Today, while working at the coffee shop, I had to empty the garbage cans. One of the bags gave way, and all the half-finished cups of coffee spilled all over my uniform. Most customers' orders cost more than I make per hour. FML

That doesn't sound like a very flavorable position you've bean placed into. Try milking your boss for all you're worth, you might get a latte money! Hey, it's worth a shot!

39- Not only did you thread jack the shit out of 2, you also managed to make yourself sound like a complete douche. Well done, you killed two birds with one stone.

You can blame your state and all the electoral college votes they gave to obama, this isn't just a " stage " it's an epidemic and it won't be cured for a long damn time.

Your shop must have a very low budget to be paying employees minimun wage AND still without being able to afford real plastic bags instead of those cheap-ass store brands. Are you working for Mr. Krabbs?

Minimum wage is 7.50 per hour the taxes come out of the total check not out of ur hourly rate.. And a large cup of coffee is about 7$ depending on Wut u get 5$ for a medium so her job must just have really expensive coffee or she just felt like bein a whiner

Actually what 27 is saying is correct. If I make $9/hr and I take my net pay, let's say $280 for 40 hrs after taxes, that comes to $7/hr. Minimum wage is different for every state, it's not $7.50 everywhere.

But they aren't knocking off ur pay per hour they are taking it out with taxes from ur net pay.. Ur still getting paid 7.50 or wutever per hour that doesn't change just because taxes are taken out.. And ya starbucks is expensive don't be stupid it may not be 7$ for a large but I was trying to see how the coffee was more than the girl made per hour.. So either she makes extremely little or the coffee is extremely high.. So let's put this together now

AMAd: taxes are a percentage. Try this on a calculator, (10x.2) + (10x.2)=? Now do 20x .2=? It does not matter when you calculate the tax. Per hour or per the total it is the same.
