Angry Beavers,
Have you simply tried asking your warehouse workers in person? Probably way more effective then us speculating.

This is a very good point.

If anyone but the last person quits or if this scheme (for lack of a better word) ends abruptly, there are going to be a lot of hurt feelings. I don't see this ending well.

Tough call, but if they were my direct reports I would probably consider telling them to knock it off before someone gets stabbed in the parking lot.

I did question it and their reasoning is they think it net's them more money over the course of the year. I tried to explain to them it doesn't but they did not believe the Gringo...

Well, it will likely net some of them more money over the course of the year.

I think overall it's not a bad idea for those guys. Yeah, it makes no economic sense, but I'm sure when those guys bring home a paycheck the entire clan is in their pockets. Might as well delay a payday that their brood doesn't know about.

But someone gon get shanked if there is a missed payment. There goes your companies safety record...

It's actually something our VP is concerned about now that he knows. Not sure the best way to get them to stop.

My sister (no pics) is a pharmacist. One of her biggest surprises when she started work was her colleagues' complete lack of financial skill and restraint. They would build a big house then complain about the utility bills. But the biggest thing was cars. One would go buy an new, loaded Acadia, and everybody else would rush out to do the same. A year later one would go buy a Lexus, and they would all go trade their year-old, sharply-depreciated Acadias off on the same model Lexus.

I rather live paycheck to paycheck while driving a Mercedes than a malibu.

So I just found out that 10 of my warehouse workers do something very strange with their money. Every paycheck they all put $100 into a pool and 1 of them gets the $1000 every time. This repeats every pay day and they rotate so the next person gets the $1000. They are convinced that they are gaming the system by doing this.



My wife's family is from the Caribbean and this is very common but with a larger amount of money and less people. It's called Sou-Sou
