What kind of person works a shit-tier, entry-level, low-wage, dead-end job in their 30s, 40s and 50s? I'm talking jobs like delivery guys, cashiers, retail workers, etc. Recently the guy who delivered pizza to my door appeared to be in his 40s. What exactly is the life path of these people, and how financially fucked are they? Are they "going to make it"? How do they retire?

Pizza delivery is a bad example bc they could be making $20+ an hour so it's not exactly minimum wage it's the equivalent of a server.

>> No.16712995

Not to be an apologist but many people I've met in my life who work dead end jobs usually come from stable homes where there is no mortgage to pay or getting welfare and no dire economic threat to overcome. They are just enjoying the pop culture and narrative and don't want to really jeapordize the comfort of it all.

And there always the small group of those workers who have alot going on in the lives beyond work. Some had kids very young or had parents get sick while they were just getting started in or out of college or they themselves got sick while young adults. There are reasons people fail to launch in the economic ladder that are not due to degeneracy.

People are mostly pushed into their lifestle, it's less of a choice than you think. If I didn't grow up poor and starving I wouldn't have had a major drive to get my hands on money, and probably would have pursued a career in one of the things that are now just my hobbies.

Those who have had a good home life and make it past high school without envisioning their ideal future aren't likely to pursue any lofty goals, obviously. Apathety toward the car they drive, the house they live in or how long it takes to pay off, future family prospects, and so on are probably the only reason they never decide to take a six week course to double their income and have something resembling a career.

And of course, you have to be at least a little clever to clue in to the fact that you can affect your future with your current actions.

>Truck Driving Gravy Train

Anon Trucking has been dead since the 90's

Company Drivers make like 40 cents a mile. That's not miles driven. That's fucking miles in a straight line from point A to B.

And Owner Operators are basically gambling that the maintenance on the truck isn't going to kill any profits.

Also trucking is a shit life style.

Eventually you get bored of gas stations, sleeping in amenities that are almost no better than that of a person with no job, and dealing with dumbfuck dispatchers, and poorly signed roadways.

You're assuming a lot of things which just are not true though. I never have treated a customer worse or given them subpar service based on my assumptions of their behavior, I have never talked about my opinions of my work in a publicly identifiable position, and I have not worked in such a position for 4 years now, you might make more money then me but I currently work as a bond analyst for a private fund, I have worked minimum wage food service jobs close enough to this time though and observed similar behavior in customers as a patron as well that I feel comfortable enough to pass my judgement on the current behavior of the majority of customers in the food service industry. The exact assumptions you made are in fact what I pointed out in my first post, you do indeed to consider everyone in these capacitys as below you in some fundamental way as highlighted by your assumptions about my behavior and socio-economic status. This sort of behavior and thinking is, in my opinion, what leads so many customers who have never worked such a position in this current economic cycle to demand extremely high level service at extremely low wages, because they believe their personal opinion to be ultimately correct and largely that opinion is based on outdated models of their first jobs and people they have met who have worked similar jobs.

McDonalds actually has a killer 401k for their full time employees. The problem is that you just dont make enough money in the first place to take real advantage of it. They contribute 3 dollars per 1 dollar of your 1st percent of contribution, and 1 dollar matching for the next 4 percent. Problem is though, at minimum wage your salary is only 15k. So 1 percent of 15k is only 150, plus 450 for match. Then remaining 4 percent would be 600 dollars, plus 600 dollars matching. So for 5 percent of a minimum wage salary you walk away with an extra 1050. Good 401k, bad pay to match. Imagine if you were making 20 bucks an hour instead tho. 416 + 1248, and 1664 x 2.

The former would retire with 543k while the latter would retire with 1.3m. That is, if you only contribute the 5 percent and nothing more.

> the industry is largely an immigrant slave plantation now and the customers treat you as such

I actually mentioned exactly what you said. Furthermore using food service is actually correct, that is how the government defines the restaurant and fast food industry, I am just using proper terminology. Once again it shows your lack of current knowledge around the industry, and wether or not warehouse work is hard I couldn't say because I've never worked in it, but that is a moot point considering we are discussing the clientele in food service specifically, not clientele in general. I am sorry if because you consider a different entry level low paid position harder you feel that somehow excuses how the customers act towards other service industries, I tend to treat every employee I meet with respect, regardless of how hard I perceive their jobs of being, exactly because I have heard many people with opinions very similar to yours that have never worked any entry level labor regardless of the industry. If you feel another job, such as warehouse work, is more demanding then food service for just as equally shitty pay then I think that just empowers my argument of a general shift in the population towards borderline narcissistic and out of touch attitudes in regards to the most overworked and underpaid positions in our society, food service and warehouse alike.

They're just transient job-hoppers who never developed any skills.

They worked jobs to "get by", whatever random job they found themselves in to pay rent, buy food, the basics of life, etc. and stayed there a couple years, then moved on to a similar low paid job again just to "get by" and continue living, and it's literally that pattern continued for decades.

They fell into a cycle of paying for the basics of life and never developing any particular talent or skillset or unique ability, they just filled a spot doing whatever unskilled labor that was needed, and as long as it brought a paycheck they'd keep doing it.

A lot of them probably lack capacity to really plan and organize things for the future, they just do what's needed in that moment, or that week, whatever it is.

And the problem is compounded by "life hardships" or other drains on their finances like unplanned children or possibly alcoholism or other drug use.

