The Olson's trying to get home
Organized by: Gabriella Olson
Hi everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read our story. We are Jacob and Gabriella Olson. So let me explain our story, we come from Utah and have traveled to Alaska because I was offered a great job opportunity and we made the decision to move here. So my wife and I left our jobs/home and used our whole savings to drive and live in Alaska with our two dogs. So it's been two months now and shortly after getting here to Alaska, the verbal agreements made with my new employer weren't being honored. The pay is substantial less and the job description is nothing what I was told. My wife and I were promised housing expenses covered with a company car, which that didn't happen upon starting what I thought would be my new career. So now after two months, we have depleted all of our savings and checkings and now we are just trying to get back home to Utah and start over. We really appreciate any help we can get. I have definitely learned a valuable lesson in getting future employment agreements on paper before moving across the country and asking my wife to do the same. Thank you so much for reading our story and for any donations that will help us get back home. God bless.
