Worked Over Something Awful

America, where pulling yourself up by the bootstraps is a bit difficult due to all the sharp bootstrap-cutting objects lying in your path.

A Tupelo woman hired earlier this month by a KFC was fired Monday after the franchise owner discovered she’s homeless.

Eunice Jasica has been staying at the Salvation Army lodge since early December after losing her job, her car and her home.

The nonprofit organization requires its residents to seek employment daily and, upon finding it, to pay for lodging and start saving for a place of their own. Jasica said she had been job hunting for months and was relieved to find work on March 11 at the KFC on North Gloster Street.

A document signed by that location’s general manager on March 12 confirms Jasica had been hired to perform “prep work” and would receive a paycheck every two weeks.

But when Jasica reported for duty Monday, franchise owner Chesley Ruff withdrew the job offer upon learning she lived at the Salvation Army.

“He told me to come back when I had an address and transportation,” Jasica recalled. “But how am I supposed to get all that without a job?

Firing someone you hired because they don’t have a place to live when the entire reason they took the job was to be able to afford a place to live, and you don’t pay enough to afford a place to live?  I’m betting Chesley Ruff is a lifelong Republican.

Luckily, this story now has a better ending.

A woman fired from a KFC in Tupelo for being homeless has found a new job and an outpouring of support.

Eunice Jasica was tentatively hired Tuesday by On Time Transportation to shuttle Medicaid and Medicare patients to and from doctors’ appointments. She still must complete the final stages of her application process but should be on the job by early April, said the company’s office manager, Yolanda Baskin.

The much larger problem is America is largely designed to keep poor people poor, and ridiculously rich people ridiculously rich.

    And has at least one decal or sticker on her SUV (I’m gonna bet the big Lexus) identifying her as a Christian, and does that scrunchy-eyed thing Dumbya used to do when she prays in front of people

    This is one of those Charlie Pierce “guzzle anti-freeze” moments until you get to the happy ending.

    PS: At her new job she’s doing something better by taking people to see the doctor than providing them with the salt-encrusted junk food that gets them sick in the first place.

    I keep wondering when enough is enough. Decades of union-busting, increased productivity with a flat (or declining) wage (and salary too), and the highest levels of corporate profits ever seen.

    Yet, people are told that this is just the new normal, that this is how it must be in the “new economy.” Maybe the bread and circuses (e.g., “The Voice”, “American Idol”) is working this time.

    Chesley (must rhyme with Presley) is going for the Daily Double, adding an age discrimination suit:

    He later told The Clarion-Ledger that the real reason he didn’t want Jasica was her lack of food-preparation experience and her advanced age. The job requires heavy lifting, and Ruff didn’t think she could handle it.

    Jasica is 59.

    The fools who buy into franchises spend hundreds of thousands and need in the range of $1.5 mil in net worth to get fleeced by corporate grift. They have some protection from low margin scams in that they can’t be forced to participate, but they agree to implement new products and usually have to buy expensive equip directly from the franchiser. They pay a royalty on every gross dollar earned, not profit. KFC probably has a contractual obligation written in, which involves employment policies, and is the source of the problem.

    There was some asshat on TPM or Maddowblog (can’t remember) last week, smugly declaring that the main difference between rich people and poor people was their money-management skills, and he was absolutely certain that if you gave them equal amounts of money, within a few years, the same ones would be rich and poor.

    I’m sure he thinks he earned everything he has on his own with no help from anyone, too.

    The part that I like is that since, as TFA helpfully points out, Mississippi is an at-will employment state, meaning that you can be fired for any reason or no reason so long as you obey the various antidiscrimination laws. So Chesley Ruff of Tupelo, Mississippi was perfectly within his rights to fire (or un-hire, whatever) this woman for being homeless, but now that he’s changed his story and says the real reason was because he thought she was too old to do the job, he’s maybe open to an age-discrimination lawsuit.

    There’s something to that if you remember that money management is a skill that needs to be taught and not an inherent virtue. People who are never taught those skills probably will not be very good money managers any more than putting someone who’s never learned how to drive behind the wheel of a car and sending them out onto the freeway will magically make them a good driver.

    Of course, when you point that out to people like that, they magically become deaf because they really do think that money management skills are some kind of genetic inheritance and not a teachable skill.

