Job Offers $20 An Hour For Master's Degree Holder, Pays $10, Tries To Call It A Typo
Starting a new job, even if you're used to working, can be really confusing. There are lots of forms to sign, contracts to read, and people to meet. It's on top of tough interviews too. Sometimes, it feels like they're trying to confuse us on purpose, like they want to trick or use us. But not all jobs are like that. Some bosses are good and care about employees.
But this story isn't one of those. Someone on Reddit asked for advice when they were promised good pay but got only half. Having gone through a master's program to be lied to and paid ten dollars an hour must feel like a slap in the face. This kind of shenanigans seems like the kind of thing that would only happen with bad drug deals and under-the-table contractor work, but somehow it happens.
