I am broken. I sat in a meeting with the people who have become my family and had to watch as each one broke down into tears. I maintained my composure to ask the difficult questions of my work place, only to have the “HR” rep attempt to belittle and provoke me into an argument. I spent the one shift I had this week explaining over and over to patrons where everyone was and had to relive that meeting over and over to provide them answers. Then I got to watch their faces as I delivered the news that their favourite staff members had no jobs. At no point did a manager offer to ease this burden for me. I am a casual and yet last night, I was the person telling our customers what had happened. It’s not fair.
