  • Unemployement

    It sucks that so many people I know are out of a job. I mean it's just tragic...I see certain "people" at my job who don't deserve their job and yet they have one and more deserving people don't. I've heard of people who can't seem to catch a break when it comes to finding a job.

    Sorry for ranting..but it's just that one of my ex co-workers was fired and now he can't get a job..and he is a swell guy who did NOT deserved to get fired.

            My seasonal job is coming to an end tomorrow. The ski hill where I work at is closing for the season a little earlier this year due to a lack of customers... a sign of the times. I'm one of the lift attendants, but fortunately, I'll have a few extra days the following week to help with clean-up for the summer. I'm going to have to start looking for "career" work again. I'm also thinking about going back to university in the fall; something I should have done a couple of years ago and I could've been sitting here with a 2nd degree half completed.

              It really sucks to be unemployed. I am currently collecting unemployment, and there's always a chance that it could be cut off or stopped.

              Another thing people don't realize, and i kind of understand, is what my wife is going through. She is the head of her department and is being forced to choose two people to get rid of, plus cut back on other expenses. She also has to cover shifts of the hourly employees because the hospital has suspended overtime so she puts in 50-60 hours a week on top off deciding who to get rid of and its not easy. Plus with other things going on outside of work, it's a wonder she hasn't gone completely bonkers!

                If he was fired, then he doesn't deserve the job. Did you mean he was laid off? Two very different things.

                  No he was fired..but it was for political reasons which I can't say too much about..but put it this way..had certain people stuck up for him he wouldn't have been fired

                    I was laid off at the end of August last year, and have been unemployed since. I've been looking for a job and having absolutely no luck. Thankfully, my husband works and I qualify for unemployment benefits, but it's scary. This is a rotten time to be looking for work, and it's hard all over.

                      And they said in the news there's an economic recovery happening. I say BS to that.

                        We had a similiar thing happen at my work. One girl was laid off and another moved back into our department. Well, the one that was moved back didn't react all too thankfully for still having a job. We were all so miffed at loosing a team member and gaining someone who just complains constantly. Thankfully, she didn't show up to work one morning and we were able to hire back the girl who was laid off.

                            I too am unemployed. Have been. I have a job curse that follows me around. I find a good job, I get hired, I get a good number of hours every week for about 2-3 months, then my hours get cut in half, 2 weeks later, cut in half again until I have no hours and they say that they aren't busy enough to give me the hours I deserve, but yet everyone working there is complaining about too many hours.
                            Been turning in 2-3 applications per week since early July and only 2 interviews.
                            It's sad because funds are getting low now and i don't even buy anything!
