Thats a good example of the hard facts of running a business. I started for a company at an ok wage, then got tons of over time, gift cards, promotions, raises, bonuses, profit sharing, catered food and more gift cards. Lets not forget all the benefits including a bonus paid to your 401k, 401k matching, insurance for everything.
Then all the extras started to go away, no mo gift cards, no mo catered food, no mo over time, (((no more promiotions with a pay increase
))), no more free insurances for everything, reduce, then no profit sharing, no more 401k bonus, little to no comission, etc, etc, etc.
Hell, I got a raise, then was promoted to day shift, no more shift differential and no more over time. The raise was less than the shift diff, so I was now making less money than working nights without the raise.
Oh well, at least I have a job.
