Does anyone have any idea when we will get to go back to work? I'm about to receive my last UI check/ payment this week. It will be empty and I have to file an extension I guess.
I've been laid off since this started in March 2020. I'm a full time bartender. Insurance is almost $1,300 now to keep for 2 months but the " super saver" thankfully , allows me to keep until the end off May. My mental and emotional status is about as low as it's ever been. I can't find a job anywhere so looks like in 2 months I'll be losing insurance as well. I just need to go back to work and talk to people , coworkers , feel like I have a purpose and a life again. Make money.
Ive lost everything this year! I was House hunting when this went down. Prequalified and looking for my dream home. Top of my game. I had a really nice savings account for the down payment. Everything is gone. Every last dollar!! I had saved up 30k. Our wonderful DETR/ UI agency gave me $270 a week when this first started. $270! I go from 40+ hours a week and tips to $270 a week. That didn't even cover my rent a month. I live week to week still .
Do you know how pathetic that feels? How defeated and sad?! No more house. No savings. No extra money for even gas sometimes. No friends anymore . No unemployment benefits anymore and pretty soon no insurance !
This is the first year my daughter got nothing for her birthday. Nothing. What mother does that. She understands and I've been able to get her a little something every week to make up for it.
How can MGM do this to us after this long. No wonder people are k–ling themselves. If I didn't have a kid I'd be dead. That's exactly how I feel. Trust me if I could get a job anywhere else (not even bartending ) I would. FML ! PS I'm sorry this is so negative and hostile. I'm venting. It's been the hardest year of my life and I can't even see the end. I need a job
