Hi John, I'm gearing up to discuss my "salaried" position this week. After I approached my employer about the day after Thanksgiving... they paid me for it, but for Christmas they were going to be closed Christmas Eve and day after Christmas... since I brought to their attention of my salary status, and thry were required to pay me... they scheduled me, and only me, to work those days. I think they are pretty mean to do that and I have lost all respect for them...I am sure this next week we will be renegotiating my employment terms. I am planning to search for another job, but in the meantime, I need to be able to stand up to them and make them stick to our agreement...they are claiming ignorance, and didn't know just what a salary employee is. Can you give me suggestions on what to say and how to stand my ground? Thank you!
