Floofy:  I hope you fnd something you love! I would alo call OSHA on that place. It does not sound like a safe work environment.

No advice, just deepest concern for both of you.

You are right, as terrible as it is to be unemployed, a toxic work situation can

be MUCH worse. Hopes that you both find a much better situation very soon.

Floofy:  You made the right choice in quitting. The only thing I would’ve done differently is I would’ve given an extensive list of the real reasons I was pushed to quit, including the line leader. The boss needs to know what’s going on and that his employees are suffering. I also might have threatened to report them over the lack of accommodations for FI’s physical disabilities and access to water.

Wow, that is crazy. I would document everything you can and report them. Good luck in your search for a new job!!

Well if it’s any consolation, unemployment claims are at their lowest levels in 7 years so hopefully you will be able to get new jobs quickly — jobs that are MUCH better than what you’ve currently been dealing with! Fingers crossed for you.

OMG I would have done the exact same thing in your shoes.  Good for you for getting out of there.  Get your state’s department of labor on the phone.  I’m sure they would be very interested to hear your story.  Also if you haven’t done so already, put together a log of the various health/safety incidents you encountered while employed there.  The more info they have, the easier it will be for them to pursue this company.

Floofy:  also, I work for a labor union so I know how heartbreaking it is to see people stuck in terrible working conditions but too afraid to try and do anything about it. Maybe someday they’ll hit their breaking point and realize that they can make it better. we can only hope :-/
