Minimum wage for tipped employees in 2018 is $3.52/hr. And that's in our state. The federal minimum wage is $2.13. It's so disgusting it should be criminal to pay people a wage like that. The fact that they also make tips does not matter. That is a slave wage. Fun fact: In Alaska, the minimum wage is the same for tipped and non-tipped employees.

Ok, soapbox rant here. A local family-run restaurant in our town had to close because they didn't have enough people working there. The owner was all "poor me" about it in the news but he's paying people minimum wage to work there. Lots of other businesses nearby pay assemblers, chefs, waitresses, etc. at least $3 an hour more. If companies want to stay in business, PAY PEOPLE A FAIR GODDAMN WAGE.

I had a bipolar husband. There are different kinds of bipolar. None of them are easy for a spouse to live with or a co-worker to work with. Hell on earth, in fact. Because you never know what you're going to have to deal with next.

In response to a confession. I got the JOB!!! It's going to pay more than I would have made at any of the other jobs I interviewed for and the commute is super short! I'm so excited!!

A recruiter contacted me on indeed. Talked up a lot of great things so I had a phone interview today. Very misleading job description. It'd pay about $3 more per hour, but the commute would be an hour each way. And if I moved to that part of town, housing is either ridiculously priced or seriously crime infested. Plus the description made it out to be a loan advisor and purchase agent but it's cold calling debt collection, which is basically the one job I could never do and have a good conscience. I've gotten another half dozen rejections but I got invited to test for a police dispatch job next week. Hopefully that one goes well- it pays nearly twice what I make now.

Me too, OP. I'm looking hard too. I had an interview on Friday for a job with a very good company that I thought went well. I'll find out if I got it or not this week, but yeah--lots of interview, no offers. I hope you find something soon. Job hunting just sucks so bad.

I can't find a job. I've applied for months. It's taking a toll on mine and dh's already strained relationship. Please pray I find something soon.

In response to a confession. I refer to my CW as bipolar because her behavior fits the description of the disorder. One day she came in pretty chipper. Within 10 minutes she was agitated and saying she had to go home because "this place is toxic" when not one person had said a word. She can be happy, pensive, nervous, pissed off and raging at one or more of us and back again all in the course of a couple hours. Sooo after about a week of being her target, she's now done a 180 and has been as sweet as pie to me for the past several days. She even brought me coffee and a pastry. This reminds me of my mother, who was in fact bipolar, who would beat the shit out of me for no reason, and then buy me something expensive to make up for it.

Well. I didn't get the DNR job. She called me personally and said that I was extremely qualified but that they had another candidate who already had experience and she had some sort of disability which meant she had to work at a desk all the time. But: she let me in on another DNR job that will be opening in a couple weeks for an effluent limits calculator and she says she thinks I will be really good for it. She encouraged me to apply once it's posted. So I will do exactly that. I'm determined to do this.
