The US employee's exploitation is due to following Referring to: 1. Habitually low pay raises or better yet ..NO pay raises for multiple years. 2. Requiring employees, exempt and non-exempt alike, to work more than 40 hours a week w/o overtime? 3. No bonus what so ever 4. Even when they fire employees on bench; they do not give any severance package. 5. The HR department is virually does not exist , employees can't even ask questions about their salary ? 6. Ever increasing employee's % contribution of healthcare insurance .. I think now employees pay most of it and company just chooses the vendor.
