A lot (including a world-wide pandemic) has gone on since the layoffs/job cuts/reassignments at HyVee in mid-March.
It may not change much to talk about it, but just wondering how everyone is doing? Have you found new jobs? If not, how are you getting by? Sometimes it helps to hear how others are doing or get their thoughts and ideas when it’s hard to think of your own right now.
Are you able to find ways to help other fellow workers in the same boat right now, if so please share?
Did you lose your job entirely? Were you once full-time with benefits but now find yourself part-time with so few hours you wonder how you will make it? How are you managing not knowing how many hours a week to plan into your budget? What about health insurance?
If you are still working part-time at HyVee and have managed to find another part-time job to make ends meet, how cooperative is HyVee about allowing you to plan your schedule to accommodate both jobs?
Just wondering how others are doing. Good, bad, or indifferent please tell your story.
Nobody needs bashing, so those who want to blame others for their own job loss - please refrain. Everybody feels bad enough as it is and in many cases have been made to feel like they did something wrong even if they didn’t. A lot of good people with many years in at the stores have lost their livelihoods. And no, many of them were not making $15-$20/hour just to set the record straight.
Please let us know how you are...
