NYC Realtor Offers Employees Pay Raise For Getting Tattoo Of Company Logo
CBS New York ^ | April 30th, 2013 | Emily Smith

If your company offered you a pay raise to tattoo its logo on your body, would you do it?

A New York City real estate company made the offer and dozens of employees are getting inked.

As CBS 2′s Emily Smith reported Tuesday, a tattoo can be a way to show off your personality. For Rapid Realty employees, it is the fast track to a 15 percent pay raise if you get inked with the company logo.

There are no size or location restrictions. Brooke Koropatnick got hers behind the ear.

“I had a paycheck coming in what was a substantial amount of money different, so it was nice,” she told Smith.

Stephanie Barry got tattooed two weeks ago and, along with it, a permanent pay raise for every real estate transaction.

“I was like, why am I throwing my money away when I could give myself from a $25,000 to $40,000 for the same amount of work?” Barry told Smith.

The credit doesn’t go to Rapid Realty owner Anthony Lolli. He said he got the idea from a loyal employee who wasn’t doing it for money.

“He calls me up, he says ‘Hey Anthony, I’m getting the logo on me.’ I show up at the shop and I’m like ‘this is cool, how can I repay you?’” Lolli said.

A 15% raise is a powerful incentive.

Stupid people. I hope they go out of business. I’d be looking for a new job.

No restriction on size or location??? How about the bottom of your foot to show what you think of the idea while collecting an extra 15%?

If you do get it, don't walk off the job later on. You might not get another one.

I’d do it. Even though I am a portly, middle-aged male, I’d get a tramp stamp. Whenever I have one of those plumbers’ butt moments, my company pride would be on full display.

and do you abide by ALL the old laws, or do you just pick and choose which laws are ok to break, and which you can condemn people for?

Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.

I've always known that instinctively without being reminded by the Creator.

Isn’t that like saying, “We’re making so much money I can easily afford to give every single one of you a 15% pay raise right now. But first you’ll have to do something really stupid and degrading. Dance, maggots, dance for my amusement!”

Wonder what type of tattoo one would have to get if they worked for the AB Dick company?.

“Is the company logo “666”?”

Eventually some undocumented guy will want to divide the land of Israel, be hailed as some sort of “messiah” and have an idiotic cult following that will do and believe whatever ridiculous thing and lie that he says. And they’ll happily get that tattoo.

Imagine living close to those times.

I worked on a construction site with them. Every summer they would have notices everywhere inviting people to the “Big Dick Picnic.”
