Comment Free Saturdays! (Score 2) 381 381

My employer makes all salaried employees work Saturdays. Thankfully it's only a half-day, but had they been up-front about this, I would not have agreed or would have asked for significantly more money. I'm appreciative that they only ask me to work every other Saturday but there's zero pay for it. I put in about 200 hours per month while salaried positions elsewhere only require 160 hours a month. And to top it off, I've only earned 3 paid time off days in over a year, because all the additional time I work isn't counted against time off for doctor's visits and the like. It's bullshit.

My teenaged daughter mostly plays vocaloid songs on our long, long car rides. Yamaha owns the vocaloid technology

They even made a keyboard synthesizer only available in Japan that's specific to producing vocaloid music.
