WHEN a naive woman posted a job ad, she didn’t get the response she was perhaps hoping for.
In fact, people stoned her for her post and thought it was some kind of joke.
The woman posted in a community Facebook group calling for “someone looking to learn gardening and housebuilding skills” to help with her “very developed” property over the weekend.
In her post, this woman lists the multitude of household chores that the job entails: “planting and weeding in the garden, creating flower and herb beds, clearing hedges, pruning trees, moving rocks, build beds, build chicken coops, rabbit houses, huts, and quail cages …”
She also requires workers “must speak English, know how to use a chainsaw, feel comfortable on ladders” and ask for resumes and references.
But the one who really pushed the woman’s post was what she offered to pay for the job.
“Wages will be paid $12/hour, part cash, part harvest when it starts,” the post reads.
Many people believe that the amount of work is not equal to the woman’s salary.
One comment read: “That’s down to 6$ an hour and some vegetables maybe in the future. She needs a family member to help with this crap. Few people think this. that this is a good thing.”
Another commented: “People don’t want employees they want slaves. This is gross,” while another said: “Do your best, Tom Sawyer – you do your own thing.”
And a fourth wrote: “Is this a joke? Come do the manual labor for me. I will pay you a low rate that is not fully endorsed because ‘a part cash and part product that I value’ is definitely not $12 an hour.”
The job poster applauded the criticism with another comment: “Clearly, some people are too good to work hard, and instead of mocking ‘part cash and part product’, they want to start a war again…
“Very obnoxious people have clearly missed the part where anyone who will take the job will learn valuable skills that others PAY for classes in…
“It’s a WELCOME job, take it or leave it,” the woman wrote.
Meanwhile, one woman trained as a “stroller doll” until the pandemic hit, after which she proved all her critics wrong by becoming a plumber.
Also, another woman quit her job at 24 and now makes $124 million a year selling clothes online.
