I used to work for the devil himself. A corporate financial type that sits in a comfortable chair and does nothing all day but yell at others, pays his workers 30-50 % below the standard national average wage, and fires them when they ask for a raise. And gets away with it. When it was time for me to ask for a raise, and he said no, I took the whole department down with me and cost him a pretty penny. Serves him right, I'm sick and tired of corporate greed and if we don't stop it, nobody will. We need to fight corporate oppression by not putting up with it anymore. Salary does not supersede dignity. Not to me at least.

Check out my story!

Fortunately, he's still a millionaire, but you're still a pathetic poor looser,

These two words are related to “lose” and “loose”, two words often mistakenly interchanged.

“Lose” is the opposite of “win”, so a “loser” is someone who has lost.

“Loose” is the opposite of “tight”, so “looser” means less tight.

“Loser” is a noun and refers to a person. He is a loser.

“Looser” is an adjective that describes the condition of something. I wish these pants were looser.

Please don’t use lose or loser when you mean loose or looser. - See more at: http://writingitrightforyou.com/home/2012/11/10/loser-or-looser/#sthash.HcqKfIWg.dpuf
