Around the world, governments are beginning to explore ways to safely re-open the economy. As a result, people are preparing to head back to work.
As we start to take steps towards bringing normalcy back to our lives post-Coronavirus, what is concerning YOU as you either A) enter back into the workforce or B) resume your job search?
My Step dad and I worked at Dunham Price LLC in Westlake La. They said they where downsizing. So they laid off my stepdad. The only other person they laid off was me! It's been about 2 months and still, just him and me. I tried to tell them I have nothing to do with him. They kept saying that they were just downsizing. I said to them, " this is discrimination!" They said if I wanted to get upset, well then they wouldn't pay me for the rest of the month either! I had to bite my tongue. I'm a single mother that was doing a great job for them! I think it's wrong! I needed that money. I'm having a hard time finding a job that even comes close to the money I was making. I was finally going to get my son and I out of a negitive living situation! They r just heartless, and my main point it was discrimination by association!!
Can you get unemployment being laid off even though you were only considered a Part time employee.. My wife was there for 18 years?
I think back at age 22 when I enlisted into the Air Force. I was told to only bring what I was wearing - bare minimum. Throughout the weeks ahead I was built up mentally, physically, and emotionally. The Problem I showed up on scene amongst a majority of guys fresh out of high school. Having 3-4 years experience on them also created more previous experiences = baggage I brought to bootcamp that I did not leave at home, and much that I accrued throughout my failing times at college. Instead, I allowed the new me to be created on this shaky foundation that replicates my identity - underneath the toughness they can build in a soldier.
Now is the time to go back a time or two each day - to do some self reflection - and say okay, this is the ideal point in my life to regain balance. To pull back on my spending habits and better manage my money. To enjoy what I do have so when I get back what I don't have I stay in tune with all I currently have. To maybe learn what finding stillness means to close my eyes and focus on my breath for a minute and to just be. To find experiences of letting go of judging everything as it comes to mind and begin to feel what taking control is as I gently guide myself to focusing on my breath - in and out.
If I shift one degree to the left or to the right - I will end up at a new destination. Like cybernetics on an aircraft that continually reorients on its azimuth - so can we.
Let's dig down and lean in and turn some of these ongoing wishes and wants into new habits. We can go through it or we can grow through it.
And most of all - May we all realize in trying times that relying on God as all we have - we come into realization God is all we need!
When you want to QUIT!!! HALT Hungry - Am I hungry, then get something to eat and make this decision in another moment that presents itself a little later. Angry - find your way of venting and releasing any built up energy and animosity/resentment Lonely - Get on a device and connect with someone - or invite a neighbor for coffee/tea. Tired - Honor your current limitation and get some needed rest.

I'm in Dyer need. My company was bought out and I was one of the ones at top. I worked very hard to become warehouse manager. And now I don't know how I'm even gonna pay rent. I am loyal, hard working and above your average everyday worker. I can learn anything!

I was laid off two months ago. I'm a single father and bought a house last year. I'm stressed and worried now. I've been on a few interviews but haven't heard anything back recently. I haven't received a response back even after calling and emailing the hiring managers.
