I work casually in events, I have lost every single shift up until mid-June about a week a half ago. My employer only informed us of this about 3 days ago, so all our shifts were cancelled but we were told nothing about the future of our jobs and if they were going to do anything to help us – the only thing that offered was counselling. It was a week of confusion and being unsure if I still had a job. Also due to the government not really offering any support to casual workers until today I was feeling grim and incredibly upset, I would cry myself to sleep almost every night. I have great co-workers, family and friends I have been able to lean on and vent my frustrations and cry to but without them, I believe this time would be so much more harder. I know the only reason my job is keeping me employed is just that they will need us when it all starts getting back to normal, but I hope by then I have found a new job in a company that will hopefully treat me better during a time of crisis. I don’t just want to be an afterthought.
