Exactly. Where I work, we get a staff discount of 10% off all goods. Customers still have to pay full price, so I suppose my discount is unfair? Tough. I work damned hard, and a few niceties here and there are more than well deserved.

Your whole "more important things to be concerned over" doesn't make any sense. Concern over one issue does not affect the other issue

It's not unfair but it is kind of dinky
10%? Most places I have worked are 30 to 50% discounts.

Oh kay think we are having a bit of a communication error here buddy.........sounds to me like you are nit picking over something that really doesn't need it's nits picked.

All I was saying was that this fella is complaining over something that I find a little trivial where as there are other things that could be complained about in order to be constructive in this forum.

Anyway....not gonna get into a long debate about it I guess I will just chalk this one up to experience and not bother engaging in social chattings of the chit variety with your personage.

Relax man!!

All of these style comments are missing the point. Its not that they get a perk of the job. Good for them. Its that those who paid for it should have those codes.

I'd go as to say as a matter of law, we are entitled to them. At least in England. But they know we wont both to take action. So of course its going to irritate people when they dont get something they paid to have, when they see others flouting the system.

say let them they need something good from avery poor paying job, any plus and alot neg in that line of work is something.

The max I have ever seen is 20%, any more than that and they might as well give it to you for free. I'm not sure what kind of company you've worked for, but mine is in business to make money, not lose it!

Retail and waiting tables. In any job I have ever had in any of those businesses the discount was never less than 30% and a discount that low was unusual. Most of those jobs were 40 and 50 %. One Pub I worked at did not give you a discount per say but you got 1 free meal per shift and as long as you did not abuse it you could comp 2 drinks a shift for giving to customers.
