Hi. Long story short, I need to ask for help with this month’s rent. I take care of my disabled sister, and have 45% custody of my son.
I just started a new job at a car wash, but only got one week’s worth of hours and won’t be able to meet this month’s rent.
Current pay at the car wash would just barely keep the bills paid. If I had the $1500 for this month’s rent, we’d be okay, but being a month behind is almost impossible to get caught up on.
The reason I ended up in this situation is because I was offered the opportunity to work for a major insurance company with salary and commissions, but had to get licensed first. I took the 120 hour course, passed, and was hired. Once placed with the agent, they screwed me on the terms, revoked the salary, and put me on a draw instead–which means starting “in the hole” with money that I was expected to repay from commissions. This bait and switch got worse when they moved me to 100% commission meaning NO BASE PAY whatsoever. He made lots of promises, but fired me when I tried to collect on them.
This new job can keep us afloat, but I just need to ask for a little help to get over the hump of being unemployed for 3 weeks and not being paid for the last month before that.
I appreciate you and your generosity. Thank you
