28 Times People Shamed Employers Online For Making Absurd Requests

It is unfortunately common for bosses to make unreasonable requests to their employees while offering very low pay.

It is no secret that some bosses can be difficult to work with. They may have unreasonable expectations or make ridiculous requests of their employees. Some bosses may feel that they can get away with making unreasonable demands because they are in a position of power, and their employees have little choice but to comply. In other cases, bosses may simply be unaware of the impact that their requests are having on their employees. When employees are asked to do more than they are able to or more than they feel is fair for the pay they are receiving, they may become overwhelmed and feel like they cannot keep up with the workload. This can lead to a range of negative consequences, including decreased productivity, decreased job satisfaction and even physical and mental health problems. These requests can range from the mildly absurd to the downright outrageous. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the most ridiculous requests that employers have made.

Some employers only care about themselves. They exploit their employees by saying that this job is going to give them experience but that’s not the reality. People want experienced employees but they are not ready to pay what they deserve. Employees should learn to stand up for themselves. And, never settle for less. You deserve more than this.
