Hi. I want to seek for you guys opinion.
I’m currently interning at a company and i broke something that belongs to the company. The boss is now telling me that he will -$100 from my salary which is already like 20% of it.
Yes the item that i broke is worth more than $100, but he didn’t even hesitate to say that the deduction will be $100 , seems like a common tactic he used for previous interns that also broke stuffs.
Just wondering what should i do ? and whether is it okay for companies to deduct our salary.
Should i speak to my intern liaison officer about it ?
It sucks to know that all the company cares is about $ and is already paying us slavery salary
Here are what netizens think:
- Wahhh everyone roast you. I’ll praise you instead. You didn’t ask your parents to pay for you!!!! Major achievement unlocked. Probably the next best thing to include in your cv to show some company-assisted accountability.
- Internship is short-term. Just complete the internship and and leave. Don’t let $100 affects your internship evaluation. Not worth it. You might end up regretting if pursuing the matter further.
- Internship ALLOWANCE is called that for a reason, not salary. They pay it out of goodwill, you are there to learn and gain experience, not earn salary as a normal full time job.
- I also break something at my internship, I break my V
