At A Loss

I've been at my job over 11 years and another lady I work with she's been there like 26 years.Well they want to get rid of us for reason's that don't make any sense.But we think it's because they want to hire people who will start at A lower wage.My neck really hurt's alot so I decided to take A paid sick day tomarrow.I'm entidled so I can so far  so I will take all I can for as long as I can.I'm going to make some phone call's tomarrow to see if I can speed thing's up with vocational rehab.But for now I need to lie down.

Sorry to hear that. That has happened to me in the past, being replaced by someone for a lower wage. This is very common now because people are so desperate for jobs that they can easily find someone who will work for a lot less than those who have been at it for a while. They are taking advantage of the high unemployment rate. There is definitely no loyalty to long term employees. You must have a lot of tension in your neck from the stress. Just what you need. Hope the rehab works for you.

I am so sorry to hear this. I know it seems when you are an older woman, it\'s hard to find work. My sister has been unemployed now for 2 years with working a few temporary jobs. And she has a great resume, but I think it hurts her because lower paying jobs won\'t hire her thinking she will leave in a heartbeat if something better comes along. This is not true, she just wants to have a job and work the rest of her life and be a productive member of society. Healing hugs to you... I hope you feel better in the morning. Take good care of YOU!
