Hours.

I got a promotion at work. With the promotion, I was giving a handful of classes that need to get done. This isn’t a problem; I love the job. The real issue is the amount of time that it is taking to get all these classes done. I started the classes at 6 pm and I am still doing them now. 

This wouldn’t be a problem if the classes were relevant, but this isn’t the case. The classes are basics that I have been doing for years. The current class that I am doing is about wage and hour. The class is talking about the policies of working and the wages one gets. This class is full of common sense points andI can’t skip anything…

I have spent 45 minutes listening to this woman tell me that I cant make someone work off the clock. This is common sense and shouldn’t be made into a class. But what is crazy are the stories that they put into the class. There are employers out there that actually thinks this is okay. One of the stories was about a manager that deleted 15+ hours of overtime because he didn’t want to pay her. My only question is “where does that even sound right?” 

I could never take someones hours away from them. I couldn’t sleep at night knowing that I had cheated someone. That is why it was crazy to hear an employer say it’s okay to cheat people. This guy was caught and was forced to pay the woman back, but what would have happened if he wasn’t caught? He would have kept doing it, which is sickening. 

It is never okay to take from someone. This manager just wanted to keep more profit, so he took advantage of his workers. I hope he loses his job and is sued for doing so. He might have paid the woman back, but it doesn’t mean that he was right for ever doing it. He should be ashamed of his digital self. 

The class is now over half done, but there is still more to do. I am tired and will probably go to bed after this class. I just wanted to tell you guys about this class and how dumb people can be. 

I want to hear from you, though. Do you think it’s right to change time records? Has it ever happened to you? 

Also, what is the worst class you have ever had to take? Mine is wage and hour! 
Enjoy your night…
