I am freaking out because I have no job and no money

nikkirie started this conversation

I am so scared, Christmas is coming and I have no money and no job. I do not know what to do. The bills are piling up faster than I can possibly come up with money to pay them. My kids are not going to have a Christmas and it is all my fault. Please help.

I am so sorry to hear that. You are welcome :) I went through that as well in the past on a job and it is crazy, you would think it would be against the law. I know that all states are different though. You should check the labor laws in your state just to make sure that they do not prohibit this from happening because it is very unfortunate.

Tell them to show you the paper that they say you signed. If you did sign it and it does say that you cannot get paid if you do not work a full 10 days then there really isnt much you can do, however if they are unable to show you proof that you signed a paper then I would contact an attourney. In the future make sure that you read everthing word for word before you sign anything.

They are saying that I signed paperwork saying that I knew that I cannot get paid if I do not work a full 10 days. What do I do in that case?

A place of buss if u do work for them u don't care if its one day or two they got to pay u for the time u work for them they can get in a lot of trouble for not giving u your pay. Go back down to department of labor and let them know that they are holding your pay. Good luck to u

I am freaking out a few months ago I left a perfectly stable job for a contract gig where I would make more doing something in my degree field. Since then it has been a nightmare. They never paid me for almost two months worth of work and I have gotten the Department of Labor involved but they havent kept up with it since. I got another job and when the holiday hit I made sure everybody knew that I was going back to my familys for the holiday. I came back on Friday and was sent home because you cannot miss a day for any reason your first 3 weeks. I was in shock. I told everybody before I was hired that the trip was already paid for set in stone and I still got fired. I go in today to pick up my check and they tell me that I cannot get one because I was only there 6 days and the only way I can get a check is if I work a full 10 days. I've got bills I've made promises to pay bills based off of this check and now I am being told I cannot get it. I have no phone so any other job I have applied for I can't follow up with. My friends phone isnt working either...I do not know what to do I am freaking out and falling apart. I tried to better my situation and its back fired 1000 fold.

I am really scared for my future. I have no job at the moment and my bills are piling up. I dont have family anymore since they disowned me as they say two years ago for me loving a man they didnt. now im on my own. my bf doesnt make enough for both of us. we also are hungry alot. I wish life was easier for us. we live in a nasty one bedroom apartment thats so noisy, I wanna scream. I know I should b happy with what ive got but its hard. I need clothes, I need panties, I need bras, I need
alot of things.

I'm self employed and am not getting any business. Money is running out and if I don't get any serious work or a job (I'm 59 and finding out about age discrimination) we may be homeless by March. Other than getting involved in illegal activity I don't know what to do.

 in response to Bdaa...   I am also 59 years old, laid off from my good job, and I have the same unemployment situation! I know how you feel. I go from being depressed to hopeful and then back to depressed again. All we can do is hang in there. I also am praying for me and you. I was a retail district manager. I have applied for so many things. I am either over or under qualified. Maybe we and others in our situation should put our heads together and come up with something we could all do. Its worth a shot.
