    Be mindful of your day to day tone. Remember, people are dealing with things you may know nothing about. Always be kind.

    They work with me so I can do extra curricular activities, the longer you work, the more personal time you accrue, great vision insurance, great short and long term disability insurance, great life insurance.

    More positive reinforcement as well as more opportunities and incentives would be appreciated. Higher wages helped retain people - $15 would be a living wage.
