I have been a stay-at-home mother for a little over three years. I now have one child in school all day and another child soon to be in pre-school part day. So now is the time to get back into the job market for the right price, right atmosphere, and right schedule.
I feel VERY lucky I am able to be picky and turn down a job if it does not fit the overall best interest of my family. Today I turned down a six month contract job for computer programming because the benefits just didn't make the commute worth it after crunching the numbers.
So back to the drawing board; not a big deal until I discovered something interesting. I think it is safe to assume most people know how Labor Ready works. Labor Ready has helped bust up unions and workers rights for example fair wages and a good healthcare plan. Companies like Labor Ready hire cheaper labor on a short term bases with shady business practices and shady benefits to say the lest. Here is the link of the news story I read about Labor Ready’s business practices: http://www.alternet.org/...
So I am sitting here scanning over the modern day want adds on the internet and I see a job posting for administrative work in payroll for a company. This job post sparks my interest in something I might want to apply for. I start looking at the companies webpage and it strikes me as very odd. Then I remembered the news story about Labor Ready. I pulled up Labor Ready’s website and compared the two. This company for all intent purposes copied Labor Ready’s business and employment practices to a T. Looks almost identical. The only difference is some photos and construction terminology has been replaced with office terminology.
Is office work the next step in the McDonald’s of the temp industry? Scary times and it keeps getting worse.
