Terminated without warning

Hi folks. I was wondering what can I do about my recent termination. I was a sanitation tech for a major drink distributor in my area. I was contracted to work there. I did my job for 2 and a half years with little to no complaints. None of the people I started with are there any more. They have high turnover rates and most people have quit and a few were fired.

To make a long story short. Our point of contact person was a small Indian guy that…

Sharon you can do better than that. Offer some real help.

Defeat Ageism Discrimination!

I’m an unemployed 53 years old struggling to re-enter the workforce after an unexpected layoff from my last job. I’ve been landing a decent amount interviews but I have yet to be convincing enough to seal a deal with a potential employer.

My vast years of related experience speaks for itself on my resume but I still can’t help thinking managers are second guessing my ability to learn new skills and quickly adapt to the demands of the workplace…

How well said. Hopefully the decision maker is smart enough to see your value to the company. Best of luck!

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. I was in the hospital from June 10th- June 13th. So I got cleared by the doctors on June 13th although I did rest for a few days before I tried to see if I can go back to work at the restaurant. Then I went to the restaurant on June 17th to try to go back to work so the employers/management…
