    Sounds like OP was not maybe too up to date with what was going on with his employees. I've never had somebody quit that I didn't expect to at some point soon.
    Work life ends at 54??

    I dunno
    That’s a weird stat. Yes. It’s prime employment. And that chart looks way better. So we got that going for us.
    55and over has been hell to change jobs.

    I feel sad seeing a gray hair bagging my groceries or delivering parts. But I guess it beats staying at home listening to your gray hair wife going on and on about nothing.

    And you have no idea about me either. Or Coreshot for that matter. But that didnt stop you from insulting him as a father, and also his kid. Maybe you do take the highroad IRL, but you sure do like to slum it online.

    See ya round.

    This whole thread is lulz.

    Two weeks ain’t much.


    I’ve given two weeks notice and been told gtfo. Apparently I wasn’t needed.
    Also given two weeks and worked my ass off to transition.
    Also given two weeks and got paid for it and told not to work or come to the office.

    Also gotten ass canned with a cardboard box and a security guard watching me gather my personal items.

    Two weeks is a courtesy extended to the employer by the employee when appropriate. Some of you keep acting like itís an obligation or a requirement.

    Oddly, it seems perfectly fine for companies to do the opposite.

    Most professionals will extend this courtesy because they understand the power of relationships in their industry.

    If they donít, itís because they donít give two shits about the relationships and whether it leaves anyone else in a lurch. Most people have to be pushed pretty far in their work environment or have extenuating personal circumstances for this to happen.

    This is not rocket science.

    Almost exclusively when you read/hear about this happening in the real world itís when a manager is abusive or decides to fuck around and find out.

    Lotta ugly in this thread. Iíd counsel my kid to give standard notice too. You donít have to stoop to the level of the shitheads you work for. Hold a higher standard. That still means something.

    What culture? Something super obvious in this thread (and elsewhere in our workplaces) is lack of acknowledgment of management as a hard, teachable skill. Instead we toss a bunch of bullshit around like ďsoft skillsĒ and point to emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is intuiting that you need to talk to your staff like the humans they are, secure commitments and buy in, and understanding what brings them to work and why and what the threats to that are. But none of that is hard or challenging and learning how to do it has almost nothing to do with emotional intelligence, itís just a little outside the box for many. And when itís pointed out that this is a super simple conversation we instead spend 17 pages focused on nonsense like ďcommon courtesyĒ and politeness.

    People donít just disappear except in rare and weird circumstances. OP and many others just werenít paying attention. And the lack of social/work skills of many in this thread defy explanation.

    I agree with all that, unfortunately in my experience a large percentage of managers canít grasp that. The management culture I refer to is the attitude that they, management, are somehow better than the workers and treat them as such.

    In high school I walked out of BK in the middle of a shift when a friend came in and said we had to go to a party.

    The day before, some kid went ankle-deep in the fryolater trying to change out the grease filters. And you had to clean the filters with lye and a hose and that shit splashed all over the place and the only gloves were full of holes. I just said fuckit let's go. Never did hear what happened with the burned kid after they took him to the hospital.

    A while later I got a last check in the mail with a note that said, "Here's the final paycheck for the job you abandoned."

    Iím just trying to teach him courtesy.
    So the boss was stealing from your kid and instead of having your kid demand to be paid what he was owed or heíd go to the labor department/social media you made him keep working for 2 weeks while the boss continued to steal from him. Thatís fucked.

    Only job Iíve walked out on was my part time job at Hechingers while in college. My boss in the electrical department told me I was focusing too much on my thesis and I needed to decide between working there or college. I asked if I heard his demand right, laughed in his face, punched out, and left.

    The boss wasn’t stealing. He wasn’t sharing. Yeah. I said stealing. It is stealing. Tip jars are supposed to go to the line workers.
    When I tip that’s where I expect it to go.

    14 year old making $16 per hour ain’t bad. But tips are for workers. Not the boss. Unless the boss is an asshole. Which he was and is. But I’m trying to teach my boy not to be like him.

    Wage theft is the biggest type theft every year (in dollars) but somehow isnít a criminal offense. Withholding tips is wage theft.

    I imagine the the manager wouldnít have an issue calling the cops if your kid took $20 out of the til every shift, but somehow this is ok with him (and you?).

    Sure. Let’s get all litigious

    But. Where in your employment contract are you given tips?
    He wasn’t the usual server working for four bucks plus tips. He got paid. But every tip for a smile and good service got scoured.
    I know servers can make bank at the right place.
    But wtf about having a shit base pay and hoping and praying you get good tips. It’s a weird economy.
    Flip side is making servers hourly and don’t give a shit if your food is cold
    I’m a 20% guy. Unless you suck. If the back kitchen fucks up I’ll still tip.

    I said nothing about getting litigious, just that itís fucked that the biggest form of theft isnít criminal.

    Tipping economy is also fucked. I survived on tips before, too, so I know how shitty it is. Thereís a growing trend of restaurants keeping tips from online orders or calling them mandatory ďservice feesĒ etc in the small print thatís even worse.

    All of that to say, if your son is literally getting stolen from, he doesnít owe that company anything but a swift fuck you, and Iím shocked as his father you are forcing him to stay there two weeks for ďvaluesĒ. I would want to teach my kid the values of standing up for themselves and not blindly taking shit from the man. Especially in this economy where a hard worker can walk into any store and find a job.

    But I hope it all works out for him.

    Yeah. Other than the angry dumbfree

    I wasn’t saying he should sue. Nor implying you said that.

    My reply was to clarify he was well paid per hour. Not the usual sub wage for servers that depend on tips.

    The whole tip wage is fucked. Slow night? No dough. Good night cha Ching.
    And yet. There is a free market argument that tips are to insure proper service. Maybe it’s Ayn Rand gone wrong. Don’t know.
    I think paying fair wage and no tip makes sense for workers. Maybe I’m a communist.

    the pernicious part of wage theft is itís often below the letigious threshold. If, say, you get $2,000 stolen from you, what are the odds and cost of recovery? Not that that number has personal significance

    How is a tip jar wage “theft”

    It’s not like an underpaid server that expects tip pay on each bill?

    Tips given by a customer are expected to go to staff. Itís illegal for management to keep them regardless of base wages.

    Of course. That’s why I tip jar.
    My boys boss was a douche.

    Apparently I should have told him to quit with no notice.
    Even though he was making good hourly pay.
    Got it.
