What Coffee Break?

The unemployment rate in this part of the world is currently around 3%. Usually it's around five, which means it's an employees' market out there. It also means that every company that hires under $10/hour is woefully understaffed. My boss will literally hire anyone who makes it in for an interview.

So, our shipping-receiving department is run by 17-year-olds. This means that the second my boss leaves for the day, no matter what time, they go out and sit in their car, smoke cigarettes (I hope it's cigarettes) and shoot the shit.

Must be nice.

Oh, and they're making almost as much as I do.
