Bad day

Today, I had my first shift as a server at a restaurant after getting stuck behind an accident and arriving late, apologizing profusely. Apparently no one knew I'd been hired but I was still yelled at for tardiness. They then made me clean a fridge for 4 hours and paid me in pizza. FML

Same thing different taste

Company time

Today, I came in to work early at a restaurant to help out. I stocked, baked pies for the next day, cleaned and set over 50 tables, and vacuumed the entire two stories. When I went to send an order for the first customer of mine, I realized I hadn't even clocked on. Four and half hours of work wasted. FML

I'd like to get paid in pizza any day

Paid in pizza? Are they hiring? Can you put in a good word for me?

Does anyone look up their rights? They can't pay you like that, surely.

You're correct, it is illegal in the United States.

Eat the pizza then hire a lawyer to get your money back. No way to trace the pizza's whereabouts after it goes in your belly and comes out as tiny brown logs out of your ass.

If you're in the U.S. than I believe it's illegal (IANAL) to pay you in pizza. They have to pay you in actual money (cash,check,direct deposit whatever.)
