Submitted for your approval:   Your boss has multiple businesses and among them is a store with a lottery terminal and scratch-offs.  He gets the state commission on every sale so it's like paying 95 cents for every dollar in tickets he can give out instead of cash. 

Stipulated:  You can select your own numbers or choice of scratch-off.

How many lottery tickets would you accept as a percentage of your pay?

        Absolutely NONE.   My performance isn't by chance so neither should my pay.

        When I worked for lottery store, our boss would put in Powerball tickets as little extras..  Would have been nice if the little extras had turned into a SOMETHING BIG EXTRA... I sure would have split it with her..

            I prefer to choose whether or not to play the lottery on any given day.  I sometimes go weeks without buying a single ticket.  I wouldn't want to accept tickets as part of my pay.  I like a sure thing for the hard work I do.  Anyway, who can trust my boss?  Confused  I voted none.

              Taking pay in Au or Ag ... my kind of thinking. LOL

              In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
              Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.
