why i dont use linkedin but also why i should to support my international capitalist

Does anyone else spend their days off doing not much? And feel bad about it?
On my days off I don't want to rush and try to like jam so many things in. Also I feel like I'm tired from my days of working. It does make me feel bad though, that on my days off I haven't done much. Not being productive eniugh. Criticize by my inner capitalist/#hustlegang nonsense.

Do you know when you're gonna be paid?
I do for my jobs that pay me daily. But for the ones that are suppose to pay every 2 weeks or so, i have no idea. My coworkers talk about the pay days that happen once/2 weeks. I assume they're still in the pay check to pay check situation so they particularly pay attention? I guess i'll try to figure out when i'm suppose to get paid so i can see if my boss is shorting me since someone else here said they were being short changed.

Enraged by how Starbucks Corporate has decided to stymie unionizing attempts, I printed these off to hang on the door of all our local stores. Under the cover of darkness, I’m giving the employees tomorrow morning off. x-post

My workplace is like a ranked league of legends match: some staff toxic af. Any advice? Haven't been told to kys in person in a long time.
cross-posted from: > Specifically management chirping me in staff only log books meant to keep track of shipments. I played a match of LOL today and only then noticed how similar my ingame team and managements chirps are. > > Most of the staff here are excons, so I figure this is some prison culture thing? Boss boss doesn't give a hoot. I'm also not interested in asking authorities for help - NEVER has worked out for me. I can eventually switch jobs, but not rn. > > But people regularly play LOL despite it being so toxic and they don't mute them. I just mute ppl in league but there isn't a mute button irl. How do they mentally do it? It's either I figure out how to cope or have to go for counseling.

Pay stubs are too hard to understand, help me figure out if i'm being underpaid
I've been looking at my 2 pay stubs for a while and called HR and it looks like for both pay stubs i'm only being paid for HALF of the hours that i worked. Otherwise calculating the pay i was hired at vs what i'm being paid, it looks like i'm being paid literally ~40% less. Instead of 41600$ (before taxes) i'm only seeing 26000$ (before taxes) Is my income tax and whatnot suppose to equal ~40%? Canada Also shout out to the boss for trying to have me not sign in on the timesheet once

how to respond to: "if you don't like the job then find a new job"?
Capitalists say this justification to justify the status quo as "voluntary participation"

My iww experience sucked
cross-posted from: > Right wing experience: Walk past a right wing protest literally by coincidence, spoke to the demonstrators just for giggles. They wanted to give me a sign to hold, wanted to network. So I networked with them. They invited me to another few protests which I didn't go to. I had some time and went to 1 of their protests. Afterwards they invited me to a house party and I went to that lol. > > Leftwing experience #1: finally found a leftwing group, Which was rather difficult because my city is right wing. Extremely eager to go out and do praxis. My contact there got in touch with me via email. She didn't want to progress from email to call or anything in person. When I asked about irl Praxis she said they didn't need anybody right now (???). The back and forth emails felt like mostly a waste of time. She'd throw in the occasional low-key insults. Eventually revealed that singular they wanted to spend God knows how long "vetting" me before anything further would happen. This was happening at around the same time I met those right wing activists above. > > That leftwing above wouldn't allow me to network with anyone else in their org, extremely strong gate keeping. Judging from a few things she said, I'd only speak to someone in the same manner as her if I thought they were a murderer on the run. > > Eventually i just gave up. > > Leftwing experience #2: > Different City. Networked with my local >>> IWW <<<. Gave me the union training over zoom. I didn't have money to pay for their dues, but told the organizer to invite me to protests they go to. Long story short, organizer said they wouldn't invite me for any protests unless I put cash on the table. > > In the 20 years I lived in that City, I never saw or heard anything about that IWW Pretty sure they never did anything besides closed door zoom meetings. > > Tldr: the left wingers I met or either incompetent or douchebags. > > It's literally easier and faster to approach women for dating/sex stuff, at least in my experience, than get lefties to do something. in my country. I'm not a Chad or anything either. > > My suggestions: Drop the gatekeeping bs, actually do shot that isn't zoom meetings or reading books, drop the financial requirements. If the right wing icons didn't spend so much time bashing minorities, I might have believed capitalism works.

  1. We’re trying to improving working conditions and pay.

  2. We’re trying to reduce the numbers of hours a person has to work.

  3. We talk about the end of paid work being mandatory for survival.
