Working for The Dallas Morning News has been the most challenging experience of my life. The owner of the company and people who don’t work along side us have NO idea what the working conditions are like. It’s a terrible work environment and they are supremently and stupendously hands off and no desire to try to cater to the workforce, which we have to privately build ourselves, to provide stable wages. I officially work for the “home delivery” side of the company, we aren’t compensated for use of our private vehicles, which we use to drive for many miles and many hours to deliver their products, or for use of our own personal devices as the Morning News does not supply us with reliable means to even do the job properly. To get to the point, the job pays the bills.
No compensation for anything, no days off, 7 days a week, no hazard pay, no...no anything, really.
