17. Not Getting Paid
Plenty of employees can relate to being underpaid, but not being paid at all? Yes, there are scummy bosses who will attempt to withhold a paycheck as a form of blackmail so they can get their own way. Heather Cobb recounted on Facebook why she quit. “I was told that I had to clock out and continue working because two new workers weren’t pulling their weight. I quit the next day.”
If you ever find yourself in a similar position, keep in mind that working off the clock is illegal. If your boss ever tries to make you work off the clock, call the local labor department as soon as you’re able to.
