I am not sure what to do , or how to handle a work situation. I am a florist for a small greenhouse, earning an hourly wage. I was asked, after our landscape designer quit, if I would design landscapes(thats what I actually went to school for) besides keep doing the floral work. My boss said, that if I saw the client, designed, and sold them the design and he didn't have to deal with it, I would earn 7% commission, which can add up fast. It was a great incentive, and since my wage isn't really high, it was a great "add on". I sold 5 jobs in one day, all smallish, but would give me about an extra 700.00.
Now, my boss says, since I was not on the job site, directing the guys(Remember, I am the florist in his shop...so I have to be there...I am the only one) that I will not be getting commission on these jobs. I feel used....for what I know how to do well...and while he made money, I actually lost it. I used my own vehical getting to and from clients, my own camera, paper, computer, and some of my own time. It was not up to me whether or not I could be on site.....in fact my boss went with them one day, and he can do floral too, but he chose to go and had me stay. Am I wrong in this?
My hubby is upset, and says that if I am not paid for the commission, I can no longer work there.
