28. Those places are just the bottom of the bucket
The only redeeming quality those kind of jobs have is making people feel fortunate that they don't work there. My wife recently got a job with a business that treats her like a human being and I have never seen her so relieved.

I'm not sure if there is any reason behind why they treat people so horribly. I think they would do even better business if they treated people well.
