Thread regarding Phillips 66 layoffs

Wage Disparity

Isn’t it amazing that we have several members of the ELT making 10s of millions of dollars per year, that UPS workers got almost a 40% pay raise recently, and it looks like auto workers will get at least a 30% pay raise if not more, yet most of our employees have gotten between a 3-5% pay raise this year? Total inflation since COVID has been almost 30%. In California, starting next April an entry-level McDonald’s worker will make $41,000 plus benefits, which is probably more than we will be paying contractors in India who are replacing US-based employees.

Regarding the original poster's assertion that a starting McDonalds worker in CA makes 41K, Indeed dot com says that the avg wage for a McDonalds worker is actually $14. Barely enough to live on if that's the best you can do for a job, and I'm sure the money is well-earned. Please check your facts. Take a trip to CA and you might be surprised to find it's not nearly as bad as you may have been led to believe.

I’m going to take a guess and assume the previous poster is just a big su-k a-s.

I’m going to take a guess and assume you’re a lousy employee. Go get a new job and make a contribution. You’re a leech who just who wants more without actually giving a reason to earn it.

We are not asking too much. The ELT is amateurish and buffoonish. Especially the CEO.

You’re asking for too much. P66 has a lot of lazy employees

It is very sad to see American jobs being outsourced, but American work ethic is deteriorating along with attitudes. Perhaps if we try harder to produce quality products while minimizing costs, the leaders of the organization will want to reward our hard work.

So many people that I have encountered in my job, have bad attitudes and want to see their peers fail. A majority of them want to do as little as possible and get paid top wages. In my opinion the more money you make the more responsibility and workload you get. Perhaps my logic is wrong.

I wish P66 was moving in the direction of enhancing employees’ quality of life and producing products that add value to our lives. The ingredients for a symbiotic relationship are present, but intangible factors such as attitude, work ethics, and moral values hinder the relationship.
