Some of you may remember recently, I was all upset about my Fiance losing his job.
Well I wasn’t utterly panic striken. He still had a second job, which paid well although it was only one night a week. Still better than nothing right?
Yeah, well he messaged me today while I am at work. He just lost that job as well. WTH???????????????????
I am shaking I am that upset. And I am trying very hard to not let me coworkers know that I am upset.
I really do not get it, why all this bad karma?????
And I am not to sure where to go from here either.

Was he laid off or he did something wrong ?
Ugh, I’m sorry, its very hard to keep and secure a job, let alone a good one these days! Perhaps he needs to look into a different field?

I work as a job coach..and hearing that, my first question is….what is he doing wrong? There is SUCH a low chance that this was a coincidence….
Maybe he needs to reevaluate his behaviour at work….did his work(s) give him a REASON why?
Being employable goes far beyond just being able to complete the tasks that he needs to complete….

@Firie: My Fiance and I struggle with jobs. I get one and he loses one. I lose one and he gets one. But then again there are underlining issues with him and work as well. He had a great job and quit it because it “hurt his shoulders”. He knew I was getting laid off and insisted on quitting with no back up what-so-ever (we’re completely broke). I understand how you feel. However your situation is way better than mine. My Fiance would rather play videogames than support his family and it breaks my heart. I hope you guys have better luck than we do and that your Fiance finds something quick.

He is a DJ at a pub He has been a DJ his WHOLE working life. He stepped back from DJing a small bit, and hence only works on night a week instead of being fulltime.
The new manager at the pub he works at put his mate on to DJ Saturday nights. Fiance was a little upset by this, he would of done the Saturday, but he gets it the managers mate.
Well now that manager has made the decision that his mate can have both nights.
Nothing about not being employable, not being good at his job or anything like that. And being a contractor he has no recourse pretty much.
I told him he better get in there and get his equipment out. Because all the audio and lighting equipment in that place is his. He has been there 10 years!!!

@ArmyWife8806: Not to thread jack, but I feel bad that your heart broken over your FI’s motivation- are you sure you want to get married?

@Firie: what that manager did was so low and unfair. I hope that another door opens for your Fiance now and he can go back to DJing full time somewhere else.

If he only works one night a week, then perhaps the manager needed someone with a more flexible schedule? Not trying to justify your FI’s firing, just maybe that’s it. It’s easier to have one guy do it all instead of multiple people doing the same thing.

I know this is going to sounds so cliche but I have so been there. Sometimes it’s really has nothing to do with the employee. Some managers play favorites, situations work out crappy, and I found the lower the job pays the more likely a worker is to get screwed.
It sounds like your Fiance needs to get there asap before they take anything of his. Also, could he dj parties? I mean if he has the equipment he could try to make some money for now doing weddings, school functions, etc. If I were him I would straight up ask his manager why he is getting fired. If it was for a good reason at least he can learn from the mistake. I’m surprised the manager didn’t tell him why.

Ugh! I’m sorry. That is so stressful. We’ve been there before as well. I hope he is able to find some work quickly.

@Eva Peron: Thanks. And there’s no doubt about wanting to marry him. As soon as he gets back his active status work won’t be a problem, but until then we’re screwed.
@Firie: Thank you! Sorry, I didn’t mean to thread jack but we’re in some what similar situations.
