The upper echelon of the ladder still abuses the fuck out of "salary" simply because they couldn't possibly work the number of hours needed to justify being so grossly overpaid.

It has zero political or cultural value. It is reactionary in the worse sense: a gnarled wailing of a million broken losers joined in the comradery of hate and petty personal grievance.

Well Terry,

There's some gaps here that should be filled.

If you're salaried with no overtime benefits, you should be receiving comp/sick time on top of those vacation days, I hope.

Otherwise you may want to consider your job interview skills and negotiate anything you can think of before you accept the offer.

I get a health plan and it is pretty decent especially for Montana, and includes dental and vision. Two weeks paid vacation after a year, and apparently the owners are pretty good about raises for good work.

I've actually got the hours down to around fifty a week now, and am well-liked by my subordinates and fellow manager. I actually help the housekeepers and a couple have told me I am way better than the last woman who literally called them the "hired help." And would not help them do menial stuff like folding towels and going after scumbag college kids who smoke cigarettes in their rooms.

Also Shindig, you would be very surprised how much work goes into keeping a fancy, relatively popular hotel running smoothly, ESPECIALLY on game nights when the Griz are playing. Shit is insane.

Overall I'm starting to like it. And with winter coming it will be a lot easier and less hectic and crazy. Also it's fun talking to Indians and Scots and Aussies and shit every day, and they all appreciate the fact I'm a history/geographyfag who actually knows something about their countries and history.
I am Cassandra-doomed to see the future but destined never to be believed.

Would you consider hiring a Canadian under the table who's best asset is that he's Canadian??
