Summary: Just an overall cesspool of blue pill feminism, a woman who takes an entry level job that doesn't even require a college degree in San Francisco and whines about how it doesn't pay enough, and how she deserves to be paid more. Ends up getting fired, and continues to whine about it asking for donations.
I left college, having majored in English literature, with a dream to work in media.
Off to a great start, I see. English Literature, now THERE is a major that has a bounty of high income job prospects waiting. As someone who works in media myself, no matter what, you are starting at the bottom of the barrel making minimum wage at best.
I also desperately needed to leave where I was living — I could get into the details of why, but to sum up: I wanted to die every single day of my life and it took me several years to realize it was because of the environment I was in.
Translation: I lived in a state that wasn't a full blown blue state communist area, I was constantly triggered!!! So she moves to San Francisco! GREAT IDEA! Move to the most expensive metro area in the country. Because living in a socialist hellhole is that important, this way she wont be triggered.
Coming out of college without much more than freelancing and tutoring under my belt, I felt it was fair that I start out working in the customer support section of Yelp/Eat24 before I’d be qualified to transfer to media.
She has never had a real job at the age of 24. Damn. Not even a part time job at Dairy Queen. Nothing. She should be lucky that Yelp/Eat24 was even willing to hire her.
Then, after I had moved and got firmly stuck in this apartment with this debt, I was told I’d have to work in support for an entire year before I would be able to move to a different department.
THE FUCKING HORROR! NO WAY! God forbid they want you to work an entry level job and have you do well at that for a year before moving onto a non-entry level position! No! She is a strong woman, and is ENTITLED to be put in an experienced level position right away! She deserves it, you see!
*Life Advice for you younger ones: Entry level positions for any company are important. Do not blow them off. Why? Because companies don't really use these positions to see how well you can do the said entry level job. They use them to measure your overall worth. They measure how reliable you are, how punctual you are, how professional you are, how hard you are willing to work, how much of a team player you are, how well you listen to instructions, your attitude, and all of that. It's how they determine whether or not you are worthy for greater things.
A whole year answering calls and talking to customers just for the hope that someday I’d be able to make memes and twitter jokes about food. If you follow me on twitter, which you don’t, you’d know that these are things I already do. But that’s neither here nor there. Let’s get back to the situation at hand, shall we?
Because she is good at writing funny tweets, she deserves to be paid 6 figures for that for a living right away without having to prove herself at an entry level position first. If you disagree, you are a capitalist pig shitlord. FEEL THE BERN.
So here I am, 25-years old, balancing all sorts of debt and trying to pave a life for myself that doesn’t involve crying in the bathtub every week. Every single one of my coworkers is struggling. They’re taking side jobs, they’re living at home. One of them started a GoFundMe because she couldn’t pay her rent. She ended up leaving the company and moving east, somewhere the minimum wage could double as a living wage.
Who put a gun to these people's heads and made them work at this place? At least someone had the sense to leave the Bay Area and move to a place where the cost of living is lower. But no, this woman is ENTITLED to be able to live in the Bay Area, because elsewhere she is triggered, and therefore should be ENTITLED to be paid enough to be able to comfortably live there. If you disagree that she should be paid enough to cover rent, food, utilities, cable, clothing, gas, insurance, car payment, eating out regularly, health insurance, entertainment, and vacations, you are a shitlord.
Another guy who got hired, and ultimately let go, was undoubtedly homeless. He brought a big bag with him and stocked up on all those snacks you make sure are on every floor (except on the weekends when the customer support team is working, because we’re what makes Eat24 24-hours, 7 days a week but the team who comes to stock up those snacks in the early hours during my shift are only there Mondays through Fridays, excluding holidays. They get holidays and weekends off! Can you imagine?).
A guy was raiding the snacks for himself and gets fired. The horror. And more valuable, experienced employees get holidays and weekends off? HOW COULD ONE BE SO PRIVILEGED? It's called competition. If you want those days off, how about make yourself more valuable. Work harder.
I haven’t bought groceries since I started this job. Not because I’m lazy, but because I got this ten pound bag of rice before I moved here and my meals at home (including the one I’m having as I write this) consist, by and large, of that. Because I can’t afford to buy groceries. Bread is a luxury to me, even though you’ve got a whole fridge full of it on the 8th floor. But we’re not allowed to take any of that home because it’s for at-work eating. Of which I do a lot. Because 80 percent of my income goes to paying my rent. Isn’t that ironic? Your employee for your food delivery app that you spent $300 million to buy can’t afford to buy food. That’s gotta be a little ironic, right?
You are the dumbass who chose to live in the Bay Area making a minimum wage job. You could work a minimum wage job in the upper midwest and only pay $400 in rent a month, but no, you have to live in the Bay Area. Her choice to live in San Francisco is more important to her than food in her stomach.
