  •  this kind of crap (0+ / 0-)

    has been going on for many years in low level jobs where employees are considered a drain on profits and not an asset except as a expense of doing business.  The attitude of "I can get anyone to do what you do" especially during a time of increased economic slavery will only get more pronounced.  

    Yeah, and I do not want an abused person preparing my food!

      I am a professional and had the "You should feel lucky to have a job" line thrown at me recently.

        were you negotiating your salary?  I was in accounting at one time and my employer told me I didn't have a family and would just spend a raise on my cats!  He also hit on me...greed knows no bounds.  It is true though that the accounting department is considered a drain on a company's resources.

          salaries in the public sphere, natch. No, it had to do with an alteration of my duties to my disliking.
