Don't like it? Don't work there then.

And on another note, how much longer can this Black Friday thing last anyway? I've done most of my Christmas shopping online for years, it's way easier and the only people who can get pissed off about working holidays in that line are the server techs in India. Black Friday is for crazy people, it's like driving on New Years Eve.

Lol! Career... People that work at starbucks are either college students or its their 2nd job. Only store managers have something close to a career and u r talking about less than 1% of starbucks employees.

I've never met someone who's working at minimum wage and making a career of it, but maybe I just don't get out that much.

You must not. I know a few that do it mainly because where they live that is the best option for them.

Seriously make a career of it? No aspirations to move to management, or to take on any additional responsibilities or learn new skills to get them out of the lowest wage possible?

That amazes me.

No COLA adjustments either? You're telling me that people are choosing to spend decades in a position where they never have hope of getting a raise, never have an opportunity to get ahead? Or do they have both, but choose not to take them?

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
