So I wanted to see if I could get paid in something other than FDR notes. well - it didnt work out....
I put on a "äpply for Job", I sent them my resume a week or so ago - they called today and asked why I stated I would work for $5.00 a day - I said well how much are you paying and she said 18.00$ per hour - I then said ok, 18 silver dollars an hour and the phone went silent for a few seconds and no we pay in U.S. Dollars and I said thats acceptable as long as they are silver. and she said no it will be a check and we pay every two weeks and I said is that in Silver ? and she said that she didn't think so. and I said - I will work for 5.00$ a day in Silver and she said thank you, I will keep your resume on file. Since when is money something you shouldn't ask for... ?

pf thats way too far, but for $5.00 of silver every hour you'd have a car in no time

That doesn't surprise me...
i went into a bank with ten 1 ounce gold coins as a deposit to get a loan and they flatly refused to accept it...WTF

You didn;t do that in Bank of America - I know because that is how I got a loan, they held my gold as collateral for a couple of months.
and as far as that goes - any pawn shop would gladly give you 90 day loan upto like 80% of value.

I occassionally hire people. I would not employ you having had such a discussion. If you want a job, rethink your tactics.

Maybe im missing the point but why not just buy the silver with the money you get paid if thats what you want?

Sounds like she was confused and may have mistaken you for a wacky conspiracy theorist and filed your resume in the circular file.

;being a min wage worker, and not able to find work in 2 years, I'd KILL for that pay.

I think you failed the IQ test. If you want silver so badly buy it from a dealer and you'll be miles in front.

Take the job.
Send me the paycheck, and i'll pay you $6.00 a day in silver.
Is gold ok as well or no?

Lets see ABOUT 526.60 on a 40 hour week (after tax) - $30 for silver (on a 5 day week) and that leaves me with 496.60 a week. And the only work i have to do is buy silver? TAKE THIS DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You know....you could have converted your paycheck each week for silver and would have had a job right now....


Just sayin'

This all started after I spent like 30 mins. answering their pre-screening questions and right towards the end I found out they were like 70 miles away from me. so I added the 5$. a day sort of as an after thought - I cant take a job thats 140 miles round trip - especially during peak traffic - 50$ I might consider it - it's not worth it, 880/101 are like parking lots during those times I would be traveling.... been there and done that and 3hours just to work 8 is no picnic.
the convert the pay check - yea, you know the guys who call you up trying to sell you silver and gold -- yea, they get a paycheck instead.... ask them why they dont accept gold and silver -- its hard to spend and hard to part with once you got it.

We hire people out of "walmart" kinda stores and give them 18$ and we cant find the hands to fill out possitions and it's mostly computer work. 12hour days. 8 day weeks, 6 day weekends and we're understaffed right now to the point that it's turning into a pain in the ass. lol


So more of less, we're taking people off the street, giving them 18$ an hour and teaching them how to network and troubleshoot systems over a worldwide network.
