Ok first to clear things up, This is not an age bashing thing, as I stated in the OP I know lots of young people that work very hard some for minimum
wage mind you.
Where I live and in the surrounding area 18 an hour is very good pay, enough to have a family and live decently. The pay increases here as your time
increases and at a fairly generous rate. On top of our pay scale we on average receive about a dollar cost of living increase every year.
I have temp workers that work for us that make minimum wage that work harder and are more reliable than the people we are hiring, unfortunately most
are unable to get full time jobs with our company due to there past or other reasons. Most of these temps are younger males and females and honestly
it kills me to see them work so hard for nothing.
I'm by no means old I'm 32 and tend to be friendly to eveery one, I have never insulted or berated a co-worker for doing something wrong hell, I
encourage it as it at least shows an attempt to learn and do the job.
As a trainer I tell every new hire the same thing, "I don't care if you F_up, you will learn more doing it wrong then never doing it at all". Most of
us really want the new hires to succeed as we are getting sick and tired of being understaffed and forced into working 12 hour shifts every day and
missing time with our family and friends.
