And I'm so THRILLED to finally be working as i said in another post. I'm ecstatic. 30 hours a week, 8.25 an hour, future management training in 6
months for shift mgr to get a raise to 8.75 an hour.
And then last night I added up what I'll make. With taxes out, I'll get 700 a month.
I was thrilled to be able to get off food stamps finally. My child and I were getting 360 a month.
I knew my rent would raise from the non working rent of 50 a month to about 200.
I then remembered that I'm going to have to repay my student loan since i had to leave school cuz the loans ran dry haflway through my bachelors
degree..... 500 a month.
I was going to use this job to pay off some tickets from the past, get my misdemeanor cleared, get into school with the 4000 i have left out of my
loans to go for Phlebotomy to draw blood and get good money of 10 to 14 an hour....
Add up what I need to pay a month. Out of 700 a month. School and rent will take all my monthly earnings. It took me two years to find THIS job, much
less now try to find a second or third job.
I can now see why some people prefer to stay on govt aid; especially when things like this happen.
Now I have to scour the food banks to find food because i can not put any money to food, cuz school is 'THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE
TO PAY BACK, NO IFS ANDS OR BUTS." and rent obviously. There is my 700 a month right there.
The most happiest day of my life, finally finding work, lasted a day before reality set in. By finally finding work, I just screwed my family big
time. How long will it take til I find a second job? Can I even work a second job when my first one has my hours and days all over the place? nights,
days and weekends, etc?
devastation. it really sucks.
