Too good to be true !!!

I was working and doing ok. I payed my rent and kept up my bills. Then in a crosswalk I was hit, broke foot, permanently damaged tendons nerves muscle etc. I'll never be able to work on my foot again. I have a lawsuit in motion, I'm on my way to eviction and lose everything I worked for, credit wise. I'm so screwed, I'm not sure why I'm writing this to you out there. Things can't get much worse. I don't want to fade away or die !! I've tried…

Gratitude: The Trait That Defines Perspective

Hey Jobcasers,

Today I'd like to talk about something that seems a little difficult in our search for the next best employment opportunity: Gratitude.

Gratitude is perhaps one of the most difficult things to muster up during a rigorous and harrowing experience such as unemployment, homelessness, and similar events, but I would argue that it is perhaps the most important thing to muster up--more than hope, more than tenacity, more than even…

Employment Yields Many Benefits

For most of us, being employed means that we can pay rent or a mortgage on our home, have a car, buy groceries, wear nice clothes and the means to spend on the things that we like to do. We can all agree that financial responsibility is what a job brings, but are there any other benefits that we can enjoy?

Employment benefits a person in many different ways besides financially. It benefits your mental health…

Question

My husband's part-time job had a mystery shopper report. The company said that it is an automatic write up if it's bad and everyone gets written up. One item they put on the write up was him not smiling. He had two strokes and it is no longer an automatic function on him. Can they write people up based on a mystery shopper who is subjective? Can they include him not smiling as one reason? He had to relearn to walk normal and write after the…

Thanks for sharing

Discriminated by employer

So early last month I was sick with asthma/bronchitis and I was in the hospital for three to four days/nights getting treatments, taking medicine, whatever.

Then I went to the restaurant on June 17th to try to go back to work so the employers/management…

Senior seeking employment.

For most of my career, I was a transportation specialist. The road took away from me more than it ever gave back in terms of my health. I never slept right ate right or got enough exercise. I developed type two diabetes and suffer from arthritis, however over the past several years I have made considerable strides and am considering entering the job market but so far have been unsuccessful. I am a self-starter, relatively intelligent, honest and…
