    Unless Omro, WI is in the third world it's hard to image a stampede of qualified applicants, snowflakes or otherwise, willing to work for the wage offered. Here in my rural PA area convenience store clerks start at $10 plus benefits.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    $9-$15 an hour is living high on the hog in most small towns in WI including the town I live in.

    The majority of factories in my town pay that wage.

    Convenience store clerks/fast food workers here are at minimum wage and no benefits. Benefits are only offered to people in a managerial position at those places.

    yep, couldn't get away with "understand their place..." in a big city ad. But the country is moving towards the day when Snowflakes are a protected class, and the ad would be doubly illegal.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I understand exactly what that means. Was at Safeway in a big snowstorm last year. Poor assistant manager told a young girl bagging to grab her coat and collect buggies as they were almost all out. She says "but it's cold out and I don't want to because it will ruin my shoes".
    His reply was classic - "well I hope you don't ruin your shoes looking for another job".
    We clapped, she cried and headed out to get carts.

    She didn't understand her place, but was put there rather quickly.

    The wording is a bad sign. The writer seems to expect a problem worker to show up. The boss will alienate the worker and the worker will get a bad attitude.

    No, asshole boss. A leader would have said, "well let's go together." Then explained to her to bring a different set of clothes and also how that wording she used could be detrimental in a job setting.
