Help! My Employee Thinks She Deserves Pay In Exchange For Labor!
Ask A Manager, 19 October 2021:
I’m not comfortable with one of my new staff members and how overconfident she is. Her work is great and she needed very little training but she’s got very big britches.
“Jane” has only been with us for two months. Just today she asked for a meeting with me and our payroll manager. It turns out payroll made an error entering her direct deposit information that resulted in Jane not getting paid, not once but two times.
Our company requires potential candidates to complete sample assignments during the interview process and we pay them an hourly contractor rate. It turns out she didn’t get paid for her assignment period, or for the next full pay cycle. The payroll employee apologized directly to Jane in an email, because it was their error in entering her information and not following up/fixing it that resulted in Jane not getting paid. Jane was able to show emails back and forth where she checked in with the payroll employee and asked if it was fixed, which they confirmed it was. Today was payday and Jane didn’t get paid. She checked with the employee again and they acknowledged that they “thought” it was fixed. It’s upsetting for Jane, I understand, but I think she was out of line about the whole thing. People make mistakes.
Neither payroll nor I knew anything about it until today. We both apologized and assured her the issue would be handled. After that, she looked at me and the payroll manager and said, “I appreciate your apology, but I need you both to understand that this can���t happen again. This has put me under financial strain and I can’t continue to work for COMPANY if this isn’t corrected today.” The payroll manager was heavily in agreement, but I was speechless that she’d speak to management like that.
Payroll handled the whole thing and cut her a check with the okay from HR. Jane had referenced that not being paid put her in financial hardship and unable to pay bills, so HR allowed the use of the employee hardship fund and gave her $500 in gift cards so she can get groceries and gas and catch up on bills. I’m just kind of floored that she’s getting gift cards after speaking to her superiors like that. I’m also uncomfortable because why is our company responsible for her fiscal irresponsibility? Her personal finances or debts are not the company’s responsibility. I just don’t think it’s the company’s responsibility to give her more than what she’s earned (the extra $500 from the employee emergency relief fund) to fix things for her if she overspent or didn’t prioritize her bills or save smartly. We also don’t know if she is actually experiencing a financial hardship or just claiming she was.
HR allowed her paid time to go to the bank today and deposit her check. I told our HR person that while it’s not okay Jane didn’t get paid, the way she approached it was uncalled for. HR told me, “She’s right, it can’t happen again and it shouldn’t have happened at all.” I’m getting tired of the respect gap I’m seeing with younger staff. I think Jane would be better suited in a different department. I’m not comfortable having her on my team since it’s obvious she doesn’t understand she’s entry-level and not in charge. Should I wait a while before suggesting she transfer to a different department?
Dear Employer,
You raise a number of important issues, not least among them: why do we work? Do we work because the vast majority of us are helpless to escape a fundamentally exploitative global capitalist system that requires us to exchange our time and skills and labor for money or else simply fuck off and die? Or do we work because we must get taken down a peg or two before we get too uppity to be useful to our social and economic betters?
I'm being rhetorical, of course! The correct answer is the latter, obviously. Work is not something people should or even usually do for a paycheck, which is what makes this situation so bizarre! Work is something people do because it's the right thing to do, because it is intrinsically good for its own sake, which is to say: because it literally enriches and empowers only the most worthy in order to further distance otherwise useless, entitled grunts like your employee from getting anywhere close to laying even the barest finger, even a pinky finger, on the means of production. There's nothing more purely and altruistically satisfying than working, especially when we know that our labor serves to strengthen the boot upon our own necks! A strong boot means a happy worker! Huzzah!
And what you have here, letter writer, is not a happy worker — what you have here is a worker who believes work and pay are related, and that they are entitled to reimbursement for their work merely because that is the immutable and binding nature of the laws where you live. I can't think of a better example of one being too big for one's britches than this little grabby-gabby wiseass with the gall to demand payment for services rendered per an expressly agreed-upon prior contract between all parties.
It's a real shame that the law requires people to be paid for their labor regardless of whether they bring a sufficiently sunny attitude to the workplace, and there's certainly nothing sunny about being clear and direct that you cannot continue to work for free indefinitely with a spring in your step and a song in your heart! What kind of sourpuss can't show a bit of cheer in the office, even if the lights are off at home and they can't afford groceries or other basic essentials because of the repeated incompetence of an employer who holds their very survival in their hands? That's not the kind of can-do attitude that gets people ahead in this world!
Of course, by "people" we mean young people, who will never succeed as long as they remain universally and frightfully presumptuous. Everyone your age and older has unimpeachable comportment in every situation, whereas people who are younger than you are disrespectful smart-alecks — and it's frankly disturbing that your HR department conceded so quickly to your employee's unreasonable fixation on receiving money that she was legally entitled to! What's next, avocado toast and $5 lattes on demand???? A living wage???? Health insurance???? For an entry-level employee who's so poor with money management that she complains about going months without pay????
