Is this an employee Obama wants to pay over $10 an hour to do a job?
thank goodness they’ve legalized pot
Caution: it hurts to watch it!!
It’s no better at 50 secs than it is at beginning, if you want to save some time :-)
I worked in a twenty storey building. We had a custodian who, as part of his job vacuumed the elevator lobby. He would also vacuum the elevators. He started on the ground floor and then went up a floor where he would vacuum the second floor lobby and each elevator once again. Same thing third through twentieth floor.
The elevator cars were clean
Thanks for posting the video.
While I would never want to overestimate the intelligence of the average Wal-Mart employee, this looks more like something they put together expressly for You Tube.
I watched it and I see more snow (visibly more) at the end than the beginning. Had this snow been wetter and less powdery, the cart would hold the snow.
I’m not saying that’s what he was depending on, but you can look at a plain kitchen sifter as a loose parallel. It will hold flour until the scraper sweeps by.

Duh....I once ‘knew’ a guy that lost his job as elevator operator because he couldn’t remember his route....
I also ‘love’ it when with 1 floor down and 3 up, someone will hop in the cab and when someone says we are going down, their is a scramble to get off as ‘we’ are going up....
their is a scramble

‘’’there’’’ .....spell check???? I don’t think I did that...
When I worked for Dawn Foods I used to spread flour on the floor to sweep up salt and sugar.
Grains don’t sweep well and the powder helped a lot.
“When I worked for Dawn Foods I used to spread flour on the floor to sweep up salt and sugar. Grains dont sweep well and the powder helped a lot.”
Same thing works for chopping fresh rosemary when cooking. Do it on a lightly floured surface and it doesn’t stick to the knife and can be chopped micro small.
This is a fraud......set up to go viral on the net!!!
Don’t you guys get it?
If you paid $20/hour, you would get better qualified workers and they would do a better job and things like this wouldn’t happen.
If you paid $20/hour, he would have more money to spend on things and that would be better for all of us.
If you paid $20/hour, he wouldn’t have to work as much and he would have more leisure time and could perfect his snow shoveling skills while on vacation in Aspen.
Raise the minimum wage now! /sarcasm
Actually, that's true. Or, more accurately, you would have a far better chance of hiring and retaining a qualified person.
Used to train franchisees. Tried to get through their skulls that the cost of labor consists of more than the cost/hour paid to an employee. It's your total cost to accomplish a given amount of work.
There's the cost of training (and retraining), cost of dealing with mistakes made by an employeee, cost of additional supervision required by less competent employees, average production per hour, etc.
On average, all of these other costs go down, or at least have the potential to go down, when you pay more than minimum wage.
Few of them ever got it. Employee wage rate is easy to track, so that's how they "controlled costs."
The Obamanation will obviously take credit for this “shovel-ready” job. :)
Haha! um, no. Though that is sweet of you to graciously attempt to defend the indefensible. But sometimes you just have to step back, not interfere and let nature take it's course. ;-)
Go back and look at the video at the beginning and compare it with the end. There is more snow in the basket.
You can be as sweet as you want, but you can’t say it isn’t so, and that is really all I was saying. It depends on cohesion of the snow.
union worker trainee.
Either that, or as one commenter on the youtube page suggested, perhaps somebody dropped his keys somewhere around there.
