Truth is though.....I would say we are mostly a group of independent-minded individuals.

Why else would we be doing this, instead of manning a cubicle somewhere and participating in Casual Fridays ("yay, I can wear a sweater vest") and captaining the company BBQ Team?

Re: Employee Days Off


I could care less what the day off is for, as long is I get a few days notice. Being sick (or your dog being sick/injured) is about the only valid reason for short notice.

Correct I'm not a good boss. Never wanted to be a nice boss either. Who's Jenny?

Re: Employee Days Off


What would be the purpose of having an employee in the first place if not to make me money?

There's your problem. You can't hang on to good workers because any hand worth a crap doesn't have to put up with an A-Hole. A good hand will have another (better) job in 15 minutes. And he won't have to put up with a nazi.

I run my ship like a Japanese businessman, Zen style. In Japan business comes first before dog, Mom, girlfriend, buddy, etc... In this country work is at the bottom of the list according to most of the posters (posers) here.

Re: Employee Days Off


I live in the mountains of Colorado. The biggest reason people leave is to move back home, like to Iowa cause they don't like the mountains. Another reason people quit is they don't need to work they are trust funders. 4 of my 8 employees have been with me for over a decade. I've never paid anyone less than $15/hr. They also get paid $0.50/mile to drive from home to job plus hotels, meals, etc... No ones ever quit because the pay wasn't good. I'm moving back to Iowa or it's too cold or too high up are more like the reasons for quitting.

Didn't you just call my country a disrespectful name. It's so bad I don't want to repeat it, because I gave my word I would not use foul language anymore on this site.
