Disappointed in OS

Deep River, CT

So you go to a bar, order a $10 drink and you tip the bartender. You order a meal and even if the food is lousey or the service is lousey you tip the waitress.
You go to Bennys you order 20 bags of mulch, some teen aged kid making minimum wage huffs 20 40lb bags into your car and you drive off without a thought. These are OUR town kids working the Bennys the Tractor Supply's the Wal-marts the stores you shop at. You will give a waitress $25.00 to carry 4 plates and 4 drinks but the kid who is huffing 40 bags of seed, mulch, top soil, bikes, grills, lawn furniture, chairs umbrellas bla bla bla gets squat. Shame shame shame. Wake up. These kids are working 2 hours just to buy the gas to get them to a 6 hour shift job. No benifits, they are treated like animals and dumped once it slows down. Help these kids out, they really need it. They will never ever get a raise and even the smallest tip makes their whole day better. Its a badge of honor when a kid walks back into a store and shows his tip off, they come home and its the dirst thing they talk about. Buy the time they pay for gas to get there, lunch and a soda or two, then take out the taxes the kids end up making about $40 for an 8 hour shift. And if you think thats bad, take a look at the 25 year old managers who are making a whole $12 an hour and trying to live. Its no wonder why no one wants to work anymore its a break even deal if your lucky. Tips are good for them and even you giving one. Come on already.