But the poor can’t get contingency lawyers for employment suits (usually–I mean, not desperately poor women like this lady, but I have seen barely-hanging-only-middle class with longer tenure at their job do it). So the law also fails to impose the shall we say “discipline” which has caused all of the big fat companies with middle managers who can afford lawyers to enact sexual harassment policies and non-discrimination policies with teeth. (Some of these companies also did enough research to find out that a welcoming, diverse work environment leads to higher morale and better work outcomes, but you see in Tupelo, they have Jesus. Not the real* Jesus, who probably would have agreed with the prior statement, but down-home-Baptist-grifter-Republican Jesus.)

    That’s probably true statistically (moreso if you cherrypick the self-made comfortable, less so if you go with inherited wealth), and there’s nothing smug about it. Poor people who have grown up poor don’t engage in the sort of long term fantasizing/planning that wealthy people do. Wealthy people, in fact, have a tendency to hoard cash because so much of their identity is wrapped up in a figure. Poor people who come into money sometimes are prepared. But sometimes they may poor financial decisions because of a variety of reasons–obligation to family, simple ignorance of the tax code (less common than you think), getting poor financial advice (very common), overhanging bills/issues from when they were poor, poor health, and finally, the old impulsive behavior.

    Yes there are people with poor impulse control. Hopefully that will be less of an issue as the EPA and other government agencies on all levels do the good work of lead abatement. And as bipolar disorder is more widely recognized and people across society gain access to mania-controlling drugs. Truly rich people with poor impulse control are often shielded from the consequences of their actions, but I will concede that the very wealthy tended not to suffer as acutely from lead exposure. I’m sure there are exceptions. (Like living in one of those old houses with lead pipes and lead paint peeling on the radiator, because it’s historic.)

    I’ve seen plenty of people who traded away a little financial security for a NEW car. Could have gotten a lightly-used 1 yr old car that was just as good. Could have cleaned up and restored a 10 yr old car with new parts/interior for half the cost. No. New. Made a mortgage payment for the salescreep. Huffed those volatile organic compounds. Worked three jobs to pay the payments, ruined their back, lost one of their jobs due to absenteeism, ruined relationships because they didn’t get any sleep and started acting stupid. (No, sleep is NOT optional!! I’ve watched you on 3 hours nightly and you’re a fucking idiot!)

    For some people who will never own a home, whose only retirement is a pension plus social security, I guess I could see how a car would be an affordable luxury that would please them… but I still think people get ripped off. They go to the dealership, pick up these glossy brochures, obsess over how this car will give them status/pleasure, spend hours spinning rationalizations, and ultimately trade away their freedom for nothing. If it’s an American car (and it’s always an American car) it kills you bit by bit with bad parts that need replacing, or it gets in a wreck and you’re still paying payments on a heap. Or you get sick and miss a paycheck and all of a sudden you’re walking to work.

    They say willpower is a limited resource. The working poor often have their willpower all used up. They buy into the fantasy of the NEW car. And even cruel reality won’t beat that out of them.

    Which is far from saying they deserve to be poor. What rot. After WWII American workers got middle class wages and they entered the middle class. They didn’t stay poor. Most poor people care about their children’s future and will do whatever they have to do for them.

    @Amir Khalid:

    When Eunice Jasica filled in her job application, she’d have listed the Salvation Army lodge as her temporary address, right? So Mr. Ruff would have known that she didn’t have a permanent address yet.

    Here’s what probably happened: Mr. Ruff, needing the help, willingly overlooked the obvious implication of Ms. Jasica’s Salvation Army home address. BUT THEN, after a couple of weeks, one or more of his customers recognized Ms. Jasica as someone who was living at the SA, perhaps from having driven by there in the morning or evening while Ms. Jasica was hanging around outside there mixed with other homeless people taking shelter there. Word then got back to Mr. Ruff that some of his customers were becoming aware of Ms. Jasica’s situation, and were a bit icked out about what this implied about the quality of people he had working there (the image most securely non-homeless folk have of people residing at the SA is not one of habitual good hygeine). And so, Mr. Ruff makes a pragmatic, albeit hard-headed/hearted decision that the need to preserve the attractive image of his business outweighs (at least temporarily) his need for optimal staffing. And from a purely hard-headed pragmatic business standpoint, he made a rationally sensible choice here, albeit one devoid of any moral courage.

