I'm sorry, I can hardly hear you over getting told that I'm overqualified with a bachelor's degree in IT, a CCNA, my A+, my Network+, and my Security+ certificates. It's also difficult to hear you over working two jobs for 12 hours a day to pay off my student debt and still be alive. 100 months of 258 dollars a month til freedom! Oh, right... I forgot I'm entitled!

Why the hell are you getting so pissed off?

Not my fault you entered into a field that is heavily over-saturated with degrees already. Sorry, but you're not that special.

It's funny, because when I worked as a Regional Soft counter for a casino I was making $11.00/hr. I would work anywhere from 10 hour days, to 22 hour shifts. I says shifts on the last part, because I've pulled a 22 hour shift, had time to go home, take a shower, make a sandwich and return to work for another 10 hour shift.

Imo, you're kind showing Toshiro's option B of entitlement. I just moved and now have to work in fast food until I can find another better paying job, but I know I'm not going to be making bank by doing so. Do I feel that I deserve more than $7.50/hr? Well, kind of since I'm working as a closer. Am I going to make more? Unlikely, and if I do get raises, I won't go above $8.50 anytime soon.

Most jobs are mentally and physically draining. Is your job hard? Sure, probably, I wouldn't doubt that it is? Have I worked hard jobs as well? You bet your ass I have. The only difference is that I feel that some aspects of fast food are a bit underpaid. I'm not saying I want $15.00 an hour, but for the shift I'm working, and the bullshit I deal with, I feel like i should make a bit more than I do now. But.. People in hell want ice water, so we all just sit back and hope for an opportunity.

I know that feeling, it doesn't happen all the time but fuck are those fun.

>Imo, you're kind showing Toshiro's option B of entitlement.

If you implying that I am being entitled, I don't see how. We're not getting paid lower than one would think wages for entry level jobs, (like he said in option B,) we're trained technicians dealing with equipment that is at many times worth more than you and I combined (crazy how that works aint it?) For many of us, we really couldn't give that much care about pay, and I would tend to hold that opinion. Theatre is more than a job, more than a career to me - it's a lifestyle that anyone entering that sector of the workforce quickly learns that you are basically deciding to live very modestly for most of your life - unless of course you have a special skill - such as electrician work, welding, rigging etc which gives you an extra boot to swing around.

That being said, I am not dishing on people that work in the fast food industry, I've personally never done it and I am sure the majority do not necessarily enjoy it as the pay is generally low and the experience is not so rewarding. I just get annoyed when people demand hellishly high wages for entry level jobs.

You're absolutely correct and I can offer no argument, only addendum. It's also:

A: Poor choice in majors, there are a ton of majors that are useless. If the only jobs available are teachers, or it's a major that only someone with natural talent will be good at. It's a dud.

B: Entitlement. Too many people believe they are entitled to high pay for entry level positions.

C: No "rolling stock" as it were, of entry level jobs. Too many people are content working an entry level job all their life, and get angry that they don't get the pay they think they deserve for microwaving burgers.

So much fucking this.

There's people out there working at McDonalds and shit demanding $15/hour paychecks and shit when my ass works most of the time 5-6 hours more than the average work hours in the U.S. (of which is around 8.5) as a Theatre Technican, and with all those hours of demanding mental, physical, and emotional work loading in shows, designing/building sets/shows, tearing down shows and then loading in a brand new show within the same hour and some venues still many techs are making averages between $10-$25 depending on your position and level of expertise - and keeping in mind that the industry generally doesn't like people with degrees because most of them end up being burden know it alls that don't have years of experience.

So those people can go fuck themselves.
