It’s been a tough start to the year, with less and less shifts being given out already because of a slow start to the year and this job being my only income stream. It’s been a struggle to make ends meet. I have my last shift for the forseeabkle furture tomorrow night, and from then on we have no guarantee of any work at all. I’m lucky that I live with my parents and don’t pay rent, but my mum (who is also a causal worker) has also lost shifts and will soon be down to none. So I can’t really ask them to contribute to my expenses of my car loan or credit card debt that I have accumulated since the beginning of the year.
