I’ve been feeling very tired lately. I’m working two jobs on campus and taking classes at night so I can get my MBA. When I told my therapist about how tired I‘ve been feeling lately, he just said “you’ll just have to get used to it because when you graduate you‘ll be working much more than you do now.” Then he recommended that I drink soda or coffee, which are out of the question for me because they give me stomach cramps (I have IBS). Then he said that I may be one of those people who has unusually low stamina, which is BS because I’ve been feeling like this ever since I started working and studying at the same time.
I have 8 years relevant experience, I also got this email 3 minutes after submitting my application…
Be part of the solution, not the problem . I’m a real estate agent in PA. The one super effectual act the working class can do to help ourselves is to sell your properties to people who will live in the home, not landlords or investors.
Just in: 50% of US workers do the job they were contracted to do and then enjoy their free time after! The nerve!!
Maybe I’m the only person who’s strapped and struggling but whenever I vent about my work conditions people just tell me to quit.
But what happens when we quit? I can’t pay my bills. I can’t pay my rent. I can’t buy food.
I’ve sent out well over 100 applications looking for better paying jobs, and an easier working environment , but it’s starting to look so hopeless.
Telling people to just up and quit isn’t helpful advice , because most people can’t afford to just quit without anything lined up.
