As a store manager (fast food) I unlike some others here, believe you have a good.chance of getting unemployment. If The store has cameras they should be able to see if you were the one who stole money from the drawer. I think the manager simply doesn't want you on the team. The manager was probably hoping you did take the money and by firing you for it, hoping you would not push the appeal. In my opinion, unless your manager can actually prove you stole money, you will win. I would like to suggest that you learn proper language and writing skills. That can improve your chances for better employment opportunities in your future. These days customer service is huge, and if you communicate with others like you write, quite honestly, your chances of landing a new job will be very limited. Use the time you have while unemployed to take a class in proper communication. That's my honest advice. Good luck to you

Oh T baby, I know the feelings. The tensions of living beyond our means, and the drama of new management. This is truly getting screwed and not enjoying any part of it. I don't know of any legal actions available to you, and I think you have to have 3 or more 'pay day loans' to have an arbitrary service assume them on your behalf, usually costing you about half the original debts. I'm not telling you to get two more because you have had to have made at least one payment to the loan bastards before it qualifies for negotiations. But I do hope you find other employment real soon so as not to increase the nightmare that may be forming. Oh, and T baby, reread your posting. The grammar and word choices. It all sounds very exciting to me, but may seem guttural to others. Many company's have policy regarding garnishments, and lay-off or fire the individuals. It has happened to me, and in actuality, it has now happened to you. If there is someone above your GM who is approachable, suggest you replace the $39.00 having it stricken from your records (even though you didn't steal it), and assure them you will not be required to undergo garnishments. Company's have all the leverage on their sides during this recession and seem to cycle through us employees as if we were wheat to be harvested. Never minding what get tossed away in the process. Best to you T baby, as hard as this seems, you will survive it. Respectfully, Philip M Brockman

Be realistic. It's a low chance you may get unemployment if the employer contested against it. Even if you appeal it. Best thing for you to do is start sending out those applications and start looking .

Baby, there is a lot here. You can see in your story that you were unhappy when the previous GM left, which possibly carried over to the new GM. You signed up for a pay day loan, which probably wasn't smart, and when you got confronted you appear to have been confrontational and defiant by not acknowledging any wrong doing, and refusing the write-up, which is your right to do. The new GM possibly couldn't get you on the loan issue, so they terminated you, and when confronted, they said it was because your register was short. I would definitely appeal the unemployment issue. I would also speak with a free legal consultant or lawyer to ask about your rights. Also, never use a pay day loan facility, as you will get in a hole so deep you will never get out. Good Luck...

First off, payday loan companies prey on the desperate and get them into awful situations like the one you're in. They're nothing but loan sharks. You'd be much better off paying your bills late than getting a payday loan. With that said, your company absolutely should not have a say in whether you get a loan or not. Secondly, with the pattern of behavior, it sounds like your manager was trying to push you out. When you didn't sign the writeup, she fell back on something completely different to be able to get you terminated. Good luck with your appeal and getting a new job (and stay away from payday loans!) God bless.
