I have a friend who works for a guy who does not pay his employees overtime. Im not aure how he gets away with it. My friend is on call every weekend. Works 40 hours a week, sometimes having to take a saturday or sunday to a customers place of business to fix a down sales computer or register.

Like I stated, my friend does not get paid overtime, however his boss makes him charge his customers double for weekend service.

I know my friend lacks self confidence, and is really bad at interviews. I have tried to help, but he does not think he can get any better.

So when I read this above original post, I see a owner just like the one my friend works for.

Lack of proper tooling, leaving his employees to look up alrernative ways to get stuff done, and types of machines available. Im not apologizing for what I see.

Neither is the business owner….he has to make money or close down, how he does it is HIS business. As to your friend or the OP of this thread, they stay there for a reason and that is their business. The bad, bad business man is not twisting anyone’s arm to force them into slave labor. Do these employees not choose to get up and go to work everyday???
There are all kinds of reasons people have the job they do…maybe your friend likes it, maybe he’s a convicted felon and cant get a job elsewhere, maybe there are “perks” you don’t see, either way it’s his deal.
Before I retired I managed 26 people. Now I have a bunch of rental houses. Both jobs involved cry babies that wanted things their way…I told the employees that chronically complained the same thing I tell tenants that want everything perfect: When you get to the point that you can no longer stand it here please leave and don’t worry at all that I am going to be upset!!! They would all get the same stupid look on their face and then realize that they were just politely told to “get the ….out!!!”
As to the original question…I am thinking re-saw band saw.
