This crisis has meant that I have unofficially lost my restaurant job. With no customers walking through our doors, the business has been forced to use skeleton staff, rostering on only managers and supervisors on salaries. I am a student and have worked full time as well as studying full time and have now lost my only source of income with the fear of rent and general lifestyle costs weighing heavy. Working as a permanent part timer – I have only 15 hours of annual leave accrued which means me taking a lower wage for the benefit of annual leave/sick leave has now been made redundant. I am truly crippled with anxiety while trying to figure out my next move in beating unemployment and trying to stay above the poverty line.