Only people who suffer in silence at length out of sheer and absolute terror at offending those who hold control over their financial wellbeing deserve to be paid money for food and shelter, and they can take their paychecks whenever your company damn well gets around to it, and thank you for the pleasure! Why wait to transfer this employee out of your department — surely you're not afraid of offending this selfish peon? Cut her loose, along with anyone else she might have influenced with her money-grubbing ways, and ensure that you are surrounded only with the worshipful lackeys you deserve!

📝Your Ideal Self-Concept—Timeless Tarot Pick A Card
…you’d better exhibit a persona that matches your personal power, babe🌟
[Back to Masterlist] [Part 2] [Part 3]
Pile 1 – High-Class Bad Bitch
Tumblr media
your personal power – King of Wands Rx
You’re someone who’s been misunderstood a lot in life. Either because you’re too powerful or too unique. Whatever you do, people think you’re too much of everything they’re afraid of allowing themselves to become. And they’re quite jelly of that, you know. You embody a singularly unique identity they crave for themselves.
People preach ‘be yourself’ all the time but it’s all just cheap talk for the most part. It’s a broken affirmation they can never live up to. And here you are strutting your unique identity and passion for life like it’s nobody’s business. People think you’re insulting their cowardice when all you do is just breathe.
You’re not the problem, they are. Weaklings see fire and they want to put it out because they’re scared. But that’s never gonna happen (and you shouldn’t let that happen) because you are a cosmic engine. You came into this world carrying such potent fire because you’re meant to cleanse the world of weakling mindset. You’re meant to eradicate poverty mindset.
But who’s to say you aren’t compassionate even when you’re gung-ho?
your communication style – 6 of Cups
In spite of appearances, you’re someone who holds deep compassion for other people’s hardships. When you connect with someone else, you feel their emotions as you listen to their stories. You can feel other people’s pain and you’re the type that wants to cheer or motivate others. Sometimes you might even be too positive and want to shun negativity—and that’s when you come across as stern or unempathetic. But that’s just sometimes.
If there’s anything to fix, in a manner of speaking, it is that you don’t always put other people in your shoes. Being born with power in your character, you might not always understand why other people can’t seem to help themselves. You want to help in a way that could be seen as a bit aggressive sometimes… but that’s really because you’re trying to motivate your own inner child.
You see, sometimes people are pathetic because when they were growing up nobody ever believed in their innate goodness. And I think you just need this tiny reminder of how you’ve grown up as well—when nobody believed in your capabilities. But different from others, you’re strong. If this resonates, all you need to do is develop patience. You’re already compassionate and understanding, but patience is a different virtue.
what is your Art? – Page of Pentacles Rx
You’re someone who just has this ability to break conventions. Seriously, no matter how small that convention is. You break rules, delight in taboos, engage in controversial activities. You could even be the black sheep of a family, neighbourhood, society, or even nation. But what’s all that for?
For adding flavour to this drab world. What else you think? You’re colourful and you say and do things others are afraid to admit they want to emulate. Fuck that. You’re the perfect example of freedom. As long as you’re responsible and maintain your own safety, I think you can do whatever you want.
Your true Art in life is breathing in all the world has to offer. Sometimes the good, sometimes the bad. But by not being afraid to face challenges head on, you learn to balance your perspective on power and how it is used in human interactions. If you develop correctly, you won’t become the type of asshole that wants to exert power over others. And that in itself, is your contribution to the healing of your society.

Pile 2 – Undercover Genius Inventor
Tumblr media
your personal power – 10 of Wands Rx
You’re a whacko, admit it already. You’re just feigning normalcy. You know how to maintain a façade of someone boring, but you’re a born artist. You wear a polite monochrome mask but your Soul is made of colour and drama. Maybe for survival, you pretend to be dumb. But you and I know you’ve got this crazy keen analysis ability. You observe everything closely and notice other people’s likes and dislikes just by their behaviour. And then you adjust.
A chameleon, you’re a sly bitch that goes: ‘Bimbos are gonna rule the world.’ You just sit there and be pretty and act dumb and the world offers you melons. Little do they know, you’re a hard worker. You hustle with brilliant concepts when no one’s watching or expecting anything from you. You’re a true Artist of Life because the whole world is your stage/canvas/runway/what have you.
