“One time I was so sick I couldn’t go to work and I couldn’t take care of my daughter either.”
I was faced with threat of being fired if I didn’t show up for a shift when I was ill.
“One of the things we have realized is that just because the income stops, doesn’t mean that the bills stop coming in.”
I sprained my ankle…I was limping around like Quasimodo across the dining room…
The boss started to make a lot of excuses to me…like if I take the days he’s going to fire me.
I was unable to take family leave even though I was sick and should not have gone to work
There have been times when I’ve had to go into work with the flu or with a hurt back…
When it’s banquet season you may have 4, 5, 6 straight days where we’re doing 11 hour shifts. So eventually that…wears on one.
