm not being paid what I'm worth then I have a right to. Our bosses tell us that there is no money coming, times are hard, etc.
well, times are hard on everyone and if they paid a bit more most of us would not have to take on a second job. So go ahead and make fun of us who need 2 jobs to survive. At least we work and are not taking the easy way out by living off the system.