You’re not one to be tamed by other people’s demands and orders. You create your own T&C whilst pretending like you’re agreeing with what others are saying. But you’re getting under everyone’s skin. You’ve developed so much power purely from within yourself, maybe because you came from a past that had so many restrictions. Your biggest gift is your big brain, oh and, a sassy attitude towards Life.
your communication style – 5 of Pentacles
You keep your secrets close to your heart. You don’t even reveal how much you have. Whatever you show is just a portion of what you’re allowing others to see. In a way, there’s a lot of darkness surrounding the true nature of your force. And that’s intriguing to a lot of people. They want to know what makes you tick. And you guard yourself so well that you remain an exciting enigma.
More important still, because you’ve had a past that’s not so easy, you can instead easily connect with those who are struggling. You give realistic and practical advice that others can quickly grasp. It’s natural like that because you know the struggles of not having much. Some people can easily like you; but some could easily hate you for your power as well.
All in all though, for those that are on the same wavelength as you, you serve as a source of inspiration. There’s something mega unique and strong about your vibe that only those peeps can recognise. And they’ll want to emulate you. Some people might even worship you because you possess a special kind of sly charm when talking.
what is your Art? – 10 of Cups
Those who don’t know you may not recognise this right away, but you’re a loyal person. Yeah, you’re kinda guarded and enjoy flying solo like that; you’re also somewhat secretive, but your heart is actually very big. If only the world weren’t so dangerous you’d be so open with everyone and hug every person who’s hurting right now. Alas, the world ain’t like that.
Still, when you’ve become so much more developed than now, you’ll be a fount of healing for other Souls who are just as unique as you. You could have like a tribe or squad or sisterhood, and you act as the Goddess On Top that protects everyone’s wellbeing. Like you could even be overseeing other people’s development like a mentor. -Bro, are you in a cult or smt?-
There’s something quite parental about your vibe. And I think you’re meant to create a community of peaceful people whose focus is to have fun whilst being alive. Even by just doing your unique thing, as long as you’re not hurting people, you’re already contributing to the healing of this world~

Pile 3 – Technomancy World Leader
Tumblr media
your personal power – 6 of Wands
You may have a chill and serene exterior, but anybody who takes a peek inside your Soul will be astounded by just how hot your ambitions are. Your Life has not been easy and the struggles you’ve met along the way have become a fuel for your desires to achieve greatness in this lifetime. I think you’re frustrated with the status quo. To some extent, you may even hate this world. You hate it so much you want to change it (hopefully for the better).
You are a unique Soul. Your energy signature is so original that you shine a colour that is singularly yours. It’s almost like you’ve been singled out by the Universe itself. Everywhere you go, you attract attention and command respect without even trying. You can’t even hide this charisma. The more you try to blend in the more solitary you appear to be. And there’s a purpose to that.
Most people on this Planet are boring and they try so hard to fit into their societies just for survival. As cowardly that can be, deep down this world yearns for eccentric individuals to serve as a source of inspiration. Cowardly-but-honest people just need some kind of validation for their own weirdness. But those who are dishonest are probably gonna hate you. But who cares about them? You just shine anyway~
your communication style – XV The Devil
Power motivator. Seducer. Divine Jokester. You have a weird way of speaking and your sense of humour is either dark or inappropriate. You like to shock people with taboo questions and aren’t afraid to mock political correctness. What’s the point of being fake polite when behind the mask everyone knows the world doesn’t get better by polite and comfortable conversations?
Yet at the same time, you’re not prone to anger outbursts. You collect yourself easily and can deliver your scandalous points of view calmly and with precision. Your intelligence is both empathetic and piercingly savage. When you open your mouth, you’re not just doing it for the sake of having arguments. Every word you say serves to slap the status quo in the freaking face.
You show the authorities their own stupidity and the idiotic ways they think about shit and go about saving the world. Nobody’s doing it right because everybody’s got all their priorities upside down. And you’re here to tell them to fuck off and get their shit straight. You may gain enemies, but those who vibe with you are probably gonna worship you. You are the Muse of the world’s rebels.
what is your Art? – XVI The Tower
So obvious. You’re here to bring down the old regime of the world’s powers. You’re here to break conventions. Dare I say, you’re meant to lead a rebellion against the psychos that are destroying this Planet. Your personal rebellion could involve: championing environmental movements, flipping the power abuse within family settings, empowering youth innovation, revamping the education system, breaking down cultural/political barriers, and so on and so on. Oh, and…
Bridging spiritual knowledge with technological ways of seeing things. You just have that natural aptitude to understand the more cosmic nature of the world and how energies play out in the physical. You’ll be sharing knowledge and perspectives that are so fresh yet so nostalgic—like, they just make sense but most people didn’t see them before you opened your mouth.
Quite honestly, I see peeps who have chosen Pile 3 are leaders of the new Age of Aquarius. You are harbingers of a soft revolution. I think many of you are gonna leave important legacies and your names will be remembered for hundreds of years to come. You have the power to leave a lasting impact on the world’s stage and make it a better place for future generations.
