How to Quit Your Job: Bring a Brass Band


Mon, Oct 17th, 2011 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

Joey decided he had enough of working his terrible hotel job and decided to quit in style: he brought in a brass band.

Here is a portion of his explanation as to why he did this:

I worked in this hotel for 3.5 years. I worked while going to school full time to pay my tuition and living expenses. This was not a job I had for two weeks before quitting in a hissy-fit.

The working conditions in the hotel are horrendous. In the kitchen, workers are regularly forced to work 10, 11, 14, 16 hour shifts that begin at 5:30AM and last well into the night. Housekeepers are reprimanded if they fail to clean 16 rooms or more in a 9 hour shift. Anyone who speaks up -- especially anyone who is openly pro-union -- is disciplined or fired. Managers, like Jared, scream down employees daily.
