I went to work today like any other. I work/worked for two brothers that owned two companies. First thing this am, I did payroll; for both companies. Then took care of all the payroll taxes; for both companies. Made out the transfer of money to cover payroll. Then moved onto the payables and took care of all those; once again for both companies. Once done with the payables, made out the deposits.
On Fridays I'm there by myself. The dispatcher has the day off. So in between all my regular duties I answer the phones and dispatch a couple of trucks.
At quiting time, I shut the office down and as I opened the door to leave one of the brothers said "What do you think about going on unemployment"
My response "Why?"
He replied "I just dont have any work, you'll make just as much on unemployment."
I responded "And I suppose you want this to start Monday?"
He replied "Yeah"
I responded "Thanks for the notice" and closed the door.
After 8 years of me being loyal to them, missing 4 days of work, forgoing raises for the last three years, doing more than was expected of me, working on certain things at home in my own time with out any compensation... I felt like I had been punched in the stomach.
I didnt cry until at dinner when my hubby told me he would be working again tomorow (Saturday) and Sunday since we would need the money. He also worked last Saturday and Sunday. So how many days in a row will that be for him without a day off?
I have no idea if this is temporary or permanent. I have no idea when my insurance will end. I have no idea where I'm headed right now.
But the one thing I do know is, I will survive although I'm very angry and the number one person on my list is GEORGE BUSH.
