Our county's annual United Way drive is coming up. My employer really "encourages" us to give our "fair share." Now, I don't really have a big problem with most of what United Way does, but I prefer to give my money to other causes and to my church. My manager comes around every year with our little pledge cards and gives the little speech about it being a good cause and all, and how much will you give? Well, number one it isn't anyone's business what charities I do or do not give to, and number 2, much less how much I give.
I guess the real thing that gripes my butt about this whole thing is that my employer will match every dollar given by employees. My thought is, if they can afford to do that is why can't the nurses and CNA's have a raise?
Anyone else in this situation?
