I am not an owner, I am an employee who is on salary, which means I don’t get a percentage of the profits from the cannabis dispensary
I yearn for the aged nights, when medical cannabis was hard to acquire. I was the store employer for a state-owned dispensary, & I was as bored & lonely as the aged Maytag Repair Man from the cable commercials. There were some nights that I had zero customers during an eight hour shift! I did a lot of learning back then, & even took a couple of corporation classes online so I could put in for a promotion. Two years ago the voters of this state decided to change the laws. Now the rules for medical & recreational cannabis use are easily relaxed, & my boring nights in the dispensary are a thing of the past. I can no longer put my feet up & study a book, because there is always a long line of people waiting to come into the cannabis dispensary. I feel more like a bartender than a budtender, because the cannabis consultations seem to never stop. Things would be different if my pay went up. I got paid the same amount to do nothing as I do now, when I am legit slammed busy all morning long at the cannabis dispensary. I am not an owner, I am an employee who is on salary, which means I don’t get a percentage of the profits from the cannabis dispensary. I either need to renegotiate my contract with the state, or start putting in resumes at other cannabis dispensaries in the area. If I’m going to have to labor this hard I need a lot more money.
