    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees about how the company can improve, I left because no one in management was concerned about the struggles I was having. I told them I was working too many hours with not enough pay. Their reply, work less hours. This made me mad, because I couldn't work less hours because I wasn't paid enough to pay my bills. Even with the obscene 14 hr days I was still in the hole, and I didn't have very high bills.
