Stupidity Does Not Get Rewarded
As a fresh new Spring 2012 graduate, I started my very first job in September 2012. My two bosses made the offer sound so ridiculously appealing: "you will make a fantastic commission at the end of the year! You will earn a six-figure salary if you join this company!" With Judge Judy's car sale example, they were the VERY talented car salesmen. On the first day of the job, I went into the job WITHOUT a contract signed. Their excuse? "Oh sorry, we did not have time to fill it out. Don't worry, we will get to it!" Being so incredibly naive, I said no problem. BIG MISTAKE. Two months in without a contract signed, I saw that this company was scamming me. My bosses turned into tyrants and started changing clauses left and right in my contract. My end-of-the-year commision had so many stipulations added. I had to quit. They did not pay me my last month's salary. I can't go to court to fight it because there was nothing in writing. I can hear Judge Sheindlin now: "What is wrong with you?!"
