So, I got laid off. ;/ Fucked over again. The reason? Well, pretty much.. my friend got fucked over. I was training to take over for my friend, as he was transferring to another department. He hurt his hand.. bruised it, luckily didn't break anything. He had a notice from a doctor that he couldn't work heavy duty.. but they fucking IGNORED it.. and still pointed him. So, he got so many points.. he wasn't allowed to transfer. And me? They didn't have use for me.. so they let me go. ;/
First they told me it was because I wasn't learning.. but that's bullshit. First off, they put me with this redneck guy who they even admitted didn't like teaching people.. and I mostly had to learn from watching. I learned a lot.. even my friend admitted that I learned some things in the first week he didn't learn until the second week. And he took six weeks to learn the ropes.. they gave me ONE fucking week.. and a day. So.. yeah. I'm pretty pissed.. and hurt. ;/
The job sucked ass.. though it was good pay. I worked from 4:30 am til 3 pm.. that REALLY sucked. Also, they really were unorganized. I was supposed to come in Monday and Tuesday for only a couple hours for orientation.. where they went over safety and etc etc. Well, I got there Monday.. and they decided to wait.. they put me in the fucking factory without going over ANY safety classes. They gave me a hardhat, gloves, glasses and earplugs.. and made me pay $80 for steel toe boots with meditarsal (thing I spelled it right) guards. I wasn't prepared at all.. I was wearing ankle socks.. so.. the boots really fucked up my calves. ;/ So yeah, that really pissed me off.
A LOT of people have gotten fingers and toes squished.. and a few people died. It was pretty dangerous there.. my job was okay, as long as I was careful.. but I was lifting 1000-2000lbs of steel castings with just a crane.. and if it slipped, it coulda killed me. They told us about some of the accidents.. one girl got her hair caught in a machine that spins the steel castings around.. it scalped her all the way down to her shoulder. Luckily, she didn't die.. but other people have been killed and seriously injured. What really pissed me off was how they spoke of how money was more important than people. They were pissed because of one guy they had there for 3 days.. he smashed his foot, and they paid $9,000 to repair his foot.. and they were pissed he quit afterwards. Who the fuck would stay after smashing their toes off? I know I wouldn't..
But anyway.. sigh. Fucked over again. I might get a job where Trevor works.. but it's definitately not as good as pay.. and I really need at least 10 an hour to get out of the hole I'm in right now. ;/
I got a few commissions though.. so that'll be a little money. Here's hoping to all goes well..
