I am beginning to think it’s an unwritten rule... In every corporate job I’ve had, they held an annual Crusade of Mercy/Employee Diaster Fund donation drive. Each dept has 1/2 hr meeting, we watch sob-story video about 3 people whose lives were devestated. “And your generous payroll deduction will help others.” After the meeting and snacks to perk you back up, you get to sit down with your boss. She has a pre-printed payroll deduction card with your name and several amounts ‘suggested’ for your fair share. First job, this happened. My boss says, “So how much are you donating?” I said, “None?” I felt that was my choice. I didn’t know it was expected to pay something. She gave me a stern look and said, everyone pays something. I could do a $1 every payday. “We have a dept goal.” I didn’t budge. Those who have are expected to take care of the have nots.