    So, while not absolving Mr. Ruff for hard-hearted moral timidity here, LET’S ALLOCATE A SUBSTANTIAL PART OF THE BLAME WHERE IT PROPERLY BELONGS: Mr. Ruff’s local customer base in Tunica, regarding whom Mr. Ruff was very likely correct in fearing too many of them would get icked out and flee from further patronizing his restaruant, because of their presumption about the low, unhygenic quality of “homeless” employees he had working there. Before any of you start feeling too self-righteous about the KFC-eating citizenry of Tunica, Mississippi, be honest: have you never shied away from eating at a particular fast-food franchise because you felt a bit sketchy about the hygeine of the place? What’s unfair here is the likely presumption of Mr. Ruff’s customers (once they found out she was homelss and living at the SA) that she was therefore an unhygenic, icky person unsuitable to be involved with restaurant food handling.

    @Ben Franklin:

    KFC probably has a contractual obligation written in, which involves employment policies, and is the source of the problem.

    I’m dead certain that KFC does not require employees in general to have a car, considering how many KFCs are in cities where people do not generally have cars. That would be a _really_ silly policy at the corporate level.

    Now, I’m sure KFC does ‘require’ employees to have an address, in that when franchise owner hire people they have to put them in the KFC system and that assumes they have an address (And trying to interpret that as a _policy_ instead the employer just putting in ‘N/A’ would be general asshole behavior.)…except, of course, this woman _did_ have an address.

    I’m sure Mr. Ruff would _like_ to be able to blame this on KFC policy, but it’s not. Instead, he decided to blame it on age, opening himself up to, as was pointed out, an age discrimination lawsuit. (And lack of food-prep skill, but it’s worth pointing out that ‘food prep at KFC’ is not something that _anyone_ knows how to do who has not actually worked at a KFC before. It’s not a goddamn cook position, it is rote movement of putting things in fryers and watching timers and wiping down surfaces. You are _trained_ to do it.)

    Oh, and even if she didn’t have an address, and there actually _does_ need to be an address (For example, if all checks are mailed from a central office and can’t be picked up at the franchisee.), then the solution is to say ‘Look, we really need to put an address here. Do you have any friends or family we can mail stuff too? Can you rent a PO box? Could we put down the store as your address for a month or so?’ or something like that, not _fire_ her.

    Interesting fact: Hey, you asshole managers. This is called _management_. The employees have a job, and it is _your_ job, as managers, to make it possible for _them_ to get their work done. Their work is the work that pays the bills, your job it make sure that _their_ work goes smoothly, and if it is not going smoothly, it is your job to fix that.

    If the work is not going smoothly due to employees being bad at it, it is, indeed, your job to attempt to get them to do it correctly, or, barring that, get new employees. If, OTOH, the work is not going smoothly due to random problems you can easily solve, whether it’s a back door that keeps latching itself or a stupid procedure that is just wasting everyone’s time, or a line on paperwork that can’t be filled in, it is your job to _solve that problem_.

    It is not your job to badger employees who are actually doing their job or introduce some sort of moral calculus about the homeless or whatever the fuck you think your job is it.

    An interesting theory except for the fact that he terminated her before she actually started working there. He is now trying to argue that he never actually fired her since he never actually hired her, but she has documentation of being hired.

From what I remember, people had to go out every day and look for work, follow a curfew, and behave orderly. So cleanliness is never an issue.

    About money management-you have to have money to manage on a regular basis. It’s hard to plan with temporary jobs and low salary work that can end at any moment.

    And buying a new car isn’t as irrational as it looks. A new car is less likely to have hidden defects where you buy a car and then find out as soon as you take it off the lot, there’s an expensive problem that needs fixing.

    Another Halocene Human says:

    @Mnemosyne: There’s something to that if you remember that money management is a skill that needs to be taught and not an inherent virtue. People who are never taught those skills probably will not be very good money managers any more than putting someone who’s never learned how to drive behind the wheel of a car and sending them out onto the freeway will magically make them a good driver.

    See, I disagree. Basic money management skills are very simple. So when you ask, “Why don’t the poor acquire them?” you’re asking the wrong question. For the most part they do have these skills. (Sometimes even from watching their parents fuck up and swearing they’d never do that.)

    The issue isn’t that (although it would help if they taught every high schooler how to balance a checkbook instead of farting around with stock picking and calling that a money management/finance class). The issue is not having the spoons, or the hope, or the resources to think past the next paycheck. The issue is punitive measures from the public and private sphere that throw you into debt for the littlest screwup–only annoying for the middle class, and the hyper-wealthy get treated the opposite by these parties. The issue is rent exceeding income, getting taxed on “income” you never saw (like mandatory tips tax, or tax on work uniforms–thanks, IRS). Unexpected bills there is no cushion to absorb. Helping hands that won’t offer anything until you are destitute and beyond.

