'Horrible boss won't give us the holidays'
June 17 is a holiday for most but not for us. The boss always complains that this country has so many holidays it's ruining his business.
On rare occasions, he would grant us the holiday then offset it by taking a holiday on a regular day to avoid paying more. This has been the boss’ practice since long ago. We’re lucky if we’ll have three days off during Eid.
He doesn’t care about staff. In fact, it seems he gets a high when he makes his staff suffer, making them work overtime without pay, no holidays so we can’t plan to be with our families, not giving the annual benefits, changing rules when it’s time for our increment, etc. We are treated like trash.
