Jobs are what make the world go around. With so many people looking for a way to make money, jobs are one of the few opportunities left. People work jobs all day, every day, and never see any kind of financial reward. Even the people who work the most hours do not earn enough to live the lifestyle they deserve. With these thoughts in mind, it’s easy to understand why people become so frustrated with jobs.
A job, income, job or career, is the role of a human being in society. More specifically, a wage is the wages an employer pays an individual, corporation, business or government for performing a specific task. Most individuals have multiple jobs. A person could start a new job as a teacher, an engineer, a counselor, a waiter, or a housekeeper. Each of these jobs would earn a wage. However, if you quit any of these jobs to take up a more physically demanding job that pays more, you would be losing your earnings from your previous job.
Some of the worst jobs in the United States include taxi drivers and warehouse workers. Taxi drivers make about forty dollars per hour. This is the lowest pay rate among all occupations. On the other hand, warehouse workers earn between fifty and one-hundred dollars per hour.
Both taxi drivers and warehouse workers will require the same physical activities to perform their tasks. Therefore, their pay rate is also similar. The problem arises when companies such as Walmart, McDonald’s, and other major corporations realize how many workers actually make. These companies, which employ hundreds of thousands of people, are eager to replace those who lose their jobs with cheaper labor. This means that they will hire recent college graduates who are trained to perform the same physical tasks as their older co-workers. If you are one of these young workers who have recently been hired for these Walmart, McDonald’s, or other company jobs and now see your pay rate decrease, you should know that your company is engaging in one of the most vicious practices of the 21st century: reducing pay while increasing productivity.
Increasing company profits by decreasing pay is the most nonprofessional and unprofessional act, a corporation could engage in. You may feel lucky that your employer does not cut your hourly pay to nothing, but you should know that many workers have lost their jobs because of this practice. Furthermore, this type of practice is illegal in the United States. Furthermore, if you are already a professional nonprofessional worker, you should fight for higher pay, so that your hourly rate matches that of seasoned professionals.
If you want to increase your salary, you should know what all the jobs are and how to find them. Workers must become skilled and educated so that they do not lose jobs due to economic conditions. The median annual pay for jobs in the United States is $37, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
