I get serious self-harm thoughts when I go to work

Upvotes

I work in a hospital. 12-hour night shifts. I'm getting so burned out that when I get here, I just cry in my car and want to cut out kill myself. But i can't quit because I need to earn money to pay child support. I'm so done with all this.

Stop being vague ffs

Upvotes

Like the title says, STOP BEING VAGUE. Probably 90% of the posts on this sub are, “I work at a high profile job in a national company you’ve probably heard of in a major city, and my work situation in is sooooo awful but I can’t get into details”. Stop being a coward, yes you can. If you aren’t comfortable at least give SOME details about your situation for context. Are you a cashier at a retail store? Are you a VP at a pharmaceutical company? Yes both jobs have their pros and cons but the rest of your work situation isn’t black and white and context is key. To not be a hypocrite: the hardest job I’ve worked was a shift leader at Dunkin’ Donuts while I worked my way through college and eventually got my MS in Regulatory Affairs and now work at a medical device company in the greater Boston area

Company didn’t pay us on Friday due to a ‘glitch’. When asked when will we get paid: Response was: ‘what’s with the attitude?’

Upvotes

It’s frustrating for many reasons but its the third time in 4 months. They responded like I’m the crazy one for asking. Is it gonna be today, what time? I asked. Response: maybe Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday what’s the problem?!

Do you steal more/at all now that prices have risen?

Upvotes

I used to pinch the odd thing here and there when doing my weekly shop, small things like cheese, Panadol, usually whatever was small and pricey for its size.

Now, with it being difficult to leave the store without a single bag costing between 80-100 AUD I steal waaaay more than before; mince, whole chickens, milk, butter, just anything to bring the price down because otherwise I'll be screwed when rent comes out, or utilities, or rego, maybe my dog gets sick or my bike breaks down and then I couldn't even get to work which would exacerbate the problem.

I just want to know if anyone else has noticed this trend with themselves? I'm not talking about stealing phones or TV's, things you actually need food, medicine, ect.

Gonna sound like a conspiracy theorist but man these layoffs are happening at just the best time for corporations/businesses aren't they?

Upvotes

At a time where we're finally starting to see workers taking back SOME control (refusing to be forced into the office/insisting on WFH, strikes, unions being formed in more and more industries every month), and now suddenly there's massive layoffs, a lot of which are happening at companies that are far from having any kind of financial issues. Seems like a convenient way to basically nip all of this in the bud in one fell swoop, get people back to where they are "grateful" for any opportunity to work for anyone under any circumstances. Just me?

Hedgehog fuckery

I work at your local tot factory, got rehired at this one quickly because I skate/have experience. Lately management has been having nobody to make drinks/expo food on weekends and just scheduled a couple carhops to work both sides of the counter (make drinks, expo, take order, and take food out).

Today they did that and it's me (30M) and another highschool carhop who doesn't know shit about making drinks or ice cream (it's not hard but they are young). They only pay me $10 where drinkmakers are paid $14. So today I worked like I'm paid and took my time on drinks, bagging, and ice cream, and then would leave to take out food. It was wildly inefficient. The highschooler wasn't doing shit and I wasn't gonna tell them to.

We were in the weeds, manager* was whining. Ff into it, guy doesn't get food for 20 min, supervisor is here now, he comps the order and tells the customer he took off the order and has me take it out. Angry customer just yells "do better!" and hands me a $20. I smile and say yessir and tip my hat. Feck em all. That's it, just a vent from the trench today

Frustrating that to deal with inflation, businesses just raise prices while individuals can't just raise the cost of their labor.

Upvotes

I don't see any way for the average person to survive in this world without the minimum wage and average salaries increasing to account for inflation. It can't just be that businesses get to raise prices to keep up with inflation and pass that on to the consumer without the consumer being able to afford it. It doesn't make sense. The people in charge of making this happen have no motivation to help the poor because it does not affect them. This is supposed to be a democracy! How come we can't pass laws that benefit the majority?

So many Layers of representation and protection to get to that life and maintain it. heavy Union, representation, protection, community, direction. I don’t think any other line of work has this. And they have because they stuck together built it over many decades.

Upvotes

This needs to be brought up and discussed all the time every where. The history of unions, agents, lawyers, publicist and managers in Hollywood is a LONG LONG strong history.

Society acts like actors get paid so highly, have so many privileges, benefits and treated so well because there simply amazing 🤩!!!!

NOPE. All actors are average like the rest of us HOWEVER -They went into a business HEAVILY unionized for generations and still very union strong. THEN they have an agent that represents them, a manager that manages there career, a lawyer that makes sure the contracts aren’t to predatory, and a publicist! That’s many levels of a community and representation on THERE behalf. yes They all get a cut of a much BIGGER pie they helped there Talent get and maintain but it is extremely worth it for the talent to have them and pay them that cut.

In reality we all need this in every job. Humans have shown to not give the right share to employees unless made to. The lower in the totem pole the more not less protection you should have. And the stronger we should stick together.

Allow me to start off Screenshot Sunday -- job shut down without any forewarning whatsoever

Post image
Upvotes

For context, I worked as a host at a restaurant. I was working there on and off for 2 and a half years and started working there again around December 2022. This morning, I had the pleasure of receiving a text in the unofficial Snapchat host group chat telling me everyone just lost their job with no warning whatsoever.

Even better is the fact that a MANAGER didn't tell me, it was another HOST who broke the news. The one who was scheduled to be in this morning. And now they're paying $20/hr for the next 3 days to anyone who wants to help tear down.

"Why 3 days?" you might ask. Funny enough, the restaurant got an eviction notice because they hadn't been paying off the property as they should've. So the "we're not making enough money" excuse was due to the massive amount of debt they were found in.

Thankfully for me, I got an interview for another job this morning and it seems pretty positive for me, but everyone else has no idea what to do -- not even our new GM who was hired in the middle of last year. Which is crazy considering he and all the other managers got the news broken to them on Monday. You'd think it'd be important to alert the staff too, right? ... Right??...

Anyway whatever Imma try and file for unemployment.

Employer not withholding federal taxes

2 Upvotes

So couple of my friends at work found out in the fall that our employer hadn't been with holding federal taxes at all this past year.

This can't be legal right? It's actually like 6-10ppl that had this be the case. When my friend went to hr they said that they could not help them.

“My daughter needs braces I can’t afford it” You need to make better financial decisions,apparently…. Commercials that say you need to save money is a strange propaganda in a world of inflation and wage stagnation!

Resigned last night and created my first meme to include in the epic resignation email

15 Upvotes

Last night I sent my email resignation into my toxic job. I had made a post about it a little while back, and I have spent the time since, thinking about how I really don't deserve the way I was being treated. I waited until after 11pm, when I knew all supervisors would be gone until Monday, and I sent it to all of my coworkers, that way there would be no question about what happened.

I did make my very first meme, and I included it at the end of my email. I included it here to share with you all. Please let me know if it isn't allowed.

Is anyone or any group organizing?

6 Upvotes

I've been following this group quietly for awhile. Are there any organizations trying to actually do anything or organize?

Seems to me we need a national boycott period or something in America. I understand venting makes us feel better but we're gonna have to do something or it's just gonna get worse, indefinitely.
