How many wageslaves are on Veeky Forums?
You are the only one
Overtime since 14 checking in. Getting closer to freedom every day OP.
Finally getting my shit together.
Got 2 houses and a failed llc. Looking to start a few more.
Taking into consideration 90% of businesses fail i only need to start 100 to have 10. Im assuming even my autistic ass would learn the ropes by the 10th business and be able to start more an have a higher sucess rate.
I'm wage slaving right now. 3 more fucking hours to go
NEET master race reporting in
Wageys please kys
Wagey here. I hate my job :DDDD
Least it pays well.
Me too. 6 down. Only 4 left. Tomorrow is fuckoff friday. Hopefully get my work done and get to dickoff all day and get paid 10 hours of overtime.
Gotta get that money saved for real estate investing class
Lol. Why u lazy faggot. Who do u think built all of your anime figuringes and stared in all your interacial gangbang gay porn? People with jobs.
Grow the fuck up kid. Nobody restects an autistic neet who leeches off of society
Wageslave but running part-time business on the side. Once that's making money I'll shift over into that full time.
Right here. $8/hr, 60hrs/week. I live with my parents so I get to pocket most of it. Been teaching myself web design so I could start a dropshipping business, but now I realize that I didn't need to do that.
Here's to all of you grinding, we're all gonna make it brah.
i can afford all the vidya but i just have a huge stack of unopened games now
sorry m8 you got the wrong guy.
don't like anime
don't like porn
investing all my money now so i don't have to be a butthurt wagey like yourself
Thats what they say, but my coworkers are 45. When will we make it?!
Can I ask a question to other wageslaves - do you actually work hard? I hear people saying how they do jack shit all day but I'm forced to work out my ass all day otherwise my manager will shit on me
I have to work hard because our manager understaffs but I slack off every chance I get.
I can't even get a decent job to begin with, so I think wageslaves are above me.
I'm trying to get /rich/ online though. One day, some day... I've worked on one idea roughly 12 hours a day for the past 5 days (actual work, not browsing 4chinz while "working" on it), about to launch it. Maybe I can skip the wageslave step entirely and go straight from part time barely employed into one of those hipster cunts who works off a laptop lounging in Chiang Mai. At this point I'm operating at about 50% of poverty line and am fully willing to sell my soul to evil for the sake of the almighty dollar. Even if I don't see a cent for 6 months, that's better than wageslaving. I applied for jobs for an entire year now and got nothing. I mean targeted, researched, well-written individualized cover letters, resume tweaking and reviews from a professor, interviews, even tried going to a place I wanted to work as a customer first (got turned down automatically because didn't have cuntomer service xp.)
The wageslave world rejected me because I didn't do an unpaid internship for two years first. What a scam. First you pay money for a degree, then you slave for free, for the hope of making meh-okay money some day if you lick enough shoes and are willing to work overtime and weekends. Fuck them.
work two shifts a week, 4 hours each
Not hard to work "hard" in this case. Also yes, I'm direly poor.
what are you working on? Dont have to be super specific.
Here's my plan: set up enough online businesses so that I'm making around 40k/year. Move down to colombia where I can live like a king for that much money. Buy portions of various local businesses.
Retire as a pillar of the community within 10 years. What do you think?
I go to work and have two options:
1) Get engrossed in the work, strive to find fulfilment in what I produce and build a good reputation
2) Slack off and watch the minutes drag past, wishing and yearning not to be there, all the while drain energy through managing perceptions
In the end, option 2 takes more energy than option 1
It's a no-brainer
Slinging shit to imbeciles.
Some Enlightened Man Explain the "wage gap"
Gotta get that money saved for real estate investing class
You do realize real estate investing classes are nearly all scams, right?
I'm a wagecuck, but most of my income is commission, so a lot of it is up to me.
