[QUOTE]\n[QUOTE="JaR"]\n[QUOTE]\nThe post was later asked to be removed by someone very close to me\nas the above information does tell the "new hires" that they're\nmaking WAY less than what even I was making at sweat shop labor\nstyle. [/QUOTE]\n\nA] Why the heck would you take it down?\n\n2] They are paying people LESS than .75hr to work for them?\n[/QUOTE]\n.75?? Is that what minimum wage is where you are?\n\nThe waitstaff in the restaurants and bars here get .15/hr (because\nthey get tips).\n[/QUOTE]\n\nJust so I clarify myself again, this was retail, not restaurant. 2.15 \nor something very very close to that is what wait-staff and bartenders \ngenerally make in a chain restaurant. I was being paid a retail wage as \nare all other Starbucks partners. "Partners" is they way they refer to \nany employee.
