This is all too frequent. I work at a job in a college town (not Tucson) and have worked long and hard to increase my wages through performance. I also get commissions and have icreased my commission split through performance. But now I'm finding they're trying to push me out the door and I'm sure it's because they can hire a student at $9 per hour, no benefits, and they have to start from the bottom and work their way up until they get to where I am. The sad thing is they're trying to get rid of me by contesting FMLA for a medical problem they say doesn't exist despite the fact they have found me passed out at my desk twice! I understand the younger genteration needs their chance too, but what's wrong with working up to it the way people my age did when we were that young? Believe me, you appreciate anything you have to work hard for all that much more.
