Can you help since I am in Colorado.
This is my case:
I was hired in 2006 as a salaried
employee for 40 hrs.
Most of the days’ due employees calling in sick, had to work more than 10 or more hours.
No overtime was paid for the last ten years.
Now they are trying to reduce the salary (wage
cut) and making it 40 hrs. X amount 10 hours’ make believe overtime Xxxx amount equivalent making it the original 40 hour salaried wages earned so far, just to circumvent the government regulation that all salaried employees be paid $53,000/
The Circle K is treating us like handyman, requiring to paint, power wash toxic materials, pulling weeds etc. for the same wages saying that the CO has no money.
Circle k is violating the OSHA
regulations since there is only one employee at a time for their 8 hour shift. Under the new expectation a to be implemented, the SM’s are allowed to speak on the phone one minute, I have peed in my pants during working hours, passed stool in my pants had to call my daughter to bring in fresh pants. Sometime I have to use the Rest room leaving the store to a friendly customer. So is in the case of CSR’s who have peed in their work cloths during their 8 hour “no break shifts” Is this a violation of the OSHA?
Why do I have to work 10 hours each day and comeback to the store and work another 8 hours “free” when a employee is sick or did not come? Just by calling them the make believe owner? Entrepreneur? Responsibility of a Store Manager? trying to make them hourly?
The new CEO of Circle k said in one of her motivating letters say that “the efficiency of the worker will go down after 8 hours. “
Not me, not yet anyway.
They promise overtime after 50 hours but no one can go more than 50 hours, since they do not allow CSR’s to overtime. And counsel the SM if CSR go overtime? Same thing will happen when SM go make believe overtime if they go more than 50 hours a week.Hostile
work environment for want of money and to circumvent the government proposals, or regulations in a Free country where everybody is treated equally?
Setting up employees against the Store Manager?
Making accusation meetings with the Employees and asking the Manager to "shut up"
Working hours from 5AM till 3-00PM without a break even to go to the rest room, eat lunch, smoke or call family on the phone?
Is This a "free country"? Or greed by line Management?
Please help me this is not a slave country.
