The job I lost

I loved my job working for a major hotel. Unfortunately they fired me while I was under medical care. Getting a lawyer has not been successful for me because all of them want too much money because the case is taking so long due to the recession.

What it's like being unemployed

I lost my job while I was under medical care. Since then I have not found a job. I continue to send my resumes out and have posted them on every job search engine. The only reply I ever receive is that they chose someone more suitable for the position. This is horrible. My self esteem is extremely low. I have had to file for unemployment and social services. When are things going to change. It is too much for me to swallow.

Advice

  • For those of you reading this. I hope you have a job and if you do KEEP IT AND NEVER GET SICK.