Let’s talk about those benefits, though. They’re great. I’ve got vision, dental, the normal health insurance stuff — and as far as I can tell, I don’t have to pay for any of it! Except the copays. $20 to see a doctor or get an eye exam or see a therapist or get medication. Twenty bucks each is pretty neat, if spending twenty dollars didn’t determine whether or not you could afford to get to work the next week.
Man I only wish I had all my health insurance costs covered by my employer. This is a great benefit but she still whines. IT'S NOT ENOUGH! WAHH!!! I am entitled!
Because I haven’t been here very long, but it seems like every week the faces change. Do you think it’s because the pay your company offers is designed to attract young people with no responsibilities, sort of like the CIA? Except these people don’t even throw away their trash, because they still live at home and this is their very first job and they don’t have to take an aptitude test like at the CIA.
Entry level jobs that require no degree tend to have high turnover and not attract the best of the bunch. If you have ever worked a real job before, you'd understand this. It has nothing to do with low pay.
Maybe instead, you can let customers choose a donation amount during checkout and divide those proceeds among your employees who spend more than 60% of their income on rent? The ideal percent is 30%. As I said, I spend 80%. What do you spend 80% of your income on? I hear your net worth is somewhere between $111 million and $222 million. That’s a whole lotta rice.
She suggests turning the company into a charity case. Because that would work out so well for the company from a PR standpoint. Because he is worth over $100 million, he is an evil person.
UPDATE: As of 5:43pm PST, I have been officially let go from the company. This was entirely unplanned (but I guess not completely unexpected?) but any help until I find new employment would be extremely appreciated. My PayPal is xxx, my Venmo is xxx Square Cash is xxx. Thank you so much for helping my story be heard.
She gets fired, rightly so. Since she was only worth $24,000 a year to the company, she was not even a drop in the bucket. But then just asks for more handouts, because you see, she is a strong woman who DESERVES. DESERVE. Women always think they DESERVE just for simply existing. She DESERVES to be able to live in the Bay Area comfortably with all her needs met. The thing is, its never enough. If she made $100,000, she would say she DESERVES $250,000 because she DESERVES an even nicer apartment and car.
I am going to laugh if this stays up. I doubt any company would want to hire her after reading this, it just shows how entitled and whiny she is.
Of course, the comments offer some white knights. Here is one:
“You know, the other day I was browsing Medium, and I saw a girl down on her luck, despairing about a minimum-wage job that does not allow one to actually live.”
“Oh wow, Kris, and what did you do?”
“I kicked her when she was down, obviously. I mansplained until I was blue in the face, rubbed every mistake I guessed she could have made on her stupid face. Then I left, satisfied at a job well done.”
White knight comes in and even uses the word "mansplain". Doesn't get more blue pill than that.
Edit: Found this on another board from a person who knows this woman.
"I, too, write. On the side like 99% of writers. A while back, I pitched an article to a mag, and it was accepted. Their guidelines require a first time freelancer to hook up with a more seasoned freelancer. Ok. So, I was hooked up with her. Except upon researching, she had only ever published the above linked article. But, she was friends with the editor. It was supposed to my story, my tag line. The secondary writer is just supposed to advise with their particular process and help polish. And if agreed upon, share the tag line.
Well, we talked extensively about the article. And it became very apparent to me that she was using me to further her own "career." She cut almost every line of my work, an article about a subject she admittedly knew nothing about. She was living in Louisiana at the time, and name dropped constantly. Like she knows the guy who played Kevin on Supernatural. And she was bffs with the editor. And she was at this party one time where so and so showed up. She was still in school at the time, but very clearly thought she was the best writer the world has ever seen. She intermittently bragged about her life and then complained about being a poor college student.
Also, she is an extreme SJW and complained about how much "white people suck." As you can see, she is white. She ragged on the south and said I seem cool and asked how to I live in "that racist shit hole." Typical CA, liberal, SJW, millenial. I emailed the editor and pulled my article from consideration. I agonized over that as it would have given me some exposure. But, I wanted the exposure to my writing, not to further some self-indulgent, narcissistic nitwit. This thread has made my year. I made the right choice. My name is not attached to anyone who is going down in flames. If I'm going to go down in flames, I want to set the fire myself."
Women get caught up in thinking they deserve simply by existing. They DESERVE a living wage. They DESERVE to live in a progressive tolerant city free from bigotry and hate. They DESERVE to go out with the girlfriends and get trashed and ride the cock carousel having all kinds of cock inserted in them. They DESERVE a high SMV man who will commit and marry them once they hit the wall and exit the cock carousel.
You don't deserve shit. If you want to be paid more, work harder. Make yourself more valuable. It's not your CEOs fault that you get paid what you get paid. Getting paid 6 figures for "tweeting" isn't going to fucking happen.
Just because someone is ultra successful doesn't mean they are obligated to use their resources to pay all their employees a living wage.
If you choose to live in the Bay Area without a high paying job you are a moron. Why live in the most expensive city in the country when you can live elsewhere.
Entry level jobs are not used to measure how well you can do the entry level job, but are used to measure an employee's base level of professionalism, worth, and value.
