More than 2,000 employees received a stake in the company because Chobani CEO, Hamdi Ulukaya, wanted to "give back" to the people who helped build the multi-million dollar yogurt company.
Hate your job? Have you considered just not going most of the time?
Apparently, Joaquín García, a 69-year-old Spanish civil servant has been doing just that for the last six years. He was fined $30,000 for not showing up to work when officials finally found out in the process of awarding him for 20 years of service.
García claims that he did show up to work every day but often left because there was no work to do. He was afraid that if he mentioned it to anyone he would lose his job without being able to find another one. So, instead of explaining his situation, he continued collecting his paycheck and started studying philosophy in his unofficial early retirement.
Felix used to be an everyday cat, just working her day job keeping mice at bay at Huddersfield Station in West Yorkshire, England. She was brought in at only nine weeks old to help take control of the pests in the station and she really grew into the role.
After five years of hard work she finally got the promotion she deserves. No longer is she a simple mouse catcher. She is now Senior Pest Controller, complete with the adorable visibility jacket, name tag and authority that goes with the title. Let's hope she uses her newly appointed power benevolently.
Production assistants who worked on blockbuster films such as 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' who were in charge of parking are now suing Paramount Pictures and other associated production companies.
The suit claims that they were not allowed to leave their assigned locations, which led them to start keeping "bottles and buckets" in their vehicles for any inevitable bathroom breaks.
On top of that, they claim that in cold weather they had to leave their cars running continuously but were never compensated for it. And they had to work 60-100 hours a week regularly while being paid a flat rate of $150 a day without overtime. They were also not given food on set during their 12-hour-on-average days.
The suit is an attempt by the PAs to get compensation for such poor working conditions.
