Another mass quit event at a store hit the headlines again in Nebraska first it was a Burger King and now it's at a Family Dollar Store in Lincoln, NE. The reasons both gave was poor working conditions, low pay and poor management.
It appears that workers are feeling empowered to say, "Take this job and shove it." I've worked jobs in the past that haven't been perfect but I needed the work and I put up with the conditions for the paycheck.
Have you worked a job where you put up with poor conditions just for a paycheck? Do you feel empowered today to walk off a job if you faced the same challenge?
Worst place I have ever worked for, I was there for a year then my shiftlead got me super angry and I threw a dust pan at her and walked out, then dumb me, came back to work there a year later and that lasted about 2 months when they wouldnt give me a day off, mind you i had just blown up my truck and was riding my bike to my 2 jobs I was working, almost 70hrs a week to pay to rebuild my vehicle, so that's were it all ended never showed up that day, legend has it I might try for a 3rd time!!🤷 But no... It's ok to work there the owner just sucks 😜 #foodservices #stimuluscheck #benefits #nationwideusa #advice #florida #hiring #healthcare #resignation #linkedin #uber
I tried to get unemployment after having sadly to resign from the employer I was with. Note that it was due to serious legal issues. I had to report the employer to the state after many months of trying to have a change made. It involved the life of a precious child that was my patient. I was denied due to the fact I had quit the job. But I had no choice. I did what I am legally required to do under the oath I took and under the law. How is that grounds for denial? I filed an appeal almost a month ago. No response with an appeal date still. Lost my transportation, almost 40lbs, and my ability to have faith in the system at this point.
I know my situation is just like so many at this time. Its so sad to see so many losing homes, careers, the means to provide for those dependent upon them/us.
I have found new employment and was hired 9/16. Unfortunately they have not proven to be on their a-game thus far and the onboarding process has just wrapped up as of 11/01. After my 1st full shift I ended up in the hospital for 4days. This company is now making me feel like they can't depend on or trust in me and I don't know if or when they will put me back to work. Not to mention they just so happened to not submit my time for payroll so I am fighting to receive my pay from them and still maintain a positive professional relationship with them to keep employment.
