Please Help My Family
Organized by: Amy Ferree
I am an employers dream employee. I am very good at my job and I was always taught to do the right thing. Well in the spirit of that I informed my employer of my need for surgery and submitted a request for a medical leave of absense. I was assured my position would be waiting for me when I returned. I submitted my doctors release of restrictions and ability to return to work. I was then informed of my termination via email before I ever returned. They are also fighting unemployment. I have requested a hearing because when I feel that something I strongly believe in is being questioned I refuse to give up the fight. I saved up in order to keep us afloat during my anticipated recovery time but when I didn't return to work when I was able...the saved money ran out. Now we are struggling hard. I have to pick and choose my battles and because I need to keep a roof over my families head, I am choosing to pay whay will facilitate that. Everything else has to wait like the car payments and the internet and credit cards. I think we are good people. We work every night running a concession stand donating every penny it makes to the American Cancer Society's Relay for life. We donate our time and gas. We don't retain a penny. Maybe you could find it in your heart to help us out. Any amount will help I am falling further and further behind and I am doing everything I can hold it together.