I probably only work about 3-4 hours a day over the 8 I put in daily at the office. The rest is spent reading or playing civ or shit posting. My boss works 40 mins away so all of our communication is done over the phone. He doesn't care as long as I see clients, sell out services and deliver them on time.
At least I don't have to do any cold calling or worry about generating leads.
what do you do?
I'm a college student
I literally pay tons of money to get work assigned to me
I work hard when there's work to do, otherwise I just fuck around on the computer.
That's life in IT for you
What do you do in IT? I'm a systems admin and there is constantly a list of like 100 issues to deal with
When will we make it?!
On the ol lunchbreak right now.
Need that $80 to invest and whatch go away. Then work tomorrow, rinse and repeat
How much do you make in IT? From what I hear it's pretty chill and makes decent money.
Awesome fucking idea. Colombia is known for its wealth, safety, and quality of life. Enjoy, man!
Ex wageslave, technically still wageslave, but not really. Here's a brief history of my working career. I'm 24 now btw
Come back to the US at 19 from abroad
Work for restaurant
Cut my hand open on an avocado, nearly lose feeling in a finger forever
Decide to get a different job where I don't work with knives
Get job as teller at a bank
11/h plus sales commissions
Find out that with my superb social skills, I make a fantastic salesperson
Hit 400 % of my quarterly sales goal in 1 week
Continue being the best selling teller the bank had ever seen
After 6 months, the personal banker at the head office leaves
Ask my boss if he thinks I can move up
He gets his boss to put in a good word for me to the CEO and I get the job
Continue selling like a maniac, particularly good at getting investment partners involved, one of whom I become very good friends with
After 2 years as personal banker, investment banking partner gets me on the track of investment banking salesman
I'm not even licensed yet, so I can't finalize deals, but I learn the products, and can sell them very well, and I bring in the real investment partner to finalize deals
Do this for one year, until about three months ago when I finally finished my degree
Now fully fledged investment banking salesman
I make 150k base salary plus commissions
This is my 4th month being investment banking salesman,
I have made 300k in commissions already by talking with friends' parents who think I'm an upstanding young man
Starting to get friendly with the head man for investment banking at our bank

Why are you here? Go have sex with models or something. Go enjoy life.
You're here forever isn't a joke user...
I'll block Veeky Forums off of all your devices if you want. We were suppose to be able to leave. It wasn't meant to be like this.
There's something oddly cathartic about this place. I can't put my finger on it, but it's just a reminder of how we're all nothing, so we should enjoy what we have. Also, I have zero interest in acting like a rich person. My goal with any job was to find something I enjoy and will make it so I never have to worry about money again.
My kids will never know how wealthy we are, and my fiancee knows it, but has been with me since I was a teller, and money doesn't mean a ton to either of us. I don't really spend money on material things, I spend them on trips, things to enjoy with other people, experiences, which honestly, don't cost much. At least I can start crossing items off my rich person bucket list.
I'm making enough money to do a lot of fun shit.
Yet some nights I still like coming here.
It's anonymous banter between strangers that will never meet.
For that reason it is insanely honest (and sometimes insanely dishonest)
So you get the real thoughts and facts out there. As men we love it.
Sometimes insanely dishonest
We are on Veeky Forums, I doubt anything anyone says for the most part, and the old saying is still true
Only a fool would take anything posted here as fact
But yeah, anonymous banter between strangers is fun
Last month I crossed off item 1 on my rich person bucketlist
Talk with homeless person for an hour wearing normal street clothes on my day off
He keeps telling me how life used to be better and that he just wishes he could go back to living indoors like he did before his divorce and spiraling alcohol addiction that he got over 3 years ago, but he could never save enough money to make the safe deposit for rent from his job of pushing shopping carts
At the end of conversation, I take him into a coffee shop, and give him an envelope with 1500 dollars in it
Tell him that he can now
I have no use for this much money anons, I need some other good deeds that actually help people to do with my money. I don't want to just throw it in some charity.
Fair enough i guess.
