My Boss Is Blessed for Supporting Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am 65 years old and started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. Over these past 20 years I--and those who have supported and helped Falun Dafa practitioners--have witnessed the power of Dafa.
Boss Increases My Wages Five Times in a Short Period of Time
I was looking for a job where I could work and still have some time to study the Falun Dafa teachings and let people know the facts about Dafa. I thought that a night shift would suit me.
Another practitioner told me that the hostel where she worked was recruiting and asked if I was interested.
When I went to the interview, I told the boss about Falun Dafa and the persecution. She was quite happy to learn that I was honest and kind and said my salary would be 1,200 yuan a month, even though she'd told the other practitioner before we met that it would be 1,100 yuan.
I try to consider others first when I work and help as much as I can. As time went on, more customers registered at night than in the daytime.
The boss's mother said, “We hope that you will work every day. As long as you are here, we seem to have customers.”
Some customers told me that they liked to wait to register when I was there, because my managers didn't seem very helpful or friendly.
By the end of the third month, the boss told me, “From this month on, I will pay you 1,500 yuan a month.”
As time passed, my boss, her son, and her elderly sister learned more about Dafa and quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). She started to repeat, “Falun Dafa is good” every day.
My boss likes to tell me everything about her family and wants to hear my opinion. She hopes that I won't quit and said, “Starting next year, I will raise your wages 100 yuan each year.” I am already earning 1,900 yuan a month and got a 1,000 yuan bonus at the end of the year, while the other employees only got a 500-yuan bonus.
Blessed for Supporting Dafa
Another practitioner who used to work at this hostel was arrested in 2013. Local practitioners hired a lawyer to defend her. After my boss heard about it, she wanted to help and gave me 500 yuan.
Our hostel was full for three days after she gave me the money. My boss and her husband were very happy, but they also thought it was strange. She said, “It's the off-season. I wonder why all the rooms are full?”
“Because you help Falun Dafa practitioners,” I replied, “you are blessed. That is the power of Dafa!”
I arranged for the lawyer to stay in our hostel. My boss insisted on not charging him, but the lawyer felt guilty if he didn't pay. In the end, my boss decided to only charge him half the normal price.
Whenever the lawyer rented a room with us, the number of people wanting to stay in the hostel would sharply rise.
Our hostel sells cigarettes and drinks. In the past, my boss would display enough products for the night. She wrote down what she put out and checked the next day what had been sold against the cash in the till. When I started working, after a period of time, she no longer checked the till because she trusted me.
My boss and her husband bought a new apartment, so the room next to the reception desk became a storage area and break room, and she kept the keys.
One day she gave me the keys and said, “You go and fetch things when you need to top up.” Soon after that, she told me where she hid the money in that room and said that I could go and get some if I needed change.
Every day before I left, I would give the money and sales records to my boss's mother. She then gave them to her daughter. I thought my boss would check the money and records, but I learned later that she never did, because she trusts Dafa practitioners.
