Yup. Share what?My take from this thread so far is LCO pays better than other entry level jobs, and less than others. I think it's more than pay. I think people want flexible hours and be able to call out whenever they want/need to. But not lose any income doing so.
Of course that's aside from LC being seasonal and no room for growth. I did factory work, there was no room for growth there either, but they would dangle a carrot.
The share equitably thing that SAGESOVE mentioned isn't the first time I heard that. That's a concept that doesn't make any sense. I don't work this hard so other's don't have to.
If an employee works super hard for 2+ years for almost no pay, and wants to dump $50k into the company with no promise of getting any of it back for the next 3+ years, then that person is in a position to own part of the company. They have earned the right to have a share in profits disproportionate to their contributions in labor.
Some workers understand that owners have paid their dues. But most do not understand this. They see a guy in his 30s or sometimes younger, not doing the grunt work anymore, and they think he's taking advantage of them.
Owners don't need an employee's sympathy. But it seems like young people might not understand the risk and stress and work it took to make that job of theirs possible.
Do you guys think this is also a result of an economy dominated by huge companies? All we tend to see in the media are big companies, and they keep merging and buying up the smaller ones. Kids hear about those million- and billionaire owners, and they think all jobs/companies work the same way. Regarding riches and profits. (?)
