    you've been wage robbed.  Trust me, it's not an NYC exclusive.  God forbid you get hired in any kind of management position.  I was working 80-90 hours a week, even though I was specifically hired at $11 an hour and only grossed $440 per week AFTER the fact I'd left my previous job.  I was told $11 per hour to steal me away for a job paying $9.75 plus overtime of which I'd been working plenty (near Buffalo, it was a nearly livable wage at the time and a nice wage with massive overtime).  So, after a few paychecks and the owner explicitly saying I'd be making $11 per, he then tells me it was salary.  I took it to the labor board who straight up said, "Too bad, you're a manager" even though I'd left a management job that paid me overtime.  It's all fair, it'll trickle down to me eventually.  Thanks Ronny, you senile prick, I'm almost glad you died senile, it's almost like you died alone.  That seems kinda fair.

    I'm damaged and I like it, it made me what I am! BTW, my avatar is as stollen as my father's retirement fund, the old man died almost penniless. Bankers don't go to prison for breaking our laws, they buy bigger yachts.
