Your employers are criminals, dude. Wow.
Trust me, it's really NOT just his. Or the UK.
And really, really, not a minority either.
ETA - Well that sounds condescending as fuck. Not the intention/tone.
I happen to live in the asshole of the West coast, but everyone I've worked for has turned out to be either criminally negligent (drivers well known for checking their phones while driving vans full of people resulting in speeding through red lights and many episodes of high speed near misses yet management continues to let them drive, repeatedly returning from group field trips without individuals who have severe mental retardation and are essentially small children in adult bodies), requiring outright fraud as part of their verbal policy, and all of them engaged in wage theft (requiring work related duties to be done off the clock, not fixing "errors" on their timesheets but only if it screws the employee).
I just walked out of my last job after accruing enough savings to get me by while I look for legit work. I knew it was going to be bad here but I wasn't prepared for how prevalent the nepotism, incompetence, and casual fraud actually would be. And that's just the clearly illegal behavior, which is just the tip of the shitberg that I've personally witnessed. I know they all
aren't this way, but holy hell is it hard to find an even halfway decent place to work. You wouldn't know this is the West coast from visiting here, you'd be positive you're in a depressed Midwest shithole full of shady scumbags that just happens to have an astonishing number of bike lanes that no one uses.
