I’ve never done something like this before so I apologize for any ignorance to how all this works. My story is luckly fairly simple. But frustrating. I had finally been financially stable from a job I had gotten hired onto a year ago. After so many flops and temp jobs. I felt I had finally gotten work that was going to sustain me for a long time. Maybe even my whole life. Things changed however, new management and changes to the commission structure completely screwed up everything. I was making at LEAST 1000 per paycheck with commission included. With the changes made to the job. I was lucky to make 500. I felt I was betrayed and voiced my opinion on the matter to upper management. Mind you, this was an open invitation by management to comment on the job and problems with we felt we had with it. My concerns were met with the usual managerial excuses. They knowing full well that they were giving us the run around. They knew this new commission structure was completely meant to cut back on how much we were getting paid. However, I’d soon regret voicing those concerns because soon after, I was getting write-ups for anything and everything. Before you knew it. I was being suspended with no pay, followed by being let go. This has destroyed all my financial stability that I had. It’s only been a month since my departure from my previous work place but the bills are already piling up.
$170 For a family phone bill
$90 for my insurance
$290 for my car payment
$75 for Internet
$40 total for my two cats for litter and food
$350 for rent
I know full well this sounds like nothing more than wanting a handout. But I’ve tried alternative methods. I’ve applied for unemployment but my employer is fighting it. Further delaying any chance of paying my bills. I do luckly have a new job I’m starting soon. But I don’t start till the 20th and it’ll be another 2 weeks before I get a paycheck from that. I’ll be a month and a half behind before I can get anything done. I can’t risk losing my car or God forbid letting my pets go hungry because of this unfortunate event in my life. If you’re willing to help me in anyway. I can’t express how much I appreciate it. Anything you’re willing to donate is more than appreciated. Some information as to my work place. I used to work for Cricket Wireless. I know, it seems crazy that I would make that much but at the time. The commission paid out handsomely and included bonuses. When they changed it, they took away the bonuses AND reduced how much we made her sale.
Anyway, in conclusion. Anything you’re willing to donate will be greatly appreciated. I just want to get my bills caught up and my pets fed.
Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this.