I dont like porn tho?
Wtf is wrong with u?
Kek. Got a late start and was beyond autistic i will admit. Bit i have oassed out and thrown uo amd heat stroked out working hard. Dumb, yes. Bit i wouldnt trade it for the world. A lot of tryhard faggots and millionairs will say they worked hard. They never stacked 1,000 bales of hay, puked, stacked 500, puked, staked 500 more, and woke up headed to the ER. 1 bro besides my dad outworked me. We still laugh about me almost killing myself trying to win. That is wanting it.
Now im doing what u are while wagecucking myself to high hell. Taking thia mentality into investing. Gonna be a fun ride win lose or draw
Union longshoreman. I do alright.
When u dont buy the $4 redbull or $5 scratch off. When u bring lunch instead of fastfood. When u drive a not so trustworthy 20 year old shitbox instead of that new truck of 30 year old dodge cummins.
Not saying be frugal. If u want an occasional red bull do it.
Just dont soend 15 years of your life living out of the gas station and drunk like i did.
Dont guilt yourself bit lool at that $20 before u spend it and think, if i had a few hindred of these wtf would i do with it to help me never work again.
They are a lot easier to save that way.
Fuck the redbull. I can go without or chug a pot of nasty bean watter and have a can of dr. Pepper.
he spent it on alcohol and heroin
bean water? just eatng a can of beans for lunch?
maybe, but who's to say.
I'm thinking medellin, which actually is known for that. And for it's gorgeous women who can't keep themselves off Americans. Btw I'm fluent in spanish, so the transition would be easy
Why do you fags always call it "wageslaves"? This reminds me of the whole cuckoldry thing that /pol/ has
There aren't any good, viable alternatives to having a job unless you are one of the talented few that are actually successful with their start-up or become a doctor
I also have fairly enjoyed my internships, and doubt I'll find the full-time job I've accepted for after graduation to become unbearable. Have that many of you simply gotten shifty degrees that you just don't have any good career prospects?
Open a pizza shop in a quiet suburb
Not that guy but i eat a can of four bean mix everyday. Less than a dollar if i go to aldi
thats $1 for lunch, cereal and milk $1 breakfast, dinner is up to you
Beans are healthy, cheap and filling. It is an acquired taste though so baked beans are better to start on
Even business-owners are slaves to their wages: they have to work as many hours or more for the same salary as other people.
Of course, some are very succesfull and earn mad dough, respect for that, but most can only extract the same as say a nurse or an electrician, some even less if you look at hourly wage
t. factory worker bringing home 60.000€ pre-tax
I'm not looking for a handout or a get rich quick scam. And their $600 class on credit and financing has saved me thousands already. All of this information is readily available but who do u trust? I see so much conflicting information online i have descided to bite the bullet and learn from people in the business.
If it is a scam then meh, i saved cash a few months instead of buying that harley. I'm cool with it.
My wife and i grew up kinda poor and make good money now.
Descided to live even more poor to free up funds for investing and avoid that frugal life.
Drive shitboxes but go see a movie whenever we want. Clothes shop on walmart or amazon and buy 4 movies while we are there. Etc...
She's great at budgeting and essentially we are paying for a cheap vacation and handholding in these classes. Idgaf.
If it doesn't work i'll save up another 20k and start poking holes in the ground for oil. And if that doesn't work i'll try something else.
mfw never had a lunch break before and work 10 straight hours 5 or 6 days a week.
what is coffee...
Lol. Saw it ona meme and cant stop laughing
Actually my favorite resturant is up for sale.
Only eaten the same 2 things for over 30 years there.
I regret nothing
The trick is to kill it and know it inside and out. Then hire a manager u can trust with the day to day and almost never even field a phone call about it.
Please stop posting.
Doctors are the ultimate wagecucks.
Running your own business isn't only for the ultra gifted it just takes commitment and hard work, neither of which are traits instilled into most kids so they end up going the wakey wakey ragey route.
