Change me from hourly to salary to cut my pay. OK...

This takes place in the β€œbefore times” when people could eat out and gather in large numbers.

I used to work as a chef, for an owner who liked to micromanage things and was a bit narcissistic. I’d been working there about 3 years, getting good reviews, customers loved me, updated the menu. Made everything from scratch, people used to think the place was open box/heat, serve food. Quality had gone up morale was great in my kitchen. Annual sales went from $850k, to $1.4 million, about maximum capacity for the space.

The increase in sales and income went to the owners head. He was always spending money on frivolous things and squandering cash. Sound system, stage for the event space, ect. One example, I needed a new Alto-Sham, a used one would have sufficed, nope he bought the top of the line one that could be used as a smoker too $12k vs what I wanted could be gotten used for $1,500. Granted I enjoyed that piece of equipment, which after I left they no longer use the smoker function. Years later I still occasionally get emails invoices from a vendor and see they bring in precooked smoked meats now.

I was hourly, but then the owner realized during the busy season I and my Sous Chef put in 70-80hr weeks. Doing this he realized I made more take home pay from his business than he did. At peak times he’d maybe work 40-50 hours a week.

So to save money he puts me and my Sous on salary effectively cutting my pay by about $10k a year. My Sous netted a loss of $2k/yr, if we were to work at our current level of effort.

During all of this the owner is saying he is not expecting us to work over 40 hours a week, EVER. He even has this written into our contracts. So with the extra time off at home with family it is ok, I still like the job and my staff. During the slower time this was great. Also during this time I had won a local award for my cooking, and the narcissistic owner was not too pleased. He was no longer recognized as the creative force in the kitchen that bears his name, so his meddling and micromanaging increased. It had gone from β€œIts your kitchen CopChef do what you want” to β€œIt’s my name and my kitchen do it this way”. Morale and quality began to suffer.

Just prior to the holiday season my Sous wants to go back to his home country for 2.5 months, November, December & January peak crazy time for us. I have good help and am good with it, owner approved the time off.

Owner thinking I am gonna save him some $$ that holiday season by worki

Mom (38) thinks she’s entitled to my (17F) salary and spends it all on designer.

My parents have never given me allowance for anything so without asking them I got a part time job after school at a restaurant where I earned $5/hr. I worked for 2 hours every day after school from 5:45-8PM.

They knew I had gotten a job so they didn’t say much of anything, my mom asked me a few questions and would be curious to learn more but that was it.

After a few months I had saved around $800 which is A LOT for me and I was planning to continue my saving until my mom asked me how much I had earned and asked me to let her save it in her account as it would be safer. I said okay.

Afterwards I saw her buy a few designers and asked her if she had spent my money to which she replied β€œI have spent thousands on you by growing you up, so what if I spent your money? Just earn it back again.”

I started bawling my eyes out, not out of sadness but pure frustration that my hardwork and hard earned money has now been washed away because of my mom. She feels entitled to my money and my dad didn’t say ANYTHING to her about it.

She refuses to return it and thinks i’m acting like a brat and told me if I continued this way she’s going to ground me and take away all my devices. Wtf?

I currently have around $80 in bitcoin and I’m going to start saving again but without my entitled mom knowing however I’m so extremely upset because I have to start from the beginning again. FYI, my family isn’t rich so $800 is a lot of money to us and there is no way she will ever return it to me for anyone that’s optimistic enough to think that my mom’s the kind to save it for me.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone except for myself. I can’t wait to get out of this house at 18.

Using a throwaway account because my friends know my real reddit account and I wouldn’t want them to see this rant.

TL;DR: Mum spent my hard earned money on designer and said she would ground me for asking her to pay me back.

Discussing your salaries at work is perfectly okay and should be normalized.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with revealing how much you make to other people, both in and outside of the workplace.

Worst case scenario you will all discover a pay disparity between people doing the same amount of work. Best case scenario is it will start a discussion and result in people being adequately compensated.

There is no shame in talking about your salary and the only people who are against it have either a vested interest in maintaining the status quo or have been brainwashed into thinking it is somehow "unprofessional, or discourteous" to talk about it.

I got a salary job at age 20

I don't have many people to talk to and even fewer who actually care. But I just got a full time job paying a salary of $42k at age 20 and I don't have a college degree.

I've been working for my state lottery for about a year and a half now but only part time. I've been applying for every full time position available for the past 3 months and a month ago I had an interview for this job. I royally fucked up the interview (at least I thought) and they picked someone else. Then I was visiting my best friend out of state last week and out of nowhere they called me saying the person who they had chosen could no longer move forward with it so they were conducting 2nd interviews over video calls and asked if I wanted to interview again the very next day. The lady also gave me tips on where to find things I should know for the interview on the inner works of the business. After running to a retail store and picking up a dress shirt and tie I starting researching the rest of the day. After that long story short I did extremely well in the interview and then ended up choosing me for it.

My first day is tomorrow and I'm excited, scared, worried, happy, confident and timid all at once every 5 seconds.

Edit: thank you all so much for the feedback, support, and advice. It really means a lot to me. And I wasn't expecting any awards but thank you for making this my first post to get awarded.

I greatly appreciate the advice and will take everything into consideration.

And for all the people asking for tips. Everything that got me to where I am has been my work ethic, research for resources, and willingness to help. I found my states government jobs website and applied for whatever I was qualified for and only got one interview, then I used my good relationships with Co workers and bosses to give good recommendations and then just doing my best in hopes of moving up in the company and it worked.

Don't worry about not having the best paying job by a certain age. Just do your best and don't rush and good things will come to you.

Trying to understand salaries for US engineers compared to Europe.

Hi

I often read, throughout this sub, how well paid US engineers are - and how they would take "huge paycuts" if they had to work for the poor wages e.g. german engineers get.

The thing is - the engineers I know make significantly above average money in Germany and are financially well off. Not rich in a "throw money around" kind of way, but can easily afford housing, a family and still put something aside every month.

Are American engineers all incredible rich? Or is the comparison skewed as they have a higher cost of living?

I won't state my numbers, but will provide a general example:

3 to 5 yr experience, Master, mechanical or electrical engineer, e.g. in automation, automotive, chip development, project work, ...

Married, a few kids.

Makes 70 to 90k EUR a year. So maybe 6500/month. After tax, health insurance, pension, unemployment insurance approx 4000+ / month is left.

Sick leave and 30 days paid holiday leave included. Workload 35 to 39h/week, overtime usually paid for.

You get money from the government for each child, that usually covers childcare.

1500 go into a nice house in the suburbs. 500 easily feed the family. So there is 2000 eur left for whatever one wants to spend his/her money on. (For another 500 you have car, phones and other monthly expenses covered as well)

This is how an engineer can afford a single income family. Add another income and the family is what I would call "very well off".

So how is this different in the US? Do American engineers really have more money left at the end of the month? Is the difference between "after tax" salaries gone once you factor in all the additional expenses?

It would be great if both American and other European engineers could provide some info and discuss - so we can shine some light on the subject and figure out if there really is such a big difference.

Please focus the discussion on understanding the topic, not on "which system is better". Thanks!
