I’m being moved to the 4pm to Midnight shift at my work. As I was a part of the last group hired, we have no senority and get no choice. I’m a part of 3 people who are getting moved. Also we’re going from our manager to a new one who doesn’t schedual people with 2 days off in a row as she believes it makes them “soft”. No exeptions.
My son is school age, and SO works 7:00am to 3:30 🙁
Finding a new job is on the table, but this job pays so well, and there’s no other plant I can transfer too. Of I did find a new job, It would have to be in a different industry and It’s not going to pay as well. The job market is so hard…
I cried all night when i came home. How is this going to work out?

Aw, I’m so sorry. I understand how tough it is. I work 7p-7a and I never see FI. I don’t know what I would do if I had a kid involved. 🙁 I sincerely hope you are able to find something else that will help benefit you and your family. Do you work 5 nights a week now?

The job was tough enough without the new shift change, They only make the schedule 1 week an advance, so I’ve gotten 5 vacation days off in the last year :/
Our busy season is the worst. Days off go out the window. Sometimes I’ll get a Monday off and then won’t get a day off until the next schedule’s Friday!! It’s crazy!!!!!
This new boss I’m getting doesn’t like us “new” employees (This is my 3rd year here) becasue they called us a new name and gave us the same job as all of them, but pay us 1/2 as much as them.