    There are lots of financially comfortable people who are utterly terrible with money but make enough income to cover their mistakes over and over again. Hell, I had an uncle like that. He was cleaned out twice while living, once when he was dead, and still had money left over because he was a genius as a farmer (those who know what I am talking about will realize how remarkable this is). But, you know, he had to inherit land and lots of it to be able to ply that skill. When you come into this world with nothing in this country, your earning power is limited.

    @Another Halocene Human:

    That’s probably true statistically (moreso if you cherrypick the self-made comfortable, less so if you go with inherited wealth), and there’s nothing smug about it. Poor people who have grown up poor don’t engage in the sort of long term fantasizing/planning that wealthy people do. Wealthy people, in fact, have a tendency to hoard cash because so much of their identity is wrapped up in a figure. Poor people who come into money sometimes are prepared. But sometimes they may poor financial decisions because of a variety of reasons–obligation to family, simple ignorance of the tax code (less common than you think), getting poor financial advice (very common), overhanging bills/issues from when they were poor, poor health, and finally, the old impulsive behavior.

    I don’t disagree, but that’s really another way of saying that in addition to denying the privilege that having savings and family resources to fall back on, the person writing the original comment was also denying the privilege of having grown up in a healthy environment with good schools and parents who could teach you about money management, etc.

    @CarolDuhart2: Re: the new car. I would have frowned on the idea of a new car for the working poor, but your comment reminded me of something I actually know: the working poor only have so much money at one time; they probably don’t have a cushion in a savings account. So while they may be able to budget a steady payment, they can’t pay a big repair bill. That being said, when I was among the working poor, I never bought a new car – and I was occasionally out of a car and had to ride with a friend while I saved money for a repair. And I learned how to do quite a few repairs myself. Perhaps a better choice would be to buy a late model used car and an extended warranty? That would insulate against repair bill shocks.

    Is this ever true. We wound up buying a new car, a ‘leftover” from a previous model year, with a three year warranty. The money they gave us to take it off their hands was a down payment in itself. If one is better able to budget monthly than saving up for unexpected whopping repair bills, it’s a far finer solution.

    You all misunderstand the difference between explanation and justification (or absolution). I agree that Mr. Ruff was damn wall on ample notice of her living situation when he originally hired her, but I’m dead-spot on about what his motivation for changing his mind was: fear about how his customers would react to finding out that a homeless person living at the Salvation Army was working food prep at his restaurant, due to their own fears and prejudices about what people living there are like. He hired her because he thought he had a food prep employee slot that urgently needed filling; he discharged her because after initially hiring her, he began to fear how customer reaction to having her work there might adversely impact his business.

    Correctly understanding the probable dynamic behind his decision is not at all excusing his lack of moral courage here. My problem with the discussion here isn’t with the unanimous disapproval of his choices and actions, but rather with the failure to recognize that the context of blame is much broader than Mr. Ruff; it extends to the prejudices of his customer base in Tunica regarding homeless people. Yes, they have showers at SA, and yes, many of the residents maintain good hygeine despite the challenges of that living situation. Perhaps Mr. Ruff should have been brave and upright enough to take a chance here to buck and enlighten the prejudiced portion of his customer base, but at the same time it’s Mr. Ruff taking the risk here, not you. It’s easy to be smugly self-righteous in condemning Mr. Ruff with nothing at stake yourself.

    It actually is somewhat astonishing how the managerial class has become incredibly lazy in this country. Like it’s their god-given right to sit around and get a paycheck for doing nothing at all.

    But what do we expect when companies stopped attempting to actually produce goods and services that others want to buy, and instead became operated entirely in a fashion designed to make the stop price go up and down randomly so the smart people investing in the stock market can make money investing in the stock market? Because, as far as _I_ can tell, that is how corporations now function in the US.

    I strangely often find myself nodding along in agreement with the far right people 99%. There actually is a class of worthless moochers in this country, an entire ‘moocher class’, and their worthlessness has even managed to infect other people, and it is destroying this country. Those statements are entirely true.

    Sadly, it’s the _rich_ that are worthless moochers with an absurd sense to entitlement that they don’t have to work at all, and their worthlessness has even managed to infect _managers_. The system isn’t rotting from the bottom up, it’s rotting from the top down.

    Look, if employees in a business draw _actual_ outrage from customers, I can somewhat sympathize with letting them go, even if they have done nothing at all wrong. I think it is cowardly and harmful to the business, and often illegal, and standing up to bullies is a better choice both morally and in a business sense, but I can _understand_ the business logic.
