Today, I get to stand in the unemployment line for the second time in a year because my company can't pay me. My parents own the company. FML

^Instead of that, you could help them seek financial advice.

Prostitution. Pimps protect you, and you don't have to pay taxes on your earnings.

Sti's the cars? Yea they can be dangerous!

I'm working for my mother's company also. I tried getting a job for over half a year and Mum is the only one who would hire me. Getting a "real job" is easier said than done.

29- I worked for a family owned company that was several hundred thousand dollars in debt with more rolling in daily. Seeking 'financial advice' did absolutely nothing but make things worse for them

Why would you leave then join the company again then?

My Space is probably the least of Rupert Murdoch's worries these days, thanks to his News of the World phone hackers.

Work at McDonalds.. minimum wage but hey, at least you're even getting paid.

Dont work at mcdonalds, the pay isnt worth doing something so demeaning. Source. Worked there for a year

I work at McDonald's :D $8.80/hr woot

Why do people always say work at McDonald's? Why not just say work at a fast food restaurant? Besides, it's not like McDonald's hires everyone who applies there. I worked at McDonald's for over two years, and trust me, we did not hire everyone who applied. Not even half of the people who applied were hired. Yeah, that job sucks, but it's better than not having a job at all.

I work there now. And i have for 2 years. I get $9.25 an hour. XD

19- sucks to be you. I've only worked at McDicks for 10 months and I'm making more than you. $9.54

19 - lucky! I've been at McDonald's for 3 years! :o

I still don't think working at mcdonalds is worth it, I mean yeah it's okay if you are under 18 or in college working to pay tuition, after that it gets a little embarrassing and sad.

Hahaa sucks for all of you, I work at Safeway and starting wage is $11.15, pretty good for a first job, I'd say

True. And once you have mcdonalds on your CV/resume no one wants to employ you. Or so i've found!

I was joking, I don't suggest OP actually go and work at McDonalds. I've never worked there so I can't say what it's like.

32 - I totally agree. Some people I work with are like in their 40's and I guess they have nowhere else to go but I mean it seems like people just don't seem to try hard enough now a days when it comes to getting a job. And 38 - that's dumb. You have to start somewhere and I don't see why working at McDonald's would stop anybody from getting a job in the future.

I work at a supermarket called Coles, not half as demeaning as mcdonalds and I get $14.50 Austrailian dollars an hour!

32 I get where you're coming from but surely being like 20 or 30 and being unemployed is more embarrassing than working at McDonalds and earning at least some wage? Even if you have help from the state I think it would win you respect because it shows you are trying to get by.

My First job was iga, there for 2 years and was making 15/hr when i left, started at 12. Now im at west fraser mill in the planer making over 26/hr for a fraction of the work and dont have to deal with ****** customers....stupid customers where 50% of the reason i got out of there.

Start selling crack, that's where the money is at.

But then you got to buy guns, and once you start selling crack on someone elses territory you got to figure out all the turfs, one you find out the turfs you realize that you could be making more money with protection in a gang, once in the gang, you have to spend money on more guns, tatoos (to ink up your body to show loyalty). And when your gang gets in a gangwar, you have to revenge other gang members. I suggest finding a part time job or work at IKEA

Which is almost the same as before except all guns and tattoos have to be assembled at home.

49 everything you said makes me wanna start sellin crack

Jobs are just falling outa the sky now, huh?

grow a feet, paint yourself and go in the nba

GoW_Chick 14

*Foot And why would they have to paint theirselves? I know what you were going for but it honestly wasn't funny in the least.

I agree with 17. There is nothing funny about painting your green. Facking racist!

GoW_Chick 14

Yeah it's the newest craze, kinda like when girls bedazzle their v-jay... -.- MAKE IT STAWP!!!

Aww don't fret they pay you with their love, and teach you a valuable lesson... Family + money issues = awkward holiday season

i'm sorry but i don't understand your comment :( how can you pay somebody with your love? that sounds uncomfortable and is physically impossible. right?


She does have a point you can't technically pay someone with "love". Unless love means room and board then you can pay someone with love.

I Think OP is looking for money not love from family
