You have to work. Part-time workers with no paid time off or other benefits are common and acceptable. Why do we work under these conditions? You have to work. Lack of choice. Convenience. We have acquiesced to our corporate overlords every whim. Any attempt to fight for better treatment is shut down. Of course companies give the minimum to their workers. They have margins and shareholders. Wealth must be accumulated! Whatever happened to greed being something to be abhorred? What can be done? Put values ahead of wealth. Such an old trite theme; it really is amazing how history continues to repeat itself.
