Unfortunately I am a casual worker and have no accrued any annual leave, so i have no been able to be payed this week. I lost a majority of my shifts last week and have been told that the place is shutting indefinitely. I pay board, have bills to pay and a debt to pay off. I don’t know what my future holds and I am going to have to dig into my savings.
I’m actually better off than most. My friends have lost their jobs and they put a high amount of their wages towards rent. I believe that the country needs to put a hold on rent and mortgages immidiently. This will help ease the anxiety and fear that this pandemic has caused.
