Another Way to Steal from Your Employees

I just saw this new article from The Nation about the retail chains exploit workers by making them "managers" so they don't have to be paid overtime. As I've written before, "dollar" stores are notorious for this, but it's also common in fast food and just about every other type of corporate-owned retail.

My blood is at a moderate boil once again.

It's not only retail chains that do this but also big corporations. And then there's the trend toward hiring part-time workers or independent contractors to avoid paying benefits. While an independent contractor could maybe protect him/herself through a negotiated contract regarding salary/wages, part-time workers really have no protections (as I'm learning).
