May I just point out how grateful I am that Carla had the January challenge and that I have some money saved! This is why …
Yea A temporary layoff, really ?! Yet they had hired three girls these last pass weeks but are laying us off? Because they made to many products without orders and instead of just cutting down hours they are just laying us off for a week. I’m just like “Whaa. Like wtf, like WTF. (And then other inappropriate words to follow and of course worry and sadness and freaking out.)
The good thing is that I have all my bills but my koodo paid for February thanks to the January challenge (See tab at top of page) and some money saved but still. If I hadn’t, I would have 80$ from now until February 17th. (Well actually the Thursday after Feb 17th, whenever that might be.)
I don’t even know what to say anymore, you know when you have just had it with someone ? Regardless if they are your employer or not. By all means I’m not bashing them, I just think that after 2.5 years it’s time for a break, I’ve gone through hell and back working there and now just want a better job. I can list a name of things that this job has caused me and they go from the physical (Broken finger) to the emotional (mild depression due to shift changes and grave yard shift.) I just feel like, I’ve done the crap and now can someone cut me a break ?
I’m so angry too, I wish I had known a few days earlier I would have skipped school to work, I have other things to pay for, dog food to buy, 80$ for 2 weeks (NOT including my birthday or valentine’s day). On top of all this my Boyfriend works with me, he has even less money than me. CAN ANYTHING ELSE GET WORST? Oh even better in the letter they said we should apply for employment insurance, and that this might happen again. Unemployment isn’t even an option either since I’m a student I can’t get that. Thanks russet.
Oh and What about the people who have kids, own a house and a car that they all have to pay for. It’s not fair, I feel like we should be entitled to further of a notice or at least our 4% (Which I right now have 500$ of my 4% but can’t have it until may due to that’s when the time period is till. Like thanks. That’s my hard earned money, I feel like if you guys can cut off work randomly we should be entitled to have our 4% whatever the time is or the amount is.
So anyone know of any jobs in the Huntingdon area ?