There's nothing wrong with working for free for two years and then licking boots for another 35 just so you can drive a new Subaru and live in the suburbs as long as you don't mind other men engaging in sexual relations with your wife.
The reality is that the anons in this thread are all lazy shits who have never worked hard, have shit degrees or no degrees at all. and drown themselves in their delusions of starting their own business to rationalize their failures and lack of prospects
Am i the only one that finds corporate life demeaning af? Im young, tall and fit but i have to listen to these old cucks and fat women decide which days off I get, promotions..... Every time someone pushes back a meeting with me because another meeting came up all I can think of is that a few hundred years ago i could have rekt all these cucks. Every new day is an exercise to see how deep they can fist me. Need an out
lel, no he did, the worst thing you can do for someone like that is to give them money. hate you break it to you, but you probably just lead to that mans death.
congrats, cross 'kill a man' off your list. beat me to it ya fuck.
I work in a call center.
For ten dollars an hour I sit and stare at a screen and call people different as fast as I possibly can to ask them if they want to do surveys. If I stop for even a few minutes my supervisors yell at me despite the fact that I'm the highest productivity employee there and the person next to me blatantly sits there texting and makes $12/h while I just make $10/h.
If someone says yes I go through the survey with them on the phone. Depending on the project it either takes 5-10 minutes or 10-25 minutes. I actually prefer the longer ones because the shorter one is recorded and if I fuck up the wording on it whatsoever then I get punished. Hell, I've even gotten written up for "possibly sounding condescending" once. This is in spite of the the fact that most people you talk to deviate from the format more than a little and that forces you to deviate to bring them back, so it's subjective as to whether or not you've fucked up or whether or not you did what you should have.
Part of my job also ends up being tech support sometimes, mostly because I'm one of the only people there who understand how the systems work.
They said we're all going to be laid off by the 15th and they hired on a bunch of temps in the meantime. If they ask me to stay I'm going to ask for at least $13/h. Otherwise they can kindly go fuck themselves.
To be honest, I could actually do more. I'm just not going to unless everyone stops treating me like dogshit.
why do these still exist
ask for 20, seriously.
I don't blame you mate that is a suicide tier job
Guys I need some advice. I am kinda pic related, what should I do about that?
Too poor afford college
Don't want to fall for student debt meme
Make pizza for mostly wagecuck customers who are paid more than me, wagecucks nevertheless.
Taught myself HTML, CSS, Bootstrap and PHP. Hoping to do front-end web development but most baby boomer employers require a degree, claims that it "shows a commitment to the technology".
What can I do, all I want is enough working capital to start my business and work on my own terms where gross profit is potentially limitless.
Why do you think I'm losing my job, they're laying a bunch of people off so they can "shut down"
They're just downsizing and trying to get rid of the people who have been there for decades and get paid more to do less
My bosses don't make $20, this company sucks
Try to get into things your interested in and find people to hang out that way.
Getting /fit/ is pretty nice, though don't do it for attention or to make people like you, do it for you and for your health.
Freelancing. Start super cheap, build up your portfolio then either raise your prices or apply for a job
At least you wagecucks get to go home everyday. I'm in the entertainment touring buisness (aka roadie). You guys look at clocks when you get to go home, I have to look at a calendar. Its not a horrible schedule, usually 1 day of work and then one day off, mostly spent sleeping at the hotel. It was kind of fun at first but the novelty wears off quick. I miss playing vidya, I miss driving my car, I miss my friends and family at home. I miss home. At least I make good money but I dont have a fucking life to spend it on. And its nigh impossible to have a gf like this as well.
Only 4 more weeks until I get sleep in my own bed again ;_;
I work 45 hours a week, so I guess im a wage space to you.
I enjoy what I do and make a decent amount of money that let me buy my lake house that I live in year round.
I'd rather be a wage space who owns land than a true peasant (see renters)
