More "junk-as-usual" when it comes to browsing the employment ads. A local day salon is looking for a front desk sales associate. They want highly qualified individuals. The pay? $7.95/hour. Fuck that.
The next ad I read was for a local beading store. They job requires some knowledge of beads and has high level responsibilities. The pay? $8/hour. Fuck that.
Unless they want some 18 year old still living at home, those of us "older" folks who are looking for work need to start telling places like this to "fuck off". Stop insulting us. Stop demanding highly qualified, flexible folks who can handle fast-past, high level responsibilities. Stop demanding this crap unless you plan on paying a living wage and some benefits.
