The trick that companies play on employees, is making them believe they will have a spot forever. They make it seem as though they love your work and will always choose you in every scenario. The moment they can hire cheaper workers, you’re out. I don’t know what it will take or how long it will take, but you need to put yourself in a position of power. Make sure at some point that you never have to work for someone every again. As long as someone else is signing your checks, and clocking you in and out, you will always be a slave. Lets end this way of life immediately.
