Today, I realized the benefits at Burger King are better than at my company. I'm an engineer, have three degrees, speak three languages fluently, and work at a multi-billion dollar company. The guy flipping burgers has better health care and more corporate 401k contributions than I do. FML


I agree, your life sucks (28241) - you deserved it (3556)

Are you stupid? The guy at BK brings home MAYBE 17k a year. I worked full time at Walgreens, and yeah, that's my yearly gross income. I actually got a paycheck of about $1000 a month. Full time.

You make, what, 50k at least? That guy at BK would have to have 30k worth of benefits to even equal what you get.

Get over yourself, OP. You worked hard to get where you are, and believe it or not, you're fairly compensated. If it's so bad being in your job, then why not get a job at BK? Yeah, that's what I thought.

You didn't mention the pay difference. I hope you're making more than the typical Burger King employee. If not, it's your fault for taking the job.
