Because in my job I make a fair amount of cash. The checks are really nothing more than a bonus.


Wow just wow

There are many jobs in the service industry where this is applicable..

Some waiters make more in tips in three nights then they do in three weeks pay..

Read the terms and conditions of youtube, I did it's a long read and I am not doing your homework for you, and I said it is possible he could be a shill after all that is the only one that got any airtime significantly, the guy looks like he rides both sides of the fence to me... So it isn't that out there. Just my opinion and it looks like you are the one attacking for me stating my opinion, I did not make a attack I simply stated what it Appears to be to My Eyes and Usually I am a very good judge of character. If you don't know me personally you would not know that but plenty people could vouch for that because if I see something a lot of times in people others will say "no no no" then later on they see the person's true traits which I picked out from first glance. But I can't prove it here. Honestly I'd have made an excellent detective cause I am a human lie detector. I am just not interested in police work.

Unfortunately, Protesting isn't a job, there is no screening process for protestors, and personally I think he is a shill for the PTB to make the protestors look bad, according to his youtube account he was easy to find and they probably offered him a nice sum of cash to go there and spew all the crap they see him spew on Youtube. I wouldn't doubt it, I mean after all he has broken every T&C of youtube yet his account isn't banned? Odd that.

Does anybody see an attack in there? REALLY???
Because I am just not seeing it.


ETA:
What I said in that post I have never hardly said about any other person anywhere. Also so it's not me going around saying everyone is disinfo etc etc.

Did ANYONE say there was an 'attack' there? I didn't see one, and didn't read anything to indicate that anyone else here thought you attacked a member.




What I said in that post I have never hardly said about any other person anywhere. Also so it's not me going around saying everyone is disinfo etc etc.

I understand that first sentence to mean you hardly ever call a person a 'disinfo agent'. That second sentence threw me for a loop. I think there may be a breakdown of communication. I understand many people on this site are not native English speakers, and I would really like to understand what you are saying. I'm not being sarcastic at all, I just really didn't quite understand the last sentence. It may very well be me not getting it.

Edit to say; Those three UNDERSTANDS lined up were creepy, but not as creepy as me using the word 4 times in a paragraph!

Sort of doubting he's in the service industry as he's claimed to be making good money. Never know though.

I'm not sure what you consider good money.

You would be surprised what a waiter or bartender makes at a busy high end establishment. It's not unheard of to make up to 300 dollars (sometimes more ) per night.

Maybe that isn't good money to you.. but that adds up to about 6000 after a months work.. not bad for tip money.

What also made me think he might be working in the service industry is often these businesses start having money flow problems that effect the payment of staff.

Seen that happen a few times around here.

But.. I'm not saying he was, just when I read his post..that's the first thing that popped into my head, because I worked in that industry a long time ago.. and I also remember not being in any rush to cash my paycheck.

Anyhow..back on topic..


While I don't think it was very respectful for the young guy to be rude to the old man, it seems the old man wasn't really trying to understand what the protest was about, and being very narrow minded about the solutions.
" Go get a job " ..in this type of economy is only putting salt on the wounds.

I don't blame people who's lives are getting disrupted by the mobs to be a little put out, because they can't run their errands, and get stuff done, etc..but they need to understand many Americans feel this is the only way their voices can be heard .

Wow just wow? I love how you think you can judge me without knowing anything at all about what I do.

So let me help you out. I get a shift pay, not an hourly wage. Not even much of a salary. Because I do make tips, I do not get paid as much as one would think I should by the company. My paycheck after deductions is a whopping $110.00 per week. What I make in cash far exceeds 50% of my income.

If you must know, I work as a DJ in strip clubs. I am a guy who people look at and judge. Just some lowly minimum wage worker type and I rely on people who think that way. If they knew the truth, they wouldnt spend as much money. So how does a guy like me get paid?

My income is a shift pay paid to me by the Company who owns the club I work at. The rest of my money comes in the form of tips from girls who are required to pay me 10% of what they make after paying their fees to work at the club, the absolute minimum they are permitted to tip is $10.00.

So let us take my typical Friday night which is usually around 20-30 girls. That is $200-$300 bare minimum in cash for one nights work. That is also assuming every single girl makes $100 or less which is pretty rare. If these girls made that little money for removing their clothes, they would not do it. Now let us assume I have 20 girls. 10 make $500 and the other 10 make make $100. Well the 10 who made $500 would be tipping me $50 a piece while the other 10 would give me the minimum $10. 50 x 10 = 500. 10 x 10 = 100. That is a grand total of $600 in cash, in my pocket, when I walk out the door. Which comes out to roughly $75.00 per hour.

Believe it or not there is a lot of money to be made in the Service Industry. You would probably be amazed at how much money your average stripper, DJ, Casino employee, or Bartender actually makes. Unfortunately people do not think about that, instead they see us as lowly little workers. The truth is, there have been many years where I grossed more money than one of my family members who spent 6 years in College and works for AIG, and I didnt have to waste time in College or going into debt with school loans to do it.

Very good detective work


In my case, my checks are bouncing because one owner is trying to squeeze out a partner. Last Year my club was bought out by a larger chain under a corporate umbrella. The larger chain bought the majority (over 50%) while the previous owner is still involved but no longer has a say in any day to day operations. At the time of the sale, the business was making about 45k per week. As the economy has suffered, so has business. Right now it's an uphill battle to reach 25k per week.

So what is basically happening is the majority owner is transferring funds daily out of the account. This then causes checks to bounce, lack of funds for vendors, a lack of cash on hand for cash payouts, and it creates an illusion of debt to the minority owner thus causing a situation where the minority owner begins to feel that getting out now and selling his remaining interest would be more beneficial.

It's just your typical game of chess between people who have money and it is the workers who are the pawns.

Looking at the related videos down the side, he's clearly unemployed and still on drugs, and most likely homeless judging by how often he's in NYC.
