against the walls of the halls of the RPDC. I walk, looking for others. The break room is barren, a spider has made its home in the popcorn machine. I round the ITOC. Black. But there are sounds. Unnatural sounds, rising and falling, mournful sounds. I want to see them, meet with them. It doesn't ... read more

The aftermath

I'm lucky to still have a job but not looking forward to being there. So many good people who were my friends will not be there today. I'll try not to throw up in the faces of the shit managers and dip shit directors.

There are people that enrolled less students than you, have no degrees and are still working at UOPX today. You should rally together!

Find out why you were "laid off" and join forces to sue Apollo for discriminating against you. I work for HR and there are hundreds of people currently employed with no degrees that barely enroll. If you get a half way decent lawyer it will be found it was wrongful termination. After you are taxed ... read more
