Treated unfairly at work, what can I do?

Treated unfairly at work, what can I do? Topic: How to write a check with cents examples

Question: I've worked for the same company for 9 years; since I've been in high school. I've never been off of the payroll, but I did take another job in the morning hours, cutting the hours at my current job short. I only did this to receive benefits such as health, dental, vision and 401k. I only did it for 4 months (sep 2007 - Jan 2008) and quit the job with benefits because I was struggling working 13 hours per day, 5 days per week. My company doesn't offer ANY benefits except those required by law. I've climbed the ladder on my own. I became NATIONALLY certified (most of the staff is lazy and only has state certification) and when asked to complete training in an emergency situation to take over the company, I complied, and spent my savings on the required training in order to help save the company. They never reimbursed me or anything, not a penny. Problem 1) After completion of training, I was appointed to my new position as Co-Director/Operator. Two months later, I was given a $1.00 per hour more raise. I had to really really push for that. I pushed for more, but that's all they gave me. At that point, I had been working for the company for 6.5 years. After doing payroll for so long, I can't help but notice that someone who doesn't even have their high school diploma or GED makes 10 cents more per hour than I do. Another staff member makes just as much as me, and another makes $1 more per hour than me, with less training and less certification. It's been 2.5 years and I haven't seen a penny of a raise. I've save the company's *** about 3 dozen times since then, but I guess that doesn't mean anything to them. Problem 2) They make me take a 90 minute lunch break daily because of the schedule. The other director (we have to make sure one of us is on the premises at all times) isn't requiring for herself to take a break. It's because of her schedule that I have to take a 90 minute break (I work 9:30a - 7P, break between 12:30 and 2:00) Problem 3) Whenever I request time off, the other director always ARGUES with me about it and tries to get me to cancel. Example, I have next Monday morning off for a court hearing that is mandatory for me to attend. I told her about it a month ago. NO ONE ELSE WAS ON THE SCHEDULE FOR TIME OFF THAT DAY) Ever since I had written in my PTO, 2 other people, including HER, have written in time off for the same day. She came to me today telling me that I better be back by 2. I told her I didn't know if I would be. It's not up to me how long court takes. I explained to her that I would not be able to leave court early, and if it goes past 2pm, there's nothing I can do. The official request that I made says that I'm not sure when I will be able to return from the courthouse. But today--she told me that's too bad, you're going to have to leave early if it will make you later than 2pm. It's all because her husband had to fly out and she has to pick him up from the airport and another teacher scheduled a doctor appointment during her work hours so she will be gone. Do you think I had an option of when to go to court?? NO--they tell you when to come to court. Problem 4) As a "Co-Director", the work is supposed to be split in half, 50/50. I wouldn't care if 60 or even 70% fell on me every once and a while, but EVERY DAY the work is 90/10 with the 90 on me. And she takes 4 or more vacation weeks per year--I get ONLY one week after NINE years of service because I went part time for 4 months back in 2007. Problem 5) Sometimes I sense what I think it discrimination. Every once and a while we will have an abnormal work load which might require some work over the weekends or late nights. I work at least 40 hours per week and they do NOT pay OT, but they always push ME to do any work they need on weekends. An excuse that they've used before is "you don't have a husband and/or kids to go home and take care of, so we know you have time." They've also used that same excuse as to the reasons why I am a closer at night until 7pm. I'm about sick of getting the short end of every stick and working for FREE because I'm single with no children. Problem 6) The company had to hire on an independent contractor to help with a large project. A project that the prior, corrupted director did not do. As a brand new director, I didn't know anything about it project. They placed the blame on me. They told me that I have the pay the independent contractor. They also threatened to take $200 from every paycheck of mine until the project was finished. They didn't do that but I was still paying $75 per week to the company to pay the independent contractor. Is that even legal??? It was either that, or I lose my job. I love my job, just not the people I work for. And the owners of the business are totally corrupted, too. We don't have an HR person I can talk to. SMAL

Based on your post, you should seriously have your resume out there and be looking for another job. Most of what you describe is just really poor management. However, threatening to take money out of your check and requiring you to pay anything that is a business expense is illegal UNLESS you agreed to it. And that's where you have something that you can legally sink your teeth into. Call the state agency that oversees labor laws in your state. Explain that your company made you agree to take $75 a week out of your check to cover a mistake that is costing them money, and that you had no part of. Explain that they told you that if you didn't comply you would be fired. Then sit back and let them tell you what you need to know in order to recoup the money that is probably yours. And look for another job where you aren't battling crazy rules.

Yolonda Originally Answered: How were diabetics treated before the discovery of insulin?
For millennia, diabetes was a death sentence. The ancient Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, and Chinese all knew of it, and described it in ways like "the flesh melting down into urine." Various "home remedies" were attempted to treat it; for example, in the 1600s, doctors tried giving patients sweet almonds and nettles, among other things. Obviously, they didn't help. It wasn't until 1776 that doctors finally proved that diabetes had something to do with sugar in the urine. And, in 1889, doctors discovered that removing a dog's pancreas would cause it to die of diabetes. So, they were starting to understand the disease, but were still helpless to cure it. By the year 1900, doctors had some idea of what was going on, and prescribed diabetes patients extremely low-calorie starvation diets. This kept them alive a little longer, but they basically got to experience starving to death. So, I guess the short answer to your question is: before insulin, they were certainly treated, but nothing really worked, and they died.
Yolonda Originally Answered: How were diabetics treated before the discovery of insulin?
I'm a 45 year old woman and was recently diagnosed as being a borderline diabetic. My doctor prescribed some medication, but before filling it I decided to do some research on the internet which led me to the methods. After reading this ebook and applying the methods, my scepticism turned to 100% belief. I noticed that my energy levels increased significantly and I felt more rested in the morning, my symptoms started going away. I am very happy to tell you that I have been feeling better than I have felt in years and my doctor informed me that he will be taking me off my prescriptions if I keep this up. I recommend you use the Type 2 Diabetes Destroyer to naturally reverse your diabetes.
