Heh....I actually worked there when these individual contract things were introduced.....they were basically sold as "look we're not gonna schedule/pay you overtime anyway....as it costs too much....but if you sign this new contract it means you'll get more hours and not be sent home....but yeah we're only gonna pay you standard rates while you're here"..... I was only getting 1-2 shifts each week anyway (as I was about 10 yrs older than anyone else) so I signed basically knowing what was going on.....as for what a 16yr old is understanding of the situation......I guess it's pretty obvious which side benefits most from the deal......I guess that complimentary RISK game evens things out for me......

Let's face it, TRU is like the banks- record profits by screwing over customers with charges/prices and maximising profits by screwing over staff. Gotta love capitalism hey :p
