    Well they finally pissed me off enough for me to walk out at work today.

    I got tired of working 9 hrs a day with no breaks and putting up with there abusive management.

    I was only making 15.00 an hr. and that still really didn't cover the bills.
    since they would only give us 36 hrs a week.

    SO now I am on my own with no income and no insurance.

    I am a hardworker, I never missed work have been there for 4 years.

    They have laided off 5 people and now they are also cutting off our health care,we also have 0 paid holidays.

    Fuckin slave drivers!


    Sorry BHW fellow members, just needed to vent and since i spend at least 4-6 hours a day here, I felt that this was the place.

    SO I am hoping good karma will come my way.

    Thanks for listening.

    Sounds like another responsible decision..... no other options or plan and you walk out. LOL

    MAN THE FUCK UP UNTIL YOU HAVE OTHER OPTIONS OR CAN IMPROVE YOUR SITUATION.

    Well you have been here a while. Surely you have taken a lot of information in. You must not be taking action. Get in there and do something there is a ton of money to be made. Good luck, with your good work ethic you will make crap loads

    Sad but true, how much do you have in savings? Unless you have methods started you might not get paid for 30+days and that would only be for 2 weeks!

    Is your rent of mortgage covered?

    You should have created a situation that would make your employer want to politely fire you - and then collect unemployment.

    If you're in the states, which I assume you are, why didn't you report your employer? There are laws you know; laws that if broken - and if you can prove they were broken - can land your employer some hefty fines.

    You can still collect unemployment even if you quit. Hard to believe. I own a biz with 15 employees. I had one resign and file and receive unemployment for 6 months. If you quit you usually don't start receiving right away as if you were laid off...it can take 6 weeks to kick in.

    If you always wait for everything to be perfect or safe, you'll never make your move.

    To go ahead and quit the rotten job instead of suffering in the name of "safety" IS manning up. That IS the other option and the improvement to the situation!

    I walked out on a job one time because they popped a random UA.. trying to catch this guy that was a horrible worker and told everyone that he get stoned and comes to work.. well they caught him and me also i said screw this and walked out.

    I then realized shit i have nothing to call back on.. bad mistake. But lucky enof I knew that i was one of their hardest worker I knew they didnt want to lose me so I just called the boss back up 2 weeks later and said look if i can pass a ua can I have my job back? He agreed.. so i got someone elses piss and pass it and continued to smoke lol.. So maybe you should just talk to your boss and see if you can works somtehing out nobody wants to see you in the dumps.. that is if you have nothing else to fall on..

    I have a decent amoun tof cash in my savings to get by on for a little while, but I know that It won't last too long.

    I build furniture for home and hotels.

    In my state there is not even a law stating that employers have to even give you a lunch break no matter how many hours you work in a day.

    everyone that has been fired they fought there claim and won, not letting them collect unemployment. Believe me I would love to get fired if that were not the case.

    We have no unions to protect our trade,and the owner refuses to let anyone even mention one. It pisses him off.

    I think I might put a message on my answering machine to the effect of-

    " If you are calling about the furniture makers union meeting please visit the website for details, and rememeber our meetings are every friday at 7:00 pm"

    Think that will get him pissed and make him paranoid, I'll see what the local unions say about forming one tommorrow.

    I have tried a few methods, but with working 9 hrs a day busting my ass I only had a few hours a day in the evenings to try things. Not an excuse,but I have not found a way to works for me to make consistent money online yet.

    Thanks for the support.

    I didn't say wait for perfect circumstances... guess what if you don't like your job either have another job lined up first or get a side project going that can support yourself. This chump took it for 4 years without trying to better himself, there is no excuse.

    Quitting a job without any plan or thought into how you will get through the next week isn't manning up, it's being fucking retarded and irresponsible, especially if this guy has a family or kids counting on him.

    Dude- don't be a total asshat here... tell your boss that you had a real bad day and that you want your job back. You do not make enough to live with that job and without it you are in deep sneakers.

    You make feel about 2 inches tall when you do it but it is the sensible thing to do.

    Way to support a fellow member!

    This chump has money in the bank, I have enough to sustain my lifestyle for several years. What I said is that I have no income now, dude, why such a dick?


    And the reason I stayed there for 4 years is because I like building furniture, and the health insurance.

    That's just crab-in-bucket talk that makes it seem like you're trying to justify yourself staying in some job that you should have walked off of 10 years ago.

    Such fear-ridden reasoning is for peasants, and for the employers (aka slave drivers) that want to keep them from making the leap to freedom.

    Well obviously the jig is up now!

    Yep, Life goes on my friend.

    I needed to make a change for 2010.

    Just got the push... Lets see what happens.

    I can always build furniture and sell it on CL. :)

    Dude what the hell is you talking about? MrE is giving good advice. No wonder so many noobies don't make money, because they don't use their brain! I made sure before I quite my job I had a steady/stable income backup. Why? because that is the smart thing to do. If you quit without steady income or backup, you are going to run to the poor house fast. The condition of the economy today makes it a terrible time to quit your job unless you can make up the income in another way.

    Fortunately it looks like the OP have savings, so at least he have something for now. Hopefully he don't have a family to support and he make some money quick.
