I got terminated!!

So I got terminated because a new company took over where I was working, and I did not get paid like I was supposed to. I informed them that I'm not returning to work until I got paid and they fired me. I was only there for two months and did not think that I could file for unemployment.

Using "Ageism" to Your Advantage!

You have seen me post about it. You have seen me comment on it. I honestly didn't believe ageism was a real thing; until- it happened to me. It is devastating, confusing, upsetting. (As if turning 50 isn't bad enough, its 50+ and unemployed (some of us for the first time in our lives!) and the depression that follows is debilitating.

Tried everything

I've applied everywhere, I've been unemployed for the past 6 months, all of which I've spent searching for a job to keep my bills paid during college. I've resorted to getting money from my parents which I hate. Not sure what to do anymore.

I don't get sports economics...

Ok. I like when owners share profits with players..... but.....I clearly dont get just how profitable sports are. $430mm for a center fielder? I am all for rewarding exceptional contribution, etc - but does this level of compensation make sense to everyone?

Have degrees want what worth

I've got Masters in business management and been doing gas restaurant and grocery store assistant Manager jobs and paid 13-15 an hour. Is it bad to ask for more many when have operations manager experience and alot more experience that just an assistant. I was to advance and make money so don't have worry pay check to pay check. So is it right for me go after what I'm worth.