Quick rundown how it happens.
Relative runs a business, successful, hires only relatives and then fills up empty places with outside people.
Shit goes good for at least 15-20 years. Most relatives don't have any educations, they live together with that one guy's business. Shit goes bust. They are not 20 anymore, neither do they are in their 30. They are in their 40 with no education.
It happens all the time, everywhere. They grab last straws and work lazy jobs over and over, because that's what they can still do.

They're usually those lazy pothead normies in HS that just never really stood out or applied themselves academically, no college money no scholarship so they just kind of floated into mcdonalds/retail and found a roomate/family member and just they just went full auto normie.

Fuck that stagnancy shit and fuck college too, theres always something you can do to improve your fucking situation. You could march down to the library and read books on business, web development, investing for free and start planning your future. But 99% of these wage fucks wont do that. The moment they get off work at Friday evening, they either spend their money at the bar or jerk off and watch Netflix on their roommates couch.

If you're a sad wager then get in your beat up Cadillac and drive down any niggerhood or spicland, you'll just see them drinking and loitering wasting their life instead of valuing their time and investing in the pursuit of knowledge and cultivating ambitious plans. You'll start to see similarities in your lifestyles.

Seriously, if you were to just ruthlessly invest at least 1 hour a day into research and planning, your life would change within weeks. And no, I'm not talking about lightly browsing biz or some article. But reading fucking books, writing down fucking plans, and seeking out people who've made it and devouring their guidance.

You guys missed later on where I said 90% of my take-home goes into chainlink...but still

It's shit, but as usual you retarded abbos can't into exchange rates (it's about even). The problem being that the pay has been at this level for 20 or 30 years, with no adjustment for inflation and the insane COL. Boomers and suicidal truckers made 110k starting adjusted, and 150-170+ with some exp...whereas I have to take out a quarter mil in loans to get into the 110-130k range, ignoring the 5x in truck, fuel prices, and insurance today.

I'm 32 and I work a job that started out as, basically, purgatory itself. After years of living like there were no consequences, bouncing from job to job and not really giving a shit about anything, experimenting a little bit too heavily with drugs and letting my relationships go to absolute shit.. next thing you know I needed to make as much money as possible, and the opportunity in front of me was to work 80 back-breaking hours a week for $550, put into a "management" position that was completely undoable because of the structure of the company. It was fucking humiliating

I make a lot more than that now and usually in a lot less hours, and it's still a little bit shit, and still probably a little bit illegal or at least a very grey area legally, but sticking around at this job for 6 years and giving it my all, it's all really coming together and I've learned a lot. It would have been a dead end job to anyone else, but I've given it everything I've got from day one and I can see the entire company evolving over these years and even the owners have changed with how they treat people.

I stay because staying has been a great choice up til now and it continues to be fruitful. I do have some ideas of what I'd like to do when I decide to walk away, but for now I'm sticking around and hoping to put at least another $20k away this year into cash savings. That's basically my goal right now because sometimes I do still want to leave but I have all my money tucked away into things that I don't want to touch. Now I want cash.

Now, I almost fell into a trap. I was feeling a little heartbroken and I started drinking a bit. I could easily let myself go and drink more than a 750ml of high proof whiskey every week. But I'm not. And I think that's something that a lot of people like myself could easily fall into. Over the years I've met a lot of really talented people working jobs like this, but they drink heavily and unfortunately that might as well be the end of the line

It's this exactly at least I assume so. They're NPCs who are perfectly happy with the status quo, so they don't aspire for anything greater. They're somehow content with just waging and blowing whatever little extraneous income they have on base pleasures, and just doing that day after day until they die, not really concerned with aspiring for anything greater or improving the lot they've been given.

And I guess that's fine because we need people like that.

I used to work at McDonalds and literally every other person but me had a second job. Now I work in an office and goof off on the weekends but make twice as much as I used to; I also take at least one week long paid vacation each year. Minimum wage workers don't have weekends and they work on holidays like New Years Eve. America is fucked. The richer you are the more leisure time you have.

I knew one guy who biked for an hour to work each morning during the winter in the Midwest. I used to do that too. Many people at the bottom can't even afford cars that would give them access to better job opportunities.

This right here is gold. This is the trap of life, and the only way to rise above is to devote yourself to building needed skills. This is especially hard to do when it is so appealing to stay complacent. Additionally, there are so many traps around us that want to keep brains fried from releasing dopamine daily, and making the long game harder to play.

The only way to rise above is continually improving your skills, and never stopping. Especially in this world, this has to be the mindset. Before you could live off a couple of skills until retirement. But in today's climate, that just isn't happening.

...I got back in after a 4 year gap. A guy actively tried to ruin my career but I had enough friends that wanted to work with me and recommended me. Companies really just want you to be able to say you did something. That you're not a slacker. Friends that vouch for you help with that. Founding a company helps with that too and it's cheap to do for an easy cover story.

I work for schnieder National dedicated account. It's a salary paid position. On your 4th week out on the road and every week after you get a $400 dollar bonus. I have no need to go home so I was regularly making $1380 a week then at 6 months I got a raise to 1450 and that doesnt include the potential fuel bonus. Super chill job too. Highly recommend it for anyone who's willing to stay out at least 4 months at a time. Only one time did I ever feel over worked. the asshole on the home depot flatbed account was working me for my entire 70 every week. After a while I told him I wasn't going to be pulling 14 hour shifts anymore because of fatigue and if I did have to, expect me to be sleeping in the next day.
