So what do you do when you're a part time employee who makes about $10/hour and it takes you a gallon or so of gas to get to work and another gallon or so to get home and they ask you to come in on Saturday morning for a couple of hours and the gas price is up to $4.15 for regular at the cheap gas station?
It's happening to a a lot of folks. Happened to my son this morning. We figure he netted about $9 or $10 for 2 hours work, not to mention the commute which took about an hour for both ways. Why even bother? He will use that $9 for gas to get to work the next time he has to be there. What's going to happen to companies when employees can't even afford to go to work?
