Am I right to be upset about this?
So the highest level human resources manager at the store I work for has spent most of her time since she was hired about a year ago finding ways to reduce peoples wages, fighting managers like me when we try to give deserved merit pay increases to associates, and regularly sending off lists of names to corporate of associates that are now working few enough hours to have their health benefits cut. Of course, SHE personally makes sure their hours are cut just enough so they lose health insurance.
So today I was casually talking to her while I was doing some work in the office and she says to me "I really hope my taxes go down this year it's so hard for me." (she makes over 50K a year) "It's too bad mccain didn't get elected I really liked him. Did you vote for him?"
So I say to her "No I didn't. I guess you did?" to which she responds "Oh no I can't. I'm not a citizen I'm just here on a work visa"
WHAT THE F***??? I already viewed her with disgust, but now it is up to a whole new level. I had no idea she was here on a work visa.
So she comes here on a work visa making 50K a year, spends her days keeping wages down and cutting hours so US citizens barely making it on 7.50/hour lose their health benefits, and then she wants to complain about paying taxes on her 50K income?
I mean I normally don't care too much about rather or not a person has citizenship, but knowing this witch came here on a visa and spends her days screwing US citizens not even making enough to survive pisses me off. What pisses me off even more is that this is a mutli-billion dollar retailer, and they didn't even hire a US citizen to do the dirty work. I'm sure they would say they couldn't find anyone "qualified".
I am literally disgusted.
