5 Ways Businesses Exploit Their Employees That Will Make You Laugh, Then Cry

What makes a business good if not screwing everyone it comes in contact with? Fed up with dirty tactics employers use to exploit their employees, tumblr users have started adopting the mindset of a businessman, poking fun at the total lack of human decency in every decision it makes. And it doesn’t matter if HR or the law tries to stop it, if there’s a rule, there’s a way around it. Scroll down to check out for yourselves and if you can of more examples, please, write them down in the comments. (Facebook cover image: Wesley Fryer)

A company that pays minimum wage sends a very strong message to those employees: "I'd like to pay you less, but I could go to jail."

In some states, if you're under 21 for the first 90 days you work for a business, they don't have to pay you minimum wage, they can pay you less.

I saw this happen with many companies, being given not enough to claim benefits. Then employees have to work two or more jobs to make a living, and again, no benefits. They also have to run from job to job, and juggle schedules. If you're a single parent, you are screwed. It keeps people poor. These companies are making millions. They could easily afford to care for their employees. And don't companies need loyal employees? They need to be taken to task by the government

Yep, it's usually a full time manager and a bunch of part timers. One reason customer service has gone to hell and I don't blame them.

They forgot this: Law: You have to pay your employees at least minimum wage and provide benefits for anyone working 40 hours or more. Company: Then we will pay them minimum wage, but only if they work less than 30 hours so they will be forced to file for state assistance to be able to feed their families and get medical coverage. That way we get paid by the government two fold when we don't have to pay for medical insurance AND we get a huge tax break.

And "polotics" can't understand why everybody needs 'welfare/, medical assistance' when the unemployment rate is so low.
