Retail Comic | A Comic by Norm Feuti

It's a comic strip by Norm Feuti regarding the lives of low wage workers, and simultaneously poking fun at, but also seriously criticizing the way retail and fast food workers are underpaid, overworked, and abused by both management and a rude, overprivileged public.

When I used to work at wal-mart, and came home feeling like I had been tossed in the garbage several times, and treated like a fly to be squashed by both customers and managers, I read the latest retail comic, and it helped me know that I wasn't going through this struggle alone, that there were many people who saw the absurdity of the capitalist abuse of the proletariat here in the usa, and that the tide was slowly but surely turning in favor of the workers.

He's a capitalist profiting through the hard work of others, he thanks you for helping enrich he and his family.

Please explain what you mean by this.

He is drawing this cartoon in order to increase awareness of the abuse and mistreatment retail workers face on a daily basis, for a paycheck that is not enough to support them. Sure, he may make some money off advertising, but he has a wife and daughter to support as well.

You sound like you have a pretty deeply seeded personal problem. My I suggest making an appointment to speak with the Chaplain? Or maybe you could get your 15 minutes of fame by trying to eat 100 hard-boiled eggs.

I used to feel undervalued, overworked, and underpaid. Then I joined the Army.

It's more or less the same thing, but now I get to be told that I'm worthless every day until I make Sergeant.

FYI - Some people couldn’t get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if they smeared their bodies with clue musk and did the clue dance while singing the clue mating song.

I never was told or felt that way after bootcamp, I was treated as a young, need to prove myself professional. But then I did join a respectable branch, the United States Navy.

That's because both technically and officially, you are in fact worthless, that is until you make sergeant, and then you will begin to slowly elevate in worth. And, don't you ever forget that.

Well I could see why the Navy got that positive reinforcement, what with all the goat stuff you have to do.

So are you part of the "rude, overprivileged public."? Or have you moved to management?
Or are you still an underachiever expecting a free ride in life?

I also served in the United States Military, as an Army combat engineer.

You realize that your boy Mao starved 15-30 million poor people to death, right? And these weren't those darn white 'Publicans that you rail against, these were poor Chinese people.

....or die.

Actually, there are EIGHT political parties in the Chinese government, far more than the two party monopoly here in the USA.
