Unreasonable and unconsionable

July 30, 2008 maydarling

So last night or rather in the wee hours of this morning, I found myself sitting at work.


For a regular, so-called desk-job that supposedly only calls on me to work the occasional late-night and/or weekend, I find myself regularly putting in 60+ per week.



But! Since this *is* the fashion industry and this *is* Manhattan, I do earn overtime. Wh00t.

It’s only the overtime that allows me to keep up my sham fabulous lifestyle. And if you’re curious about how late I was there, I didn’t leave until 3:45am. And I just love taking the D train home that time of the morning. This work situation is completely out of control and something must be done.

But apparently it’s cheaper just to pay me overtime than to hire someone else to share the workload.

Even though what they’re going to end up paying me in OT will pretty much equal what they could pay an additional person. Heh. But whatever. Keep paying me OT and I’ll keep earning it. 🙂
