The Mentality Of Theft From Two Perspectives

For those of you who are participating in the pool to determine what day I would manage to write a post that alienates every person that reads it to some extent, December 19th is officially the winner.  Today I am posting about theft.  Not just the kind of employee theft I have written about in the past.  I am also crossing over into the far more pervasive form of legal theft carried out by restaurant in owners 44 states.  Not alienated yet?  The alternative that I am advocating would probably mean that you will be paying more for your next meal out.

My last post of the year might be my most controversial and thought-provoking yet.  I did not write it because I wanted to ruin my career.  I wrote it because it is an issue that I think merits a frank discussion.  Why is it that in 2011 there are trained and experienced service industry professionals cleaning toilets for $2.13 an hour?  I think it is a reasonable discussion and one that should inspire comments into the new year.

That does not mean this site is taking a hiatus for the rest of the year.  Starting on Wednesday I am going to follow the lead of every other form of media and count down the top ten posts of 2011 as selected by an elite panel of people I run into and have an answer to, “Hey, what do you think I should put on my top ten posts of 2011 list?”  I could lie and say that it was based on some highly scientific method, but I am working overtime trying to get on Santa’s good list this year.  If you have a suggestion, leave it in the comment section below.
