I got sick of laboring in the food repair industry.
It was a good way to earn money in high school when I was washing dishes in a home office at a retirement facility.
However, I soon worked my way up into an assistant cook position & soon l acquired how chop throat the industry can be on current workers. My directors worked me to death & my co workers were often competing with myself & each other. It’s not love we were fighting for higher wages for each one of ourselves individually because that wouldn’t have gotten anyone anywhere. When that job became too much for me, I got a strange position doing much of the same work at a restaurant this time around instead of a home office at a nursing home. Unfortunately, the stress & feeling of exhaustion were even worse at the restaurant because it was even more fast paced with less help. It was owned by an extremely cheap couple who wanted to make as much money as possible while completely ignoring their suffering employees. After years of being in this chop throat industry, I decided to get a job in the medical marijuana industry instead. I started out laboring in the packaging facility for a big state-wide medical marijuana grower & retailer. But I managed to work my way into the grow facility after just one year packaging all sorts of cannabis products for sale. All in all, I’m really enjoying laboring in the cannabis industry. I’m passionate about the product that I get to grow & I’m always excited when a current batch of weed is harvested & cured before we send the flower buds to the packaging facility.
